Lakeland: Munn Park Historic District pictures

Recommended Posts

While visiting Polk County this past weekend, I decided to drive around and take some pictures. This first thread is of the Munn Park Historic District in the heart of downtown Lakeland.

Great Pics! Lakeland is a jewel for Central Florida. They have a very walkable downtown. About a month ago I was "stranded" downtown so I just strolled around. I like the quality public art. Nothing too wacky. Its' downtown has a unique to Florida setting being on top of a little hill with lakes on all sides.

Nice pictures. The Terrace Hotel looks like it has rich molding, I like it. Also, I've eaten at the Harry's in St. Augustine. Best jumbolaya outside of NO!!!

Hehe, there is a Harry's in downtown Gainesville, also. In a renovated historic building that looks very much like the one in the above picture.

I agree about the food at Harry's. It is excellent. Oh, by the way, nice pics of Lakeland. I'll have to go check it out myself someday.

^That's the Lake Mirror Promenade. Its basically a pedestrian walkway surrounding Lake Mirror, on the east side of downtown, that was constructed in the 1920's. The "bridge" effect is actually walkways going up to street level, since downtown sits on a higher elevation than the lake.

Never spent much time in Lakeland but that needs to change. That place is quickly coming of age and has more history and landmarks to give it personality than most of Florida's mid-sized boomtowns.
