Promenade On The Lake
Photograph - Photography
The historic promenade in downtown Lakeland, Florida. Downtown Lakeland�s history for the last 100 years is reflected in the developing story of Lake Mirror. The work to make Lake Mirror a downtown destination started early in the 20th Century. Not long after the promenade�s 1928 dedication, National Geographic said of the area around the lake, �Like an ornate entrance to some vast Venetian palace looms the Civic Center of Lakeland."
The Great Depression affected not only our standard of living, but our civic pride. By the time Lakeland made it through the Depression and World War II, the city was looking for chances to trumpet Downtown. In March 1946, the walkway around Lake Mirror was dedicated as the Frances Langford Promenade, after one of our city�s residents who had found stardom in radio and movies.
