Orange County Government, Florida

Town of Oakland

A District 1 Community

Overview

This gem of a town is surrounded by enormous moss-draped oak trees and is located on the southern shores of Lake Apopka. Incorporated in 1887, Oakland now has about 2,200 residents within its quiet, serene country atmosphere.

Oakland is also home to the West Orange Trailhead and the Oakland Nature Preserve. The trailhead brings thousands of recreation seekers to the area annually, and the preserve provides them with the pristine beauty of Florida’s flora and fauna.

A 700-student charter elementary school is Oakland’s most recent achievement, affording area residents with a choice in their children’s education.
