We are the Tuscawilla Homeowners Association, Inc, a voluntary organization representing the interests of 4600 families, comprising over 11,000 residents. Our development is one of the largest and oldest Planned Unit Developments in Seminole County representing a third of the population of our host municipality, the City of Winter Springs.
The Tuscawilla community originated in 1969 and has steadily expanded to its present fully built size and population. More than twenty-eight separate subdivisions, each with its own homeowner's association and unique amenities and lifestyle, comprise the Tuscawilla Country Club Community. Most of these associations are mandatory, with fees assessed to handle a variety of maintenance and services designed to provide amenities and retain real estate values.
Tuscawilla also includes a number of units that do not have a mandatory homeowners association.
Since the incorporation of the Tuscawilla Homeowners Association in 1977, we have worked to maintain and improve our 3500 acre community to make it the best of its kind in Central Florida. This has frequently required active negotiation with government and other entities whose activities potentially impact our families and real estate values.
Tuscawilla Homeowners Association, in the interest of maintaining a well-informed and active community, publishes a monthly magazine entitled TUSCAWILLA TODAY for its membership. Community issues are discussed in detail, and community groups have the opportunity to report on and promote their wide range of activities.
The Association also maintains a committee structure which monitors and supports such important functions as education, community activities and other areas of major community interest.
Tuscawilla is a diverse and family-friendly community. A full-service country club, including an 18-hole golf course, tennis courts, pool, dining facilities, pro shops, a large clubhouse and other amenities, is located in the heart of Tuscawilla, convenient to each of our subdivisions. Several forms of membership are available to Tuscawilla residents, ranging from golf and tennis to social. Club membership, while an attractive feature, is not required as part of moving into our community.
Tuscawilla has top-quality parks and recreational facilities.
Trotwood Park is a large park equipped with tennis, basketball and racquetball courts. There are also softball and soccer fields available. In addition to its two playgrounds, it has pavilions with restrooms, and a Splash Playground (available for a small fee).
Sam Smith Memorial Park has two playgrounds and a walking area, a beautiful pond, in addition to two pavilions equipped with picnic tables and barbeque grills.
Bear Creek Nature Trail is a beautiful nature trail that parallels Bear Creek subdivision.
The very popular Cross Seminole Trail runs through parts of Tuscawilla. The Cross Seminole Trail is a great place to enjoying birding, biking, running, walking and many other outdoor activities.
Downtown Orlando is twenty convenient minutes away by the Greeneway (State Route 417), a high-speed toll road with entrances adjacent to Tuscawilla. An optional automated EPASS system on local toll roads makes stopping at toll booths a thing of the past. The road network also brings Tuscawilla closer to the new state of the art Amway Arena which hosts sporting events, concerts and family shows, ranging from our Orlando MAGIC NBA basketball team to the PREDATORS indoor arena football team; concerts, symphony orchestra, civic theater, ballet concerts, and other cultural performances.
Orlando and other nearby communities host a Science Center, a range of museums and the well-known Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, Sea World and a full range of other attractions.
Our Tuscawilla community benefits from the excellence of Seminole County's school system, widely acclaimed as one of the best in the State of Florida.
Rainbow, Keeth and Lawton Elementary are the 3 elementary schools that serve the Tuscawilla area. Indian Trails Middle School, Winter Springs High School and Oviedo High School serve our secondary school students. Many children walk or ride their bikes to school.
The University of Central Florida is less than 13 miles from most Tuscawilla Subdivisions. UCF is one of the most dynamic universities in the country offering over 200 majors and currently is the second largest university in the country. From Liberal Arts, Business Administration, Medicine and Nursing, Engineering, Science, Education and many more to choose from, UCF has become a leader in academics.
Seminole State College, also nearby, offers five Bachelors degrees as well as numerous AA & AS degrees, career certificates, and continuing education. SSC boasts significantly lower tuition and has four campuses in Seminole County.
The City of Winter Springs, governed by a mayor/commission form of government, boasts the second lowest residential property tax rate in Seminole County. Winter Springs is an expanding, forward-looking community simultaneously involved in the planned development of the largest Town Center of its kind in Seminole County, and the renewal of older infrastructure and neighborhoods on the western side of the City. All development is subject to careful scrutiny to ensure the city's long-term viability. An excellent police department and the Seminole County fire/rescue department provide a high level of public safety reflected in low crime statistics and fast response to fire and medical emergencies.
Tuscawilla is a well-located community that manifests pride in its appearance, a determination to preserve and enhance its value and heritage, and fosters an active vision for the future in an area that continues to grow and prosper. We are the Tuscawilla Homeowners Association, and we are proud of what we do to keep our large and diverse community the best and safest of its kind.
