Welcome to
the City of Eagle Lake

"A Nice Place to Live, Work, & Play."

There is no small city more carefully tucked into the Heart of central Florida than Eagle Lake. Surrounded by the bustle and business of this fast-growing region, Eagle Lake has designed a future that takes every advantage of that growth, but carefully preserves its quality of life. We invite you to take a few minutes to learn about this beautiful place, and the people who have shaped their lives and city to a high purpose.

Eagle Lake is situated in the heart of central Florida's 'Imperial' Polk County. The City is astride US Highway 17, between Bartow and Winter Haven. Tampa is fifty miles to the west, and Interstate 4, which links the east and west coasts of Florida, is about 13 miles north of Eagle Lake. State Highway 60 also crosses the state, just a few miles to the south of Eagle Lake.

Residents of Eagle Lake enjoy the best of two worlds: the cultural amenities of a major metropolitan area, and the 'laid-back,' easy living of an uncrowded small-town lifestyle. Residents are within an hour's reach of many world-famous attractions, including Cypress Gardens, Historic Bok Sanctuary, Disney World, Universal Studios, Busch Gardens, and Sea World. In addition to these attractions, the surrounding Polk County offers an number of significant cultural amenities, including art galleries and museums, community theatres, formal gardens, music festivals, a National Historic District, fine dining, and more.
