Venture north of the castles, crowds and congestion to an outdoor oasis. With miles of lush landscape, more than 2,000 scenic lakes and rivers, and acres of Florida wilderness, North Orlando invites you to get back to nature with plenty of outdoor activities.
Altamonte Springs is home to Crane’s Roost Park, a 45-acre collection of walkways, cobblestone pathways, and swaying palms encircling Cranes Roost Lake. A popular destination for outdoor events and activities year-round, the park is located in the heart of Uptown Altamonte and close to shopping, dining and entertainment.
Further north, Casselberry and its Triplet Chain of Lakes are perfect for watersports. Golf at Lake Mary’s Timacuan Golf and Country Club, or hike at Longwood’s Spring Hammock Preserve. Pack a picnic and head to Wekiwa Springs for hiking, canoeing, or even a dip in the springs. Enjoy a relaxing trip to beautiful Venetian Gardens Park in Leesburg, featuring a breathtaking lakeside view, picnic areas and access to several near-shore islands.
