About College Park
College Park is Orlando’s best kept secret. Located between Fairbanks Avenue to the North, Colonial Drive to the South, Highway 441 to the West and Orange Avenue as the Eastern boundary and set around 287 acres of lakes, including Lake Adair, Ivanhoe, Concord and Silver.
This lovely, unique, urban neighborhood has, for decades been home to some of Orlando’s most distinguished community leaders. Some are as world famous as Astronaut John Young and author Jack Kerouac. John Young attended Princeton Elementary School and graduated from Orlando High School and the city respectfully named the world class Science Center for him in recognition of his enormous contribution to space science.
