Although the Four Corners area is termed a quadripoint, an analysis of the official borders shows that what is called a quadripoint is actually two sets of tripoints. Lake County, Orange County and Osceola County share a border near the westbound lane of the Space Coast Parkway. Lake County, Polk County and Osceola County share a border just south of the eastbound lane of the Space Coast Parkway. Polk County, Florida and Orange County, Florida do not actually border each other but are located approximately 60 feet apart.
