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.

I like how calm the neighborhood is and the people around here are very nice. I also love how I am around by a lot of shopping areas and different kinds of stores. However, the way people drive in this area is very crazy so I wish there were more police officers observing the traffic and some areas need more traffic lights such as my area. I live on rouse road and it is hard to get out of my neighborhood. That is my only problem with the neighborhood.
If you like living in a 'college town', this is a great place. Rentals are fairly priced, considering the college is right here. There are many things to do, and places to eat. There are many opportunities- especially if you are a student of UCF. If you are indeed a student of UCF, go to the career services, and you will find many many more opportunities, that you may not have thought of before.
