The Lakes in Lakeland Florida

Welcome to the Lakes in Lakeland Florida page for LakelandLuxuryHomes.com . Below is a brief summary of each of the lakes in the city. Below this information is a list of the lakefront homes for sale in the city of Lakeland Florida.

Banana Lake

Banana Lake (formerly Mud Lake) is located in SE Lakeland Florida. This is a fairly shallow lake with an average depth of only 4 feet. I believe the deepest part is actually 7 feet. The surface area is around 268 acres or about 1/3 of a square mile.

Bonny Lake

Bonny Lake is located east of downtown Lakeland Fl and south of Lake Parker. The lake has a surface area of 249 acres and an average depth of just 3 feet. The maximum recorded depth is 11 feet. The lake is most well known for the Lake Bonny Park and The Lake to Lake Trail.

Christina Lake

Christina Lake is also known as Christina Pit. It was originally an excavated mine which was landscaped into a lake instead of an eyesore. This is a small lake with only 27 acres of surface area. There are no public boat ramps or swimming areas. 

Crystal Lake

Crystal Lake is a common lake name here in Polk County. There are 7 lakes sharing the name but only 1 in Lakeland. The lake has an average depth of 7 feet, max depth of about 17 feet and a surface area of around 26 acres. There is a boat ramp and pier at Crystal Lake Park. You can also fish from shore.

Kelly Lake

Kelly Lake should probably be just a pond. This is a small lake between the Villas by the Lake and the Polk Parkway Toll Road (the 570). The lake has a surface area of a little under 7 acres and is about 1/4 of a mile east to west and 250 ft north to south.

Lake Canyon

Lake Canyon is a horseshoe shaped lake surrounded by homes. It is located in south Lakeland on the south side of the 570 aka Polk Parkway Toll Road. The lake has a surface area of 10.5 acres and 48 lakefront homes along the lake shore.

Lake Gibson

Lake Gibson is a legitimate lake. Lake Gibson has a surface area of 483 acres and an average depth of 7 feet. It's deepest water is supposed to be 20 feet making it deeper than most lakes in the city. Lake Gibson is located due north of downtown Lakeland and north of Interstate 4. The Lake is most well known as a seaplane base having a 7000 ft runway.

Lake Hancock

Lake Hancock is located in SE Lakeland Fl near Bartow Fl. This is an important lake and may never have a great deal of development around it. It is also one of the largest lakes in Polk County having 4,573 acres of surface area. That is a big lake. More on its size, the lake has an average depth of 4 feet and contains over 5 billion gallons. 

Lake Hollingsworth

No doubt the most famous lake in Lakeland Florida. Named after the person who is credited for settling Lakeland long ago this is a large and beautiful lake. The lake supposedly has only 350 acres of surface area but it seems much larger. You can walk, jog or ride around the lake on the Lake to Lake Trail. There is much more to see and if/when you visit the area I trust you will give it a drive by. There are some beautiful homes there as well.

Lake Horny

Julius Teague Horny is who the lake is named after. Mr Horny helped develop Lakeland in the 1920's and I guess he left his mark in more ways than one. The lake is rather small having a surface area of only 7 acres and a depth averaging about 4 feet. Lakeland Senior High School is just off the northern shore.

Lake Hunter

Lake Hunter is located in WSW Lakeland on the west side of Dixieland. This lake is 3,250 feet long and 2,070 feet wide. It has an estimated surface area of 93 acres and max depth of just under 9 feet. The lake is large enough to provide some beautiful views and yes, there are some homes taking advantage of the beautiful shoreline. There is a public boat ramp on the northern end. Be careful it is easy to miss when you are driving by.

Lake Mirror

Definitely the most photographed area in all of Lakeland Florida. If the lake could take a selfie it probably would. That is my drone photo at the top of the page. The lake is encompassed by a walking path, little park areas and government buildings. It's really nice you should visit it and grab a bite to eat there as well.

Lake Morton

Lake Morton is just south of Lake Mirror and borders the downtown area of Lakeland. The lake does not get the fanfare of Lake Mirror although it is shaped similar. Unfortunately it is missing the trails and parks etc. Still some lake view homes enjoy it every day. The lake has a surface area of around 1/2 of a square mile'ish.

Lake Parker

Lake Parker is the largest lake most people associate with Lakeland. The lake has a surface area of about 2,200 acres and a maximum depth of around 20 feet. This is the lake in NE Lakeland that has the large power plant on the northern shore. There are two boat ramps on this lake. One at Sertoma Park and one on the eastern bank where Tanglewood Street intersects with East Lake Parker Dr if it is still open.

Lake Wire

Finally Lake Wire is on the NW side of downtown Lakeland just west of North Florida Ave and the Lawton Chiles Middle Academy. The lake has an average depth of just over 10 feet. The alleged maximum dept is 22 feet. The surface area a mere 22.17 acres. Beautiful, dark but small. There are no public boat ramps or beaches just a sidewalk all of the way around the lake. You can however fish in the lake during daylight hours.
