One of the more popular attraction areas in Altamonte Springs is the recently completed and redeveloped district called Uptown Altamonte. Uptown Altamonte is located next to the Altamonte Mall and provides the community with an abundance of shopping, restaurants, housing and outdoor activities. An integral part of the allure of Uptown Altamonte is a thiry seven acre lakeside park called Cranes Roost. Cranes Roost Park features a number of covered pavillions, cobblestone streets, a lighted boardwalk, a 900 seat Eddie Rose Ampitheater, and a floating stage; making it the perfect backdrop for events such as art shows and concerts which take place there throughout the year.
