Most of the prosperous communities of Florida’s heartland are more than ten miles to the south, or thirty miles north of the busy highway, but Polk County and the city of Lake Alfred is an exception, only five miles away. It has been growing steadily to the north to accommodate the demand for new, high quality residential areas near Interstate 4. People who work in Tampa, north Lakeland, and southern Orlando are now able to live in new subdivisions on the southern rim of the Green Swamp, through which I-4 passes. They enjoy the benefits of life in a wonderful small town, and relish their access to the work and attractions of Central Florida.
