Lakeland is the largest city along Interstate 4 between Tampa and Orlando.  Fittingly, the dominant feature in Lakeland is the city’s many lakes, including 38 that are named and many others that are not. The centerpiece is Lake Hollingsworth, the city’s largest lake, surround by a 2.85-mile multi-use trail. The lake’s central location and picturesque atmosphere results in it being used by over 2,000 people a day. Water fountains are frequently located along the city’s 20+ miles of pedestrian networks along with community restrooms.
