About Lake Mary
Lake Mary, nicknamed the City of Lakes, was ranked number 1 best place to live in Florida and 4th in the US.
These statistics are the result of this city’s quiet and beautiful residential neighborhoods, the many picturesque lakes, excellent schools, low crime rate, ample shopping and friendly faces. On any day, you will find cyclists, joggers and people strolling the several miles of trail that meander throughout the city and you’ll find shoppers and diners enjoying the sights at the many upscale shopping plazas. At the Sports Complex, you’ll find young and old participating in the many outdoor activities including baseball, softball, soccer, basketball, and tennis. Included in this massive complex are batting cages, a new skate/bike park, and even a fishing bridge.
The City of Lake Mary, named after the wife of a local minister, was formed back in the 19th century with the merging of two small settlements, Bent’s Station and Belle Fontaine, located along the Sanford – Orlando railway. Citrus crops were Lake Mary’s main agricultural industry and it remained a small community for many years. During the early 70’s, Central Florida’s growth flourished and thus, Lake Mary incorporated into a city in 1973. During the 90’s, Lake Mary experienced accelerated growth with no end in sight. The population has grown to around 15,000.
Commercial development along the I-4 corridor is growing at a fast pace and at present, contains over 8 million square feet of office space. Many major employers are located in that area including AAA’s National Headquarters, Convergys, Mitsubishi Power Supply, Dixon Ticonderoga, FISERV Solutions. With the lowest property tax in Seminole County and high quality of life standard, Lake Mary has become the destination of choice for many young families and professionals.
