The Next Great Orlando Community

A Vibrant Story: Senator Walter W. Rose

Rosemont is part of a local legacy that connects to College Park and other idyllic neighborhoods that comprise Orlando's vibrant tapestry, inspiring the promise of tomorrow.

Senator Rose moved to Florida in 1909 and settled within the Orlando community he would later plat, naming streets after colleges-the hallmark of College Park-donating land for what is now Dickson Azalea Park, and creating the Rose Isle, Orwin Manor, and Rosemere neighborhoods. Rosemere is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Among his prized land holdings, Senator Rose also owned a natural enclave filled with pastures, citrus groves, wetlands, and a sprawling lake as its centerpiece. Over time, the enclave would be named Rosemont in his honor.

As one of Orlando's first influencers, Walter W. Rose was a true visionary, community advocate, and respected businessman. As a member of the Florida Senate and President of the National Association of Realtors®, Senator Rose championed equitable tax reforms in Florida real estate. His legislative achievements and integrity earned the respect and attention of the Orlando Sentinel-Star editorial team who encouraged Senator Rose to run for Governor, which he ultimately declined.
