On behalf of the Winter Haven City Commission, I would like to welcome you to the City of Winter Haven's website. Our goal is to provide a website with easy access to information on city services and events of interest to the citizens we serve.


Winter Haven is a progressive community of more than 38,000 people calling our lovely city home, as a wonderful place to live work, and play. The City of Winter Haven is home to LEGOLAND Florida and is conveniently located between two major tourist regions - Tampa and Orlando. We offer an abundant supply of recreational opportunities to our citizens and visitors alike. Whether you're boating or fishing on any of our 50 lakes in our well known Chain of Lakes, walking or biking on our trails, or just enjoying a show at Theatre Winter Haven, one of the best community theaters in the world - Winter Haven has something for everyone. Our thriving civic organizations, and business community work in harmony with the city to ensure the needs of our citizens are met.


We strive to provide our citizens and visitors with a quality of life and services second to none.  We truly are Central Florida's Best.

I encourage you to explore the different areas of our website to learn more about your government. We are committed to improving and expanding our ability to provide citizens with information concerning the services and functions of our municipal government. Thank you for visiting We look forward to serving you online and in person.
