Baldwin Park is a redeveloped planned community that is known for its amenities, convenient location and picturesque charm. Formerly a military base, Baldwin Park features single-family homes and townhomes that range in price from the mid 200’s to about $3,000,000. The HOA dues and taxes are reasonable for the value. Baldwin Park was architected to model more historic Orlando neighborhoods such as College Park where many of the homes are craftsmen style with small garages or with small second-floor garage apartments. While the most of the homes were constructed in 2005 to 2007, the community planners successfully avoided the cookie-cutter feel that you find in many newer planned communities. You will certainly feel like you’re living in a unique place when in Baldwin Park.
Exceedingly walkable and bike-able, Baldwin Park also offers two public swimming pools, a small community gym and a 2.5-mile bike/pedestrian path that encircles Lake Baldwin, where the main street through the downtown dead-ends. Traffic is generally slow because the streets were purposely built a bit narrow and windy to reduce speeding and drivers who might be tempted to cut through the community en route to other destinations.
A brisk walk, run or ride around Lake Baldwin, followed by Dinner at Seito Sushi then Frozen Yogurt at I CE NY Baldwin Park. The chicken wings at Gator’s Dockside while watching the game is also a good time.
