Village Walk is a planned gated community in the Lake Nona area of southeast Orlando, Florida. It lives up to its name as a walking community with 6 miles of walkways, trails and footbridges over numerous ponds of water throughout. All the trails and walkways, which are even lit at night, lead to the staffed community center, which has a swimming pool, a playground, tennis courts, basketball courts, a fully equipped fitness center, library, restaurant, and a gas station. Membership in the homeowner’s association includes internet access, cable television and alarm security and monitoring. The gateway is guarded 24/7 by security, making Village Walk the safest, most secure neighborhood in all the Lake Nona Area.
The community has almost immediate access to Central Florida Greenway (hwy 417), this has access to the Orlando International Airport in mere minutes. There is much ongoing development happening all around the area, such as the new Lake Nona Medical City, with its medical services (including a new children’s hospital and VA medical center), new educational institutions and new research facilities, as well as new business and shopping malls being constructed all around. For recreation, there are two major golf courses near the community, as well as numerous lakes and conservation areas. Again its quick access to the Greenway makes it close many Orlando attractions and a thirty minute drive to the Atlantic Coast.
The area surrounding Village Walk also has a collection of lakes such as Lake Nona, Lake Hart and Lake Mary Jane which all offer boating activities and some of the finest freshwater fishing in Florida. Natural conservation areas such as Moss Park, Split Oak Forest and the Isle of Pines preserve also offer trails, picnicking and camping experiences for those that love the out of doors.

Homes are made in the Mediterranean style, with barrel style terracotta tile roofs, at a price range of roughly $230 000 to $550 000.
