Hunter's Creek is a master planned, unincorporated community and census-designated place in Orange County, Florida, United States. It is part of the Orlando–Kissimmee–Sanford, Florida Metropolitan Statistical Area. The population was 14,321 at the 2010 census.[4] It has grown up around a large planned community named Hunter's Creek, though the CDP name given by the United States Census Bureau lacks the apostrophe.


Genstar Development Company based out of Canada owned a massive tract of land in south Orange County Florida totaling up to 3,840 acres. Planning of the upscale community began as early as 1984 with an official kick-off construction announcement in 1986, noting that this was a 15- to 20-year project. Genstar sold much of the remaining development in 1987 for $25,832,000 to American Newland Associates, a California general partnership. August 1997 AG Land Associates, LLC (f/k/a American Newland Associates) sells some of the undeveloped acreages to Westbrook Hunter's Creek, LP for $42,589,200. The majority of the community was built in the late 1980s and 1990s, and some of the community is still under construction.[citation needed]
