Union Park is about a 5-10 min drive to University of Central Florida. The area is fairly nice and is not as packed as the west side of the city is. Prices of living may be a little more as rent is about $200-$300 more depending on the housing complex you choose. Overall the city of union park is peaceful, not as crowded and has a very laid back environment away from usual city distractions. There are tons of grade schools and walk in clinics, the nearest hospital is the Oviedo medical center which is about a 7 min drive. The city has about 3 Walmarts, 2 Publix's and countless other groceries stores for your shopping convenience.

Union Park is a small community in Orange County, Florida. My parents say that people who live in Union Park don't even realize it because it's so small. I playfully tell my friends that it is a "nice ghetto". When you drive through Union Park, it feels old, and it feels like only a handful of people are maintaining it. I like it because I grew up there, and it's definitely an interesting place to be. However, I would never go out at night in Union Park. Even though I'm almost eighteen, I'm not allowed to go outside if my parents aren't home, and honestly, I'm okay with that. There are nice elderly people around sometimes, but the majority of the people in Union Park have probably been to jail.
This place is okay. A lot of lower middle class families who have roots here. Things are convenient to get to, and there's not much crime. I wish prices were lower though, and that construction would be done already.
