About Altamonte Springs
When Altamonte Springs was incorporated in 1920, its population totaled only 5,000. But, that was before developers turned this erstwhile whistle stop into a thriving suburb. Today, Altamonte Springs, population 42,300, is the hub of shopping and entertainment. Construction of the Altamonte Town Center, a 25-acre district featuring an additional 1 million-plus square feet of restaurants, stores, offices, condominiums and apartments, all linked to nearby neighborhoods via a pedestrian bridge straddling busy S.R. 436, is nearly complete.
This project was designed to shift the focus toward adjacent Crane’s Roost Park and its 40-acre manmade lake which already hosts many community events, such as the City of Altamonte Springs fourth of July celebration, Red Hot, And Boom!
