Getting to Know Lakeland

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 that was completed in 1978. The lake’s central location and picturesque atmosphere result in it being used by over 2,000 people a day.

In 2017, Map My Run rated Lake Hollingsworth as the 20th most popular running route in the USA. Pretty impressive when compared to places like Central Park in New York City, Prospect Park in Brooklyn, and Memorial Park in Houston.
