With its wide, tree-lined streets, peaceful cul-de-sacs, and easy access to major roadways, Windhover offers residents the best of suburban life. Some of the homes, especially those located in the southwest quadrant of the community, enjoy picturesque views of Lake Cane, which sits just outside the neighborhood’s boundaries.
Windhover encompasses area code 32819. The community is bounded by Conway Windermere Road on the north, Ronald Reagan Florida’s turnpike 259 on the east, Vineland Road on the south, and Lake Cain and Turkey Lake Road on the west. The area is primarily residential, although you will find some commercial buildings such as shops and restaurants.
Home designs in Windhover tend toward Ranch-style. A variety of single-family homes were built throughout the 1970s and 1980s, the same period that many of the neighborhood’s duplexes, condominiums, and townhomes were constructed as well.
Of the many appealing aspects of the Windhover community is Lake Cane. This 85-acre lake, which is located northeast of the Turkey Lake Road and Vineland Road intersection, is the home of Lake Kane-Marsha Park. This scenic park contains several miles of wooded trails that are excellent for hiking, biking, and running.
Also at the lake is the Lake Cane Tennis Center, a public tennis facility that is operated by the Orange County Parks and Recreation. The facility includes 17 state-of-the-art tennis courts that have championship lighting for night play. The Center hosts over 30 U.S.T.A. Sanction Tournaments annually.
To the north of Windhover is Turkey Lake, which offers a 300-acre onshore park called the Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake. This well-maintained park offers picnicking, seven miles of hiking nature trails, three miles of biking trails, a fishing pier, playgrounds, and overnight camping.
