The agricultural roots of the town of Oviedo and the Lake Charm area go back to the time when orange groves covered the land. As late as the 1950s, nearly a million crates of celery and a third of a million crates of citrus were being shipped from Oviedo each year. The selection in the mid 1960s of a site just south of Oviedo for a major institution of higher education — today’s University of Central Florida (UCF) — marked a turning point in growth for the area. The growth and maturation of UCF have enriched the community of Oviedo in terms of economy, education, recreation, and culture. Modern Oviedo offers a pleasing mix of well-kept older homes and vibrant new developments like Seminole Woods. Residents still enjoy the close-knit atmosphere of a small town, utilizing local tennis courts or strolling along the walking trails at Round Lake Park. Well-managed local parks provide sports fields, playgrounds, game areas, picnic pavilions, swimming pools, and tennis or racquetball courts. The close proximity of lakes and rivers ensure abundant opportunities for water-related recreation.
