● Riverside Park – This amazing park features everything from a swimming pool to lighted tennis courts to a skate park.
● Shane Kelly Park – This park has ample parking, three lighted soccer fields and a great playground structure for the kids.

One of the unique things we love seeing in Oviedo are the Oviedo Chickens. Emblazoned on mugs, t-shirts and other souvenir items, Oviedo’s famous chickens are frequently seen roaming the downtown area. The City of Oviedo is actually a protected bird sanctuary to ensure these chickens remain in good shape and add to the charm of the city. Don’t worry, “We Brake for Oviedo’s Chickens”. Of course, spotting the wild peacocks also known to roam downtown Oviedo should not be overshadowed by the chickens.
Students in Oviedo attend the Seminole County Public Schools which educates over 66,000 students in the county. Within Oviedo though, there are:

Oviedo hosts an annual festival every October called The Rising which allows the entire town to partake in a nighttime 5K race through the city’s historic areas.
