Lake Alfred has the best fishing around in Polk County. We have a number of lakes that are loaded with bass. The main one is Lake Rochelle located on Lake Shore Way. All lakes in the city have docks for your fishing pleasure.
The Memorial Trail is approximately 2 miles and is connected to the Winter Haven trail. The trails are all connectd to the main trail which is the Van Fleet Trail. That trail will eventually have connections throughout all of Polk County.

We are the home of 10 beautiful parks. Each is individual in size and appearance. Lions Park offers a playground and newly built deck along with a new dock. Gardner Park is the home of the Veterans Memorial and also commemorates one of the major founders of Lake Alfred. Central Park is undergoing a major addition of basketball and football fields.
Lake Alfred is a proud city respecting all branches of military services. In 2012 we opened the Veterans memorial at Gardner Park. There are monuments for each of the wars and all branches of service. The Iwo Jima monument which is the main one is a replica of the original one. On the back are black marble plaques honoring many former Lake Alfred veterans. There is much to see so make it a point to get there.
