East Orlando Neighborhood History:
This sprawling unincorporated area east of the City of Orlando has been one of the fastest growing bedroom communities in the Orlando metropolitan area.
East Orlando officially got its start with Waterford Lakes. Actually, it began with its predecessor Huckleberry Fields, but the real popularity of the bedroom communities of East Orlando didnâ€™t start in earnest until Waterford Lakes came along. Waterford Lakes in turn spawned Waterford Chase and Waterford Trails. In quick succession, the golf communities of Eastwood and Stoneybrook sprang up. Cypress Springs also got its start around the same time, soon followed by Andover Lakes/Andover Cay, Fieldstream, Cypress Bend, Lake Kehoe Reserve, and smaller subdivisions sprinkled in between.
