This article is about the stream in Florida; for other uses, see Shingle Creek (disambiguation).

Shingle Creek is a small waterway in central Florida that is generally considered to be the northernmost headwaters of the Everglades watershed. It is named after the cypress trees that lined the bank in the late 19th century, which were used to make wood shingles. The stream and surrounding areas are protected wetlands.[citation needed]

The creek begins in a swamp area in southern Orange County, a few miles east of the International Drive tourist corridor and west of John Young Parkway. From there, it flows south under the Beachline Expressway, Central Florida GreeneWay and Osceola Parkway to Kissimmee in Osceola County, where it turns directly east and flows into Lake Tohopekaliga, then into the Kissimmee River system to south Florida and the Everglades.

Name associations include the Shingle Creek Fishing, Shingle Creek Resort, Shingle Creek Elementary School, and the Shingle Creek Toll Plaza on Osceola Parkway.
