Swannanoa / Glen Echo Neighborhood
Neighborhoods are an integral part of the City. Maintaining and enhancing these neighborhoods are critical to the long-term vitality and success of Lakeland and the quality of life of our residents. The City of Lakeland has identified approximately 100 neighborhoods. Of those, we have 15 registered neighborhood associations who also help make up the membership of our neighborhood association coalition, which serves as an umbrella organization and work very closely with City staff.
Today we will spotlight the Swannanoa / Glen Echo Neighborhood. This neighborhood is located west of Joker Merchant Stadium and north of Watson Clinic. It has been organized for 18 years from a simple vision of some of its residents.
The support and partnerships this neighborhood has built are cherished by some of its leaders.
Miami Park has become the gathering place for neighborhood events. It sits between Miami and Oconee Streets.
The City of Lakeland appreciates the involvement of this neighborhood and we will continue to support their improvement efforts.
Organizing a neighborhood association can be very rewarding. If you are interested in becoming a registered neighborhood association, please contact the neighborhood outreach office at 863-834-6011.
