About Lakeland, Florida

Lakeland, Florida

Lakeland, nestled in Central Florida along Interstate 4 between Tampa and Orlando, stands as the vibrant heart of Polk County. With a population of 112,641 as of the 2020 U.S. Census Bureau release, it’s the most populous city and serves as the county seat.

As a principal city of the Lakeland–Winter Haven Metropolitan Statistical Area, Lakeland boasts a rich history and diverse culture. Locals affectionately refer to it as the “Swan City,” owing to its abundant population of swans, descendants of two mute swans gifted by Queen Elizabeth II in 1957. Notably, Lakeland holds the distinction of being the birthplace of Publix, a beloved supermarket chain.

The city’s roots date back to the 1870s, drawing European-American settlers from various states. Its growth accelerated in the 1880s with the introduction of rail service, attracting freedmen railway workers in 1883. Today, Lakeland thrives with opportunities in agriculture, citrus farming, cattle ranching, and phosphate industries. The city is also home to the picturesque 1,267-acre Circle B Bar Reserve, a haven for nature enthusiasts and wildlife alike.

Lakeland, situated in the Central Florida Highlands area of the Atlantic coastal plain, boasts a diverse landscape characterized by flatlands interspersed with gently rolling hills. Covering an area of 67 square miles, the city’s geography includes 38 named lakes, with Lake Parker being the largest at 2,550 acres. These lakes, including Lake Hollingsworth, Lake Morton, Lake Mirror, and Lake Gibson, serve as iconic landmarks and reference points for locals.

Lakeland experiences a humid subtropical climate, typical of most regions in Florida. Summers are hot and humid, with temperatures often exceeding 90°F during the day and rarely dropping below 70°F at night. Afternoon thunderstorms are common during the summer months.

Winters are milder, characterized by dry and warm conditions with highs in the mid-70s and lows in the 50s. Cold snaps occasionally occur, resulting in temperatures below freezing, typically twice a year on average.
