Project Description



With the excitement of the theme parks around, you can often forget to admire all that nature has to offer you. Only a 30-minute drive from CLC Encantada is the centre of Orlando where there are many informative city walks that will show you how stunning the local nature can be.

Winter Park

Winter Park is a lovely suburban city, only 15 minutes from downtown Orlando. The self-guided walk takes you to 20 show-stopping sights around the city that will give you an insight into the historical aspects, open spaces, and future development plans. With its brick-lined streets, municipal buildings and churches dating all the way back to the 1900s, this walk will keep you on your feet taking pictures of all the sights. As you continue your walk, you will come across beautiful parks, a large variety of art museums and galleries, and tempting restaurants that will keep you entertained all day long.

Split Oak Forest

Named after a spectacular 200 year-old live oak tree that has split down the middle and still survived, Split Oak Forest features abundant wildlife, scenic wetland and perfect trails for walking. The park has nearly 2,000 largely undeveloped acres offering wildlife viewing, horseback riding, hiking trails and habitats for animals that thrive and flourish. In addition to the pine flatwoods surrounded by an open canopy forest, Split Oak Forest holds several uncommon plant communities such as oak scrub, sand live oak and scattered long leaf. So why not take a visit and see what you discover?

Tibet-Butler Nature Preserve

Tibet-Butler Nature Preserve is a county park which comes with its own butterfly garden, interpretive trailer and nature centre with educational programs. The park preserves an area of wilderness that is almost uniquely found in the west of Orlando. With its beautiful nature centre and well-kept trails, the park is perfect for families looking to spend time together and learn more about the fascinating natural beauty Orlando has to offer.
