About Bay Hill, Orlando, FL
Bayhill is a neighborhood in Orlando, Florida. It was initially a rural area, but it has been built up with housing and commercial developments. In the year 2000, Bayhill had about 85 homes and an estimated population of 1,700 people. It also had two major shopping centers: The Marketplace at BayHill and The Pointe at BayHill Shopping Center, which opened in 2008.
The Pointe Shopping Center features Target, PetSmart, Pier One Imports, and Marshalls, and restaurants such as Red Lobster and Fatburger/Pizza Hut Express. Several offices for professional services include dentists’ offices (Dr. Tina’s Dental Care), doctors’ offices (Medical Arts Physicians Group), and a physical therapy office. The neighborhood library, Bay Hill Library, is located on the shopping center property and offers free WiFi access.
The new high school in the area is Timber Creek High School which opened in August 2009. Nearby private schools include the First Academy of Ocala and Montverde Academy. It is also a short drive to Rollins College in Winter Park and Eustis, both state universities. In the future, a 17-acre portion of BayHill will be used to build a major medical center for Orlando Health on McCulloch Road in a project that is expected to cost over $75 million. The hospital will have 120 beds initially but could expand up to five stories with a capacity of over 500 beds in the future.
The schools here are relatively new and have met with tremendous success. The neighborhood is clean, safe, and fun for families with kids of all ages. In addition, supermarkets, restaurants, and businesses are conveniently located close by or just a short drive away. Bayhill seems to be a melting pot for diverse age groups, from young children attending one of the four elementary schools in the area to college students at Rollins College just minutes away from BayHill, who reside there during their studies.
