Ocoee, Orlando, FL
Ocoee, Orlando is a town in Orange County, Florida. It was one of the first areas to be developed outside of Orlando’s city limits. Ocoee is home to much unique business and residential developments, including The Villages at Ocoee, which has won numerous awards for design excellence and sustainable development. Ocoee is also home to Winter Park High School, which educates over 2200 students every year on their campus with an athletic complex that includes facilities for football and soccer teams and an Olympic-sized pool. Finally, it’s worth mentioning that Money Magazine ranked Ocoee in 2006 as number 7 out of 100 places to live nationwide based on factors such as cost of living, crime rates, lifestyle quality, and access to good education.
In the 1920s, the development of Washington Park gave Ocoee its first commercial businesses: a hotel, service station, general store, and a dance hall that drew many from East Orlando. In 1950, Ocoee was still an unincorporated area of Orange County and had fewer than 1,000 people. However, the population exploded in the 1960s when major road construction began on West Colonial Drive (also U.S. Highway 441). By 1970, Ocoee’s population had grown to over 10,000 residents. The area was still increasing until around 1990 when growth started shifting to other locations in Central Florida. Today, Ocoee has a population of 35,209 (2003)
The city is home to several parks with amenities that include outdoor basketball courts, roller hockey rink, volleyball court, and playgrounds. The most famous park is Jim Carr Park which boasts an Olympic-sized swimming pool that has recently undergone renovations, a full basketball court, and an extensive fishing pier. Ocoee is also home to several private schools, including First Academy, Braddock Road Christian School, Ocoee Montessori School, West Oaks Academy, and Faith Christian School. The town of Ocoee is served by the Ocoee Public Library, which was founded in 1973 and had its main branch and administrative office at 4880 New Broad Street, near Jim Carr Park. Ocoee is home to two minor league sports teams: The Orlando Rays baseball team and the Florida Firecats arena football team. The flagship radio station of the Orlando Rays is WMOP.
Finally, Ocoee’s central shopping district is located along West State Road 434 (Aloma Ave) and includes several shops, malls, and supermarkets, including Target, Lowe’s, Walgreens, Walmart Supercenter, and Winn Dixie. The City of Ocoee has its police department and provides primary and secondary law enforcement for city residents. The Ocoee Police Department also helps patrol neighboring unincorporated areas of Orange County, such as Winter Garden Village and Windermere Town, which do not have their police departments. The Ocoee Fire Control is a division of the Orange County Fire Rescue Department (OCFRD). The Ocoee Fire Control protects more than 91,500 residents covering approximately a fleet of six trucks and two fireboats.
Ocoee is currently served by four stations: Station 51 (Thomas Court), Station 53 (Lakeview Road), Station 55 (Meadowridge), and Station 57 (Bassville Park).
The City of Ocoee operates its water system, which has been in operation since 1923. Today, the system provides drinking water to more than 35,000 residents within city limits. Finally, Ocoee’s main wastewater treatment facility is operated by Orange County Utilities and serves over 30,000 residents. All wastewater from the Ocoee area flows to this facility for treatment before being discharged into nearby Lake Butter (this process allows us to use reclaimed water and keep our lakes clean).
