Azalea Park is located just east of downtown Orlando along Highway 408. It stretches from Highway 50 to the north; south to Highway 552 and from Highway 551 to N. Semoran Boulevard. Annexed in 1954, Azalea Park is home to about 13,000 residents and even though it is not all in Orlando it is part of the unincorporated Orange County area and the Orlando-Kissimmee-Sanford Metropolitan area.
It is one of the more affordable communities in and around the Orlando area but has gotten a bad rap over the last 20 years that residents have been trying to reverse ever since. Today, the community is considered a safe area except for some spots along Semoran Blvd, the community’s westernmost border.
Utilities are provided by Orlando Utilities Commission on the Northwest side of the community. Other utilities include Florida Power & Light or Progress Energy Inc.
