11 Great Neighborhoods: Audubon Park & Coytown

Discover these two gems in the heart of Orlando.


Take a peek inside this deceptively sleepy and chic national Main Street award-winning Eco district. With its towering oak tree-lined streets, framed by mid-century modern homes, surrounded by a thriving hive of vintage retail, award-winning food, and a casual night scene, Audubon Park Garden District (APGD) is the place to be any time of the week.

Developed in the 1950s and 60s, for decades the area catered to nearby Orlando Air Force Base and then later the Naval Training Center Orlando. Since then, the Audubon Park Garden District has blossomed into a thriving community of unique businesses and seemingly endless events and activities.

Neighboring the APGD is Coytown, with a tiny population of only 1,013 residents. Living in this community offers neighbors an urban-suburban mix feel, with easy access to East Colonial Drive, I-4, and 436. For families, the public schools in Coytown are highly rated. For those looking for green spaces, Lake Druid Park is a great escape from the hustle and bustle of urban-city life. This 19-acre lakeside park offers trails, a sand volleyball court, a dog run, and a unique mountain biking facility and track! Residents can also enjoy an eclectic selection of small businesses and chains. The local Colonial Ace Hardware provides that small-town hardware store feel and service, while Barnes & Noble offers an all-encompassing 90’s bookstore experience for all ages.

Coytown residents enjoy shopping at the iFresh Market on East Colonial Drive, one of Orlando’s largest Asian grocery stories, for some incredible ingredients (and one of the best dumpling spots in the city). Locals also frequent nearby Chicken Fire, a hot chicken staple in the City Beautiful, Black Bean Deli for their amazing Cuban sandwiches and coffee, Shin Jung Korean BBQ offering traditional Korean cuisine, and even a grill-it-yourself option, the Loving Hut for vegan deliciousness, and more.
