The New Winter Park Community Center

Winter Park FL New Community CenterWhether you are new to the city of Winter Park or not, it is easy to see why this town is well known for its historic charm, A-rated public schools, top-notch private college and of course, Park Avenue. But you may not know yet about the city’s smart green initiatives and clever city planning. One of the more recent initiatives is the construction of the new Winter Park Community Center.

This advanced, new facility commenced the opening of its doors to the 38,000 square-foot building, with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday, September 23rd, 2011.

Winter Park FL New Community Center OpeningDespite the mid-morning heat during the outside ceremony, excitement buzzed through the crowd of on-lookers, including media, local residents & business owners and government officials alike, with anticipation to finally view the new facility.

The center is located in downtown Winter Park’s historic neighborhood of Hannibal Square, at 721 West New England Avenue. Hannibal Square is located two blocks west of Park Avenue, offering various choices in fine dining, fashionable shopping, home furnishings, residential living and much more. This area was actually the first planned community in central Florida back in the 1860’s, strategically built around the railroad which served commerce and travel. Today, Hannibal Square is still a thriving community, rich with history, charming village ambiance and a new Community Center to keep the local residents and merchants connected.

According to the Winter Park/Maitland Observer, the new Community Center was planned as part of the city’s sustainability initiative. “The center was specifically designed to be more energy efficient, conserve water and improve indoor air quality for visitors and guests, making it the city’s first ‘Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design’ (LEED) certified green building.”

“The City of Winter Park’s Sustainability Program implements policies and programs that provide environmental, economic and social benefits to residents, businesses and government, which strengthen the city’s position as an international model of sustainable practices and commerce.”
