Oakglen Estates is small community of homes on the Southeast side of Lake Apopka. It is a non-gated community located just South of Gator Island and just North of Newton Park.
Oakglen Estates has 3 separate entrances. One of the entrances is inside of Covington Chase and joins the communities. The two other entrances are on East Crest Avenue and East Division Street. Both of these two entrances are easily noticed due to their beautiful entrance signs. Both entrances have large redbrick signs which are black with gold lettering. The community is a smaller one consisting of only 60 houses. The homes vary in size anywhere from 1,858 to 3,062 sf. of living area.
This subdivision was mostly built between 2005 and 2007. The homes and community are clean and attractive looking as great as the entrances do. There are 2 large ponds here and quite a few trees. However there is no community swimming pool or children’s playground. If you are not from the area Newton Park is located only ½ of a mile to the South. It's on the Eastern shore of beautiful Lake Apopka and has a children's playground, beautiful shade trees, nice boat ramp, Farnsworth Community Pool, a fishing pier and picnic tables that have a very large covering to get out of the summer sun.
Many people fall in love with living near large bodies of water like Lake Apopka. Oakglen Estates is not only close to the lake but also very close to Chapin Station and the West Orange Trail. At Chapin Station there is a huge children's playground, tennis courts, basketball court, picnic area and of course the West orange Trail. Best of all it is very shaded and most of it is out of the sun. This is a great place to take children or special people in your life. Oakglen Estates is a great community with very nice homes.
