Downtown Winter Garden, listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, is a vibrant and genuine small downtown and local gathering place for residents within Central Florida. It is comprised of local businesses and unique shops and restaurants that are supported by the local community. Downtown Winter Garden is considered a slice of Old Florida. It maintains its hometown charm and is always filled with people of all ages, including lots of families, strolling its brick-lined streets, walking dogs, and cycling. Right in the middle of downtown is an iconic clock tower and "outdoor living room" with a mosaic-tiled public fountain lined with bench swings, a gazebo that serves as a stage for year-round entertainment, and a portion of a 22-mile award-winning bike trail. Downtown's aesthetic is warm and understated. A number of complimentary amenities are right in downtown including an interactive splash park, historical museums, an art gallery, and a linear park and oversized Downtown Pavilion that is home to the award-winning weekly farmers market. A historically-preserved theatre and an indoor food hall and market anchored by a craft brewery rounds out the downtown entertainment options. The picturesque downtown area is filled with colorful flowers and landscaping, brick buildings, and a streetscape that tells a story about the community's history and character. It exudes warmth and energy, yet maintains a relaxed charm that makes it a favorite place for all. If we win, the money will be used for marketing and promotion so more people will know of this hidden gem.
