Effective Wednesday, November 9, Green PLACE properties will be CLOSED temporarily as a precaution for potential storm impacts and will reopen once it is safe to do so.

Hidden Pond Preserve is CLOSED until further notice due to construction of an observation pier that will enhance the user experience for this Green PLACE property. When construction is completed, the property will reopen for nature-based recreational activities.

The Hidden Pond Preserve is located in east Orange County off of SR 520 and is managed by Orange County Environmental Protection Division. Hidden Pond provides a unique opportunity for viewing Florida’s marvelous native flora and fauna. Visitors may hike among mesic flatwoods and basin swamps, before stopping at a scenic picnic area with a view of the pond for which the preserve is named. Hikers have the chance to observe a plethora of wildflowers, butterflies, deer, and birds while appreciating ongoing conservation and restoration efforts.

Amenities include picnic areas, benches, a parking lot, informational kiosks, and marked trails of varying difficulty. Future plans for the preserve include educational signage and an observation pier.
