History Of Orange Grove Park subdivision

Construction of Orange Grove Park began in June of 1984 by the Anden Group home builders. The site was an orange grove, killed by a freeze earlier, that the Anden Group developed into 200 homes divided into four construction phases.

The model homes were constructed on N Jerico Dr. near Red Bug Lake Rd. that year. The first homes were sold in phase one starting in August 1984. Final construction was finished in 1988.

The subdivision is a deed-restricted community governed by a Board of Directors which enforces the OGPHOA Covenants, By-laws, and Amendments. Please see the Links section below to view the documents. The Board contracts with a Property Management firm to provide bookkeeping and to assist the Board in managing our community. The OGP Neighborhood Watch assists the Sheriff's Office in observing for crime and other issues.

The subdivision is bordered by Red Bug Lake Park, a Seminole County Park. It features a boardwalk to the lake, walking paths, picnic pavillions, barbecue grills, tennis courts, and handball courts. Facility reservations may be made at the Park Ranger Station in the park.

OPG has it's own entrance to the park on Wesson Dr. near the retention pond.


The Board sometimes has jobs, like front-entrance or irrigation-system maintenance, that members, and/or their families, could volunteer to help perform. Your valuable time helps keep the HOA's expenses down. Jobs will be posted in the message area as needed.

In order to volunteer, you must:

1) Email the Community Manager which job that you want to perform and the date and time when you are available. Please include your name, mailing and email addresses.

2) Print out, sign and mail to the Community Manager a "Release Of Liability" form, located in the "Document Links" section below.

3) The Board will then contact you by email.

Hedy Lamarr, a famous actress from the 40's and 50's, was most known for her role as Delilah in "Samson And Delilah". Click link above to jump to her biography. Click Hedy Lamarr Video to watch a fantastic video of her engineering feats, like Wi-Fi and torpedo guidance system. What a lady!

She spent the last year of her life living quietly in a house on Wesson Dr, passing away on January 19, 2000. But, did you know that she was also an inventor during WWII who developed a new torpedo fuse and had a role in the early days of wireless telephony?



Patrolled by the Seminole County Sheriff's Dept. and OGP's Neighborhood Watch members, Orange Grove Park enjoys a very low crime rate. Fire and EMS services are provided by two nearby fire stations. Florida Hospital Altamonte's emergency room is only a few miles north of us.

About OGP's Neighborhood Watch

Orange Grove Park has a Neighborhood Watch that is the eyes and ears of the Seminole County Sheriff's Dept. Our N.W. DOES NOT observe for NOR report violations of OGPHOA Covenants or Amendments.

It's members walk, ride, and observe from their homes and yards, for suspicious behavior or crimes in progress and report them to the Sheriff's Office. The subdivision is patrolled day and night. In addition, members observe for stray dogs, street, sidewalk, and storm drain damage and report them to the appropriate authority. They also participate in crime education for the cummunity.

OGP Neighborhood Watch is sanctioned and advised by the Seminole County Sheriff's Office. It is a member of the National Sheriff's Association (USAonWatch.org), which is part of the U.S. Department of Justice.

OGP N.W. is led by a Coordinator and three Block Captains. We presently have 20 members. If you wish to join or want information, please click Coordinator to email him.

At the present time, OGP enjoys the lowest crime rate on Red Bug Lake Rd. from S.R. 436 to Aloma Ave.

By-Laws, Covenants, & Amendments Broken Links

The Board recently submitted updated OGPHOA By-Laws and Covenants to the Seminole County Clerk's Office.  As a consequence, the old links to these documents were changed by County rendering the existing links on this site unusable.  Unfortunately, during the upload by the Clerk's Office, most of the links were found to be broken.  Only the By-Laws and Amendment One links are working.

Ms. Jessica Speak, our Community Manager, has a plan to upload all of the By-Laws, Covenants, and Amendments to the Fl. Rents website as one PDF document.  As soon as she emails me the new link, I will update this website and post an announcement.  She will also inform the County about their broken links.  If you need a copy of these documents, please email Ms. Speak.

We apologize for any inconvenience.
