Lake Nona at a Glance
Planned initially as a mixed-use, life-sciences and medical community, the area is now a haven for beautiful housing subdivisions, golf communities, and an array of shopping, recreation and dining options that rival those of its densely packed neighbors throughout Orlando. Laka Nona Medical City, as it is often called, is home to the University of Central Florida College of Medicine (and planned Colleges of Nursing and Dental Medicine), the Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute, the Orlando VA Medical Center, Nemours Children’s Hospital and various other biomedical research and education centers.
In recent years, the area has boomed – both in development and population – growing from just 1,500 people in the year 2000 to a projected 75,000 to 100,000 people by 2020.

Lake Nona is recognized as a “gigabit community,” thanks to its Internet connection speeds that exceed the U.S. average 200 times over. It’s also the first of only nine Cisco Smart + Connected communities in the nation. This access to cutting edge communications makes Lake Nona a hot spot – not just for residents, but businesses and startups as well.
Residents have come to cherish the active sense of community here, among its charming, tree-lined streets, and ample parks. Here, you’ll find a vibrant mix of art, culture, music, and community events – like its nighttime market every Thursday, second Tuesday and fourth Saturday at the Lake Nona Town Center. Oh, and we can’t forget the over 44 miles of lush hiking trails. In fact, 40 percent of the area is reserved exclusively for greenspace. You won’t find that in the crowded city-center – though here you will find all of its amenities and more.
