Lakeland is a booming Memphis, TN suburb with a growing population of over 12,500 residents. Historically known as a small rural community, Lakeland is on the rise with new residential construction, plans for an upscale mixed-use retail development and a new town square concept—all designed to retain a small-town, close-knit community feel. Lakeland Elementary has earned the prestigious distinction of being named a Blue Ribbon School. The Lakeland School system will offer Lakeland students a complete K-12 education via its new middle school and plans for a high school in the near future. Known for homes surrounded by a lake or sheltered by the woods, Lakeland offers many desireable neighborhoods to choose from—Oakwood, Evergreen Hills, Herons Ridge, Cool Springs, Long Landing, Oakwood Grove, The Grove, The Preserve and Winstead Farms, to name a few.
