Restaurant

“A fancy restaurant serving American food… with a twist. The Ospery Tavern is a treat for the tastebuds and the eyes. The design of this modern American spot leaves you feeling luxurious but cozy, with camel colored leather seating, a long marble bar, reclaimed-wood walls and brass detailing characterizing the space. The menu then wows the palate with dishes like pork chops in a whiskey glaze, oak charred shrimp and a very good whole grilled branzino. Come here with a group so you can order even more without feeling too guilty.”

Park
“The 2.5 mile paved loop trail that encircles Lake Baldwin provides walkers and cyclists a view of shimmering waters and urban Orlando. Most of this path lies within Orlando's boundaries, while the section through shady Lake Baldwin Park belongs to Winter Park and provides trail users respite from the sun. The park also makes a good stop for water, restrooms, and a large lakefront dog park. The remaining trail is sunny and easygoing, with only minor turns and elevations changes. Leashed dogs are allowed on this path.”
