About College Park Main Street

College Park is a vibrant neighborhood located just outside of downtown Orlando where you can experience urban living with a small town feel. This community is made up of some of the finest local retailers, award winning restaurants, and small businesses found in Central Florida. College Park’s wide selection of services, bungalow-style homes, brick tree-lined streets and many parks and lakes create a vibrant lifestyle and a comfortable place for residents to call home.

The community pride can be felt at any one of our popular annual events, that help bring alive the vibrancy, optimism, and shared values of College Park. “Come. Enjoy Life Along the Drive”!

“It’s been our pleasure to work and live in College Park since 1989. Our company has witnessed substantial growth in our local community since the implementation of the College Park Partnership which has transitioned into College Park Main Street. The support to small businesses has been invaluable to Great Graphics Photoscan along with enhancing the local economy and our property values. The variety of annual events along Edgewater Drive have been instrumental in creating a small town feel within a larger city. All these attributes make living in CP a rewarding and profitable endeavor!” -Greg Young, Great Graphics Photoscan
