Odessa, Florida Real Estate and Community Info.

Odessa, Florida is a small, but rapidly expanding suburb of Tampa that is located almost evenly in between Pasco and Hillsborough Counties. Odessa is one of the older communities in the Tampa area, as it was founded in the late 19th century, but has shown tremendous population growth in thfe last 10 years, more than tripling from 3,100 residents to over 10,000. Odessa enjoys a cost of living that is almost 4% less than the rest of the country and a slightly above average median household income. Along with maintaining a solid real estate market and local economy, Odessa is a short commute from the larger Tampa area and provides residents with many of its own recreational activities. Once you add all that up, you can easily see why Odessa is an ideal community to purchase real estate and raise a family.

Outdoor Recreation

Golfers have two different golf clubs to choose from in Odessa when they want to hit the links. One is the Silver Dollar Golf Club, a public facility with three separate 9-hole courses; the other is a semi-private course, The Eagles Golf Club, which features two distinct 18-hole championship courses. These clubs also have practice ranges and other alluring amenities such as swimming pools, children’s playgrounds and restaurants. With a total of five golf courses and a healthy serving of high-quality add-ons, these clubs give Odessa golfers all they can handle.

The entire family will enjoy Odessa’s natural outdoor parks, both of which cover acres of land and feature everything from biking trails to softball fields. Odessa Neighborhood Park can be found on the Pasco County side and not only provides 29 acres of space for residents to roam, but also tennis and basketball courts, a playground and a community center. On the other side of town is Lake Rogers Park, which presents beautiful views of wild animal and plant life, as well as trails that wind around freshwater lakes and through thick pinewood forests. After working up an appetite on the trails, there are outdoor barbeque grills and picnic tables just waiting for hungry hikers to cook up some juicy hamburger patties and hot dog links with friends.
