Engelwood Park Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Engelwood Park is a well-known, mostly Hispanic community in the Orlando area. Making up nearly 50 percent of the population, Hispanics easily outnumber other residents in this community. With this high population of Hispanic residency comes a great deal of Hispanic influence on the area. Many of the roads, businesses, and signs are in Spanish throughout the community.
Located between several major roadways, Engelwood Park has become an excellent community for those who rely on easy highway access for work and entertainment. The East to West Expressway and Lake Underhill Road on the northern border provide quick access to Interstate 4 and the Florida Greenway. On the southern border is Curry Ford Road, and to the west is Semoran Boulevard. All of these major roadways make Engelwood Park one of the best communities for high accessibility.
If out-of-town travel is necessary, Engelwood Park is only 2-5 minutes’ drive down Lake Underhill Road from the Orlando Executive Airport. From here, travelers are able to make regional flights across the region and the world through connecting flights.
Recreation is popular in the Engelwood Park area. With many young families, it isn’t uncommon to see the streets and area parks filled with children.

The community center provides many recreation activities and group sports for children and families in the area. Swimming pools, basketball courts, running tracks, a large gym, and many other features make this a popular destination for active families. If bowling is more to your liking, AMF Semoran Lanes provides individual and league games on an ongoing basis.
