Oakwater - Visiting the Attractions and Travelling Around
Community / Resort Pool
Tennis / Sports Courts
A small, private gated community of 2 and 3 bedroom condominiums, located south of US192 and built alongside Oakwater lake. For guests staying at Oakwater, there is a clubhouse with concierge and fitness centre, as well as a large lagoon-style communal pool, tennis courts, basketball court and children's play area. For something a little more relaxing, take in the wildlife on the lake side conservation trail.
Being located very close to US192, Oakwater is one of the closest communities to Walt Disney World resort, which means it is ideal if you are looking to visit the attractions in the morning and relax back at your condo or pool in the afternoon.
Head just under 2 miles north towards highway US192 to find the local Formosa Gardens Village shopping complex. Here you will find a supermarket, pharmacy, walk-in medical centre and liquor store, along with a selection of other shops (including an ATM cash machine).
Local to the Formosa Gardens Villas complex are a selection of restaurants and eateries. These include an Outback Steakhouse, Red Lobster, TGI Fridays, Giordano's Italian restaurant, as well as both a Chinese take-away and Japanese sushi bar. For quick snacks, there is also a Subway, Taco Bell and Dairy Queen. Heading further on US192 towards Kissimmee and there will be countless other restaurants for eating out and an almost equal number of themed crazy golf to work off the meal!
