LADY LAKE – Lady Lake’s Pyramid Park will soon receive an exciting makeover with the addition of new playground equipment.

Earlier this year, the Lady Lake Parks and Recreation Department outreached to area children to gather their input in choosing between two new playground options. Through votes taken at The Villages Elementary of Lady Lake, the Lady Lake Library and via the Town’s Facebook page, a majority of children opted for Design Option 1.

The chosen playground structure, in vibrant red, blue and yellow hues, includes several slides, a spinner, a rope climber, and various decks and platforms. It is specifically geared toward kids aged 5-12 with a focus on safety.

With approval from the Town Commission, and at a cost of approximately $270,000, the playground will be paid for through impact fees. The structure will be built by BCI Burke, a company based in Fond Du Lac, Wisconsin. Continue reading

Lady Lake Chamber networking Luncheon was a great success. Over thirty business people attended. Held at Glenview Country Club the food is WOW. Everyone one seemed to be having great success. I met a couple of new businesses.

The Lake County Board of County Commissioners today appointed Mayor Ed Freeman to the Keep Lake Beautiful Advisory Committee. The purpose of the committee is to advise the Board on activities related to the county’s membership in Keep America Beautiful.

The Keep Lake Beautiful program is an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful, Inc., a national non-profit community improvement organization that builds and sustains vibrant communities by creating clean, beautiful public places; reducing waste and increasing recycling; generating positive impacts on the local economy; and inspiring generations of environmental stewards.

“I personally feel keeping our county beautiful and making it more beautiful is extremely important,” said Mayor Freeman. “Anything that I can do to further that idea with our citizens and county commissioners is something with which I would like to be a part.”
