The Frances Langford Promenade (also known as the Lake Mirror Promenade) is a historic site in Lakeland, Florida. It is located between Lemon Street and Lake Mirror Drive. On January 27, 1983, it was added to the US National Register of Historic Places. The project was built in two phases and completed in 1928. Charles Leavitt of New York was the designer. In 1946, the City of Lakeland dedicated the promenade to Lakeland native Frances Langford for her entertainment career that was escalated through her work with the USO during WWII. In 2013, the City re-dedicated the promenade and installed a new historic marker.
The City of Lakeland was incorporated in January 1885 and has grown to become one of the largest inland communities in Florida. With a current population of over 100,000, Lakeland continues to grow. It has been designated a Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area by the US Census Bureau for over 30 years. With tourist attractions and gulf beaches only an hour away, Lakeland continues to capitalize on its ideal central Florida location along the I-4 corridor. The City owns and operates Lakeland Electric, the third-largest publicly owned utility in Florida and it was one of the first to offer power in the Sunshine State over 110 years ago.
