Tree-lined streets, excellent schools, a beautiful trail system, and a family-friendly environment are just a few of the reasons why the City's 16,000 residents call Lake Mary home.

The crime rate is one of the lowest in Florida, thanks to our proactive, community-based Police Department.
Education in Lake Mary is outstanding. In fact, the Seminole County Public School District not only ranks as one of the top school systems in the state but also ranks nationally. During the 2011-12 school year, the district was designated as an Academically High-Performing School District by the Florida Department of Education for the fifth consecutive year. Among the district's numerous other accolades, Newsweek Magazine, U.S. News, and the Washington Post ranked Seminole County Public Schools in the top four percent in the nation. The Lake Mary area also has a number of highly regarded private schools.
Lake Mary Entertainment
A large part of the City's redevelopment effort is centered within Lake Mary's downtown development district, a walkable community with a cutting-edge personality. Downtown is home to fine dining, sandwich shops, clothing boutiques, offices, a beautiful park, the picturesque Events Center and City Hall. Every Saturday, hundreds come out to enjoy the gorgeous Florida weather, local produce, and crafts by local vendors at the Lake Mary Farmer's Market. If an evening atmosphere is more your style, you can attend WineART Marketplace, which is held on the first Wednesday of each month. The event includes food trucks, a wine/beer garden, artists, live music, shopping, restaurants, and more.
The beauty of Lake Mary is natural. Whether you bike, run, walk or rollerblade, you can appreciate and enjoy its appeal. The Rinehart Trail, part of the Cross Seminole Trail system, runs through Lake Mary. Our Parks and Recreation facilities are not only beautifully maintained, but they offer something for everyone. The ideal Florida weather will make you want to take advantage of every opportunity to be outdoors.
As a family-oriented community, Lake Mary offers a wide variety of youth recreation opportunities. Whether your child is interested in baseball, softball, soccer, golf, or tennis, we have a program for them! For our seniors, those 55 and older, we provide an atmosphere of camaraderie and entertainment at the Senior Center and through various events.
