HORTICULTURE AND BEAUTIFICATION

The evolution of Lake Placid's beauty and horticultural diversity is a historical story of citizens
who have grown to care for our town over the years.  

In 2016 the Town merged responsibility for the town's sidewalks and horticulture interest
 into a single position that is wholly funded by the Town.    The Town has a full-time employee dedicated to
keeping the plant life irrigated, fertitilized, trimmed, and safe, as well as the town's sidewalks. 

The town strives to make Lake Placid a delightful and safe place to live and visit.

 

TRIBUTE TO KEEP LAKE PLACID BEAUTIFUL

Keep Lake Placid Beautiful (KLPB) exist today as an organized citizen effort to develop and maintain Lake Placid's hoticultural interests.    Organized in 2002 to promote public interest in the general improvement of the environment of Lake Placid, Florida, KLPB has transformed the Town of Lake Placid by vigilantly pursuing complimentary landscapes.

Central to the effort has been long time nursery owner Mike Eisenhart who retired in 2016, and the KLPB board which meets regulary at the Chamber of Commerce.
