Rock Lake Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
A traditional neighborhood with ranch-style homes priced from $50,000 to $175,000, Rock Lake is situated near two of the city’s most traveled arterials, Colonial Drive and Orange Blossom Drive. Home designs include concrete block and simple frame styles, and many have mature oak trees with lots of shade.
Located in the 32805 zip code, Rock Lake is bordered on the north by West Colonial Drive, on the south by West Washington Street, on the west by Hartley Place, and on the east by North Orange Blossom Trail.
Just south of the neighborhood is the Citrus Bowl, a 72,000 seat multi-purpose stadium that hosts football games and monster truck shows. When the Citrus Bowl hosts an event, Rock Lake residents can walk just a few blocks to the stadium. The Citrus Bowl hosts the annual collegiate bowl game by the same name on January 1st.
Colonial Drive is the city’s longest east to west thoroughfare, and Orange Blossom Trail is the longest north to south road. Residents also have easy access to John Young Parkway, a north to south arterial. Rock Lake is only a five-minute drive from downtown, and residents can reach the Amway Center, Lake Eola Park, and the main Orange County Library in less than 10 minutes.
Residents enjoy the Rock Lake Community Center on North Tampa Avenue for recreation, which includes basketball courts, tennis courts, and a playground. Rock Lake residents also utilize Lorna Doone Park next to the Citrus Bowl, a 16-acre park with concrete picnic tables, basketball courts, and a swing set.
One of the benefits of living in Rock Lake is that the headquarters for the Orange County Sheriff Department is located nearby at 2500 West Colonial Drive, and patrol cars travel through the neighborhood frequently, giving residents an additional measure of security.
