ORANGE CYCLE


Schoolin’ Orlando

Quaint bungalows notwithstanding, the most common sights in College Park are joggers, cyclists and dog-walkers traversing the vibrant downtown quarter’s charming brick-lined, university-appellated streets. It’s no surprise the neighborhood scores high on walkability (and bikeability) ratings, as both are vital ingredients in a community that places the pedestrian above the automobile. Had noted urban activist Jane Jacobs lived in Orlando, she might very well have chosen to live in College Park – just like writer Jack Kerouac, astronaut John Young and current Orlando mayor Buddy Dyer, who can often be seen walking his dog on North Westmoreland Drive. The neighborhood’s main artery – the ambulation-friendly Edgewater Drive – is home to a diverse array of shops, cafés, restaurants and businesses, many of which have been around since the ’40s and ’50s. On the corner of Par Street sits a golf course – Orlando’s oldest – drawing hackers and scratch golfers alike to its narrow fairways. It’s truly a self-contained community, and that’s just the way its denizens like it.
