Lake Morton Drive Lakeland, FL. 33801
Although it is named Lake Morton, for Kentucky native John P. Morton, Lakeland residents know it is really “Swan Lake,” where Lakeland’s signature resident calls home. The majestic swans, the muse of many local artists, are found at this quaint locale on the southern edge of downtown Lakeland. Lake Morton is located between Lake Mirror & Lake Hollingsworth. Morton is widely considered the epicenter of artistic activities in Lakeland. The Lakeland Public Library & The Polk Museum of Art both overlook beautiful Lake Morton & the Downtown Antiques District is just a hop, skip, & jump away! The annual Mayfaire by-the-Lake, an outdoors Art festival, is held every Mother’s Day weekend.
Residences of Lakeland’s important community leaders and civic buildings are located here. The Public Library, the Lakeland Woman’s Club, Lakeland Chamber of Commerce, and the Sorosis Club were all built on Lake Morton.
