Baldwin Park is located in Orlando just outside of downtown and is built on the site of what used to be known as the Orlando Naval Training Center which closed in 1999, after being a major part of the community for almost 60 years.
Baldwin Park is a planned community much like that of Celebration in Osceola County, Florida in that it is considered a Traditional Neighborhood Development where garages are located in the rear of the homes so as not to clutter the landscape. There are also no walls or gates separating the community from its neighbors.
The demolition of the Naval Training Center became a massive recycling undertaking and much of it was used in creating an eco-friendly community.
Baldwin Park is made up of an array of single-family homes, townhomes, apartments and custom homes. The community was built with wide sidewalks and was created around a Village Center, with shopping, dining and office space.
There are several community centers including Grace Hopper Hall and Enders Park. Both are resident only centers with pools & fitness rooms. There is also Blue Jacket Park which offers tennis and basketball courts, a baseball complex as well as track & field, soccer field, playgrounds, picnic areas, etc.
There are also two lakes located in and adjacent to Baldwin Park. They are Lake Baldwin and Lake Susannah. Lakefront land has been donated for a commemorative Veterans Park planned for the northern shore of Lake Baldwin. Additionally, with the help of the Audubon Society they are working on restoring the wetlands.
Baldwin Park is a great place to live, work & play!
