Thanks to the International Harvester Managerial Club, the City of Lakeland has an outstanding community resource in the 66 acre International Harvester Park and the Clubhouse in the park.
To maintain and enhance this resource, the City of Lakeland developed a program to update and renovate the IH Clubhouse to improve this excellent community resource.
The City recently installed central air conditioning to the Clubhouse and the Lakeland Lions Club just announced the Club has donated funding to provide for a badly needed new floor in the Clubhouse.
Future plans for the IH Clubhouse include:
-A new locking system which will provide for easier access and security by persons or groups using the facility.
-Paint the walls of the Clubhouse to lighten up the interior.
-Update and provide improved lights and furniture at the entrance.
-Modernize the bathroom facilities and kitchen area
-Provide windows in the area where the window air conditioners previously were and windows overlooking the lake.
-Construct a deck overlooking the lake.
-Pave the front parking lot and provide additonal security lighting.
A complete detailed listof proposed improvements is available at City Hall.
Organizations, businesses or individuals who wish to partner with the City of updating this community resource are encouraged to contact Lakeland City Hall for opportunities to participate in the renovaton of this important community resource.
