New Residents

Welcome to Lakeland, Tennessee!

....Where quality is a way of life.

Located in scenic western Tennessee, Lakeland’s low development and natural terrain fosters a sense of country living that is rapidly disappearing in other Shelby County communities and nearby Memphis. A number of lakes, ponds, streams, parks, and other recreational opportunities improve the quality of life for our residents, including a 65-acre park with open space, "The LAMP" Amphitheater, walking/hiking trails, and a lake for fishing. Get active...enjoy life!
