Lake Nona... a Bike-friendly Community

Lake Nona is a 7,000 acre planned community being developed in southeast Orange County, principally to service the growing life sciences center (dubbed Medical City) near Orlando International Airport. 40% of the land remains as parks and open green space, and 44 miles of paved and unpaved trails are planned. The Town Center when completed will be adjacent to the Medical City. We'll revisit as the community grows - when built out, Lake Nona will include residential communities, retail centers, and recreational facilities including the new United States Tennis Association (USTA) complex. Detailed map and photos below.)

COMMENTS AND PHOTOS... Lake Nona

Planned as a pedestrian/bike friendly community, similar to Baldwin Park and Celebration, the trails throughout Lake Nona are primarily neighborhood and commuter trails, running (mostly) parallel to streets. Other than the park area by the YMCA, there is virtually no shade. When the new downtown is built out, amenities appear, and planned trail connectors are complete, this might be an interesting cool-weather ride.


Lake Nona Trails

Trails and paths run through Lake Nona, linking neighborhoods, schools, parks, and business. Many run along the roadway while others go off-road. When built out, 44 miles of trails are planned.


Medical City

The Medical City is linked by trails to other areas of the Lake Nona development. It includes the University of Central Florida College of Medicine and Health Sciences, Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute, the Orlando VA Medical Center, Nemours Children's Hospital, a University of Florida Research and Academic Center, and more to come. Central Florida Veterans Memorial Park is located next to the VA Medical Center.


Other Nearby Biking

A roadside trail along Moss Park Road leads to Moss Park - one mile remains to be completed. A roadside trail off Moss Park Road along John Wycliffe Blvd. links to more housing (outside Lake Nona, but serving the Medical City and Wycliffe Center).
