Known for its beautiful lakefront properties, the city of Lakeland, Tennessee, reflects a rural atmosphere while accommodating vibrant growth. Lakeland offers a variety of real estate for its future and current residents, such as lakefront properties and single and multi-family homes. Located in scenic western Tennessee, Lakeland lies just outside of Memphis. Even though the drive to downtown Memphis is short, Lakeland feels miles away with low development and natural terrain. This means that Lakeland maintains a sense of country living that is rapidly disappearing in other Shelby County communities and in Memphis. Touted as a place “Where quality of life is a way of life,” Lakeland offers all the vital services with high-quality schools, nearby hospitals, and a community feeling where neighborly attitudes are still very common. Among the popular parks in town are City Park, which has a pavilion with picnic tables, grills, restrooms, drinking fountain, paved parking, paved jogging trails and a playground. The city also maintains a 65-acre park which consists of rolling hills, a fishing pond, picnic facilities, portable restrooms and running, biking and hiking trails through wooded areas. Golf lovers will rejoice in living next to Stonebridge Golf Course, which is open year-round and offers a challenging layout that can be played by all skill levels. The water is a very important part of life here and that extends to recreational activities. Lakeland strives to balance growth and development with preserving the natural resources that define the landscape for Lakeland residents. Lakeland residents have consistently ranked preservation of natural resources as a top priority in public forums and surveys.
