Geography[edit]

Wedgefield is located at 28°29′6″N 81°4′52″W / 28.48500°N 81.08111°W / 28.48500; -81.08111 (28.484930, -81.081109)[4].

According to the United States Census Bureau, the CDP has a total area of 60.9 km² (23.5 mi²). 60.7 km² (23.4 mi²) of it is land and 0.2 km² (0.1 mi²) of it (0.34%) is water.

Wedgefield is bounded by SR 520 and SR 528 (Beachline Expressway), in a corner such that the two roads make a wedge shape where they meet. The other major road is Dallas Boulevard, formerly SR 13, which used to link to East Colonial Drive but has not for decades since a portion north of Wedgefield was demolished and sodded over.[citation needed] Dallas Boulevard only links directly to the Beachline (Exit 28), where only eastbound traffic can exit onto Dallas and traffic on Dallas can only enter the Beachline westbound. Traffic seeking to get onto the Beachline eastbound, SR 520 or SR 50 must take a series of side roads onto SR 520.

Most of the land in Wedgefield is divided into lots of 1-acre (4,000 m2) or larger, but the majority of houses in the subdivision are situated on lots of 1 acre or less.
