Audubon Park Community

Driving through the Audubon Park Garden District of Central Florida, an eclectic collection of shops stretches down Corrine Drive. If you pass through on a weekend or Monday night, you’ll likely catch community events, street parties, or the weekly Audubon Park Community Market. Voted “Best Of” in several categories of Orlando Weekly’s 2012 poll, Audubon Park is truly an engaged and lively location. As a community food hub, East End Market provides a nurturing place for this nifty neighborhood by creating a gathering place from a what was once a church.

Although the area was first developed for citrus production, it later became home to Central Florida’s first commercial airport in 1928. For some time, the United States Army Air Corps controlled the airport after 1940. Now, the district is full of independently owned businesses, and is bringing our local food industry into focus.

Including East End Market’s own market garden, the community is bordered by some incredible green spaces, including the Audubon Park Community Garden, Leu Gardens (which boasts fifty acres of display gardens & Florida’s largest rose garden), and Blue Jacket Park. To explore the area more, check out the community’s event calendar and business listing.
