Living in Orlando
This city may be small in size, but it’s big in many ways: location, natural attractions, economic growth, and more. Tucked away in the lush, serene landscape of southern Lake County, Groveland is adjacent to the communities of Mascotte, Clermont, and Minneola, and is just over half an hour west of downtown Orlando.
More and more people have been making the move to Groveland in recent years and its population has tripled in the last two decades. It’s easy to see why folks want to call this their new hometown:
- The setting is unbeatable.
Groveland is all green, rolling hills, deep groves, and lakes. The pace is slower here, the air fresher, and the days quieter. Despite the recent influx of new residents, the city remains a small town kind of place with plenty of open spaces such as Lake David Park and J.T. Memorial Park.
The sunny Central Florida climate makes exploring the outdoors easier. Groveland enjoys average temperatures in the high 50s in the colder months and over 230 sunny days a year.
All this while being strategically located where State Road 50 merges with State Roads 19 and 33 and it’s really no surprise why the city keeps on growing.
- It’s business and family friendly.
Groveland placed 5th in safechoicesecurity.com’s 2014 list of 20
Safest Cities in Florida. The city made families “feel confident in letting their children play” and Groveland also won praise for offering the kind of safety “only a small town can.”
Private-public partnerships under the Groveland Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) allow for more businesses and services, enhancing the growth of the downtown area, and promoting entrepreneurship.
- First-rate educational options abound.
Groveland is served by the Lake County Schools district and has three elementary schools, two middle schools, and one high school. As for private school options, these include Montverde Academy, First Christian Church School, and Forest Lake Academy.
Options for higher education include Lake-Sumter State College and the University of Central Florida.
