The centerpiece of a lavish winter retreat since 1887, Park Avenue has long been the place for a relaxing stroll in elegant surroundings. Downtown Winter Park’s charm is magnified in the truly unique details: hidden gardens and side streets that are home to locally-owned shops, a farmers’ market that attracts both locals and visitors alike each Saturday morning, festive parades that mark the seasons and a scenic boat tour that cruises the canals between the City’s lakes overlooking the area’s most prestigious homes. Often called “Little Europe,” Park Avenue in downtown Winter Park is a year-round destination that is sure to charm visitors of all ages.
Central Park is the crown jewel of all the city’s parks. Conveniently located on Park Avenue in the heart of the downtown shopping district, this 11-acre park boasts shady oak trees, landscaped planters, sitting areas, open space and three beautiful fountains. There is even a rose garden at the southern corner of Central Park. The lush foliage and relaxing atmosphere make it the perfect environment for a picnic.
