The Desk of the Mayor

Welcome to the City of Fruitland Park Web Site!

Whether you are a resident, business owner, or are looking to relocate your family or business, our city can offer you all of the amenities of a big city while maintaining the friendliness and charm of a small community in the heart of Central Florida.

Despite being located surrounded by The Villages and Leesburg, Fruitland Park has been able to hold onto its small southern town charm and historic beauty.

Our city parks attract many people with our municipal pool, skate park, interactive library, baseball fields, soccer, and walking paths. Lake Griffin State Park borders our city and we are home to many lakes and ponds.

Our city is a community on the move and it is my belief that we have much to offer. I encourage you to get out into the community and explore what makes us so special. As always, if you have any questions or concerns please let us know. Our staff of dedicated professionals and elected officials look forward to assisting you in anyway possible. If I can be of any service to you please email me at
