Winter Park Horticulture

Winter Park, Florida is the ideal town to window shop and absorb culture in unique ways. From the great Saturday's Farmers Market, to dining al fresco with tapas and fine wine, finding great spices or the latest cooking tool then buying local artwork for your home, Winter Park is a shopper's paradise.  Walking is easy in Winter Park. Large sidewalks allow you (and your pampered pooch) to stroll under large Southern oak trees, espying landscape vignettes of themed gardens, and tropical plants softening the architectural fa├žade of the quaint shops eager for you to stop in.

Chuck Trice, Winter Park's Assistant Director Chief of Landscaping oversees the landscaping crews as they maintain the trees and gardens throughout the city's parks while businesses create their own floral gardens in window boxes, containers, and landscape beds for their clients.

Take a stroll as we meander up and down, in and out of Park Avenue.  Do you know where you can find these great plant combinations?
