On behalf of the residents of Lake City, I would like to welcome you to our community!
We are a cozy agricultural town located in the heart of Northwest Iowa.
With a population just under 1,800, we are booming with over 130 local businesses – ranging from one of the world’s top Organ builders to your local Quilt Shoppe
to the community hospital employing over 250 people to your local bakery!
Lake City is a community that focuses on meeting the needs of all generations as much as possible.
We take pride in both our residents willingness to come together when needed and the appearance of our community, boasting our downtown square, featuring a replica
fountain and bandstand, and well kept city parks and attractions.
Lake City is rich in history, with a heritage over 150 years old! Explore our Central School Preservation
which highlights not only the history of Lake City but the history of education amongst its walls erected in 1884! The fun doesn’t end there! Visit our $2 community movie
theatre showing new releases everyweekend! Dive into our outdoor swimming pool or join the men and women’s league at the beautiful Lake City Country Club! During the chillier
months (and even the summer!) hang out at our indoor recreation center located at Opportunity Living Acres!
And don’t forget to check out our community calendar,
there is always something going on in Lake City! Some of our top events include: Fall Festival & the Dell Blair Memorial Chili Cook-Off, the Christmas Festival,
Jazz in the Park, outdoor movies and of course our Annual Western Days Celebration (in late June) complete with a carnival and 2 night rodeo!!!
This website is a collaboration of the City of Lake City and the Lake City Betterment Association. We have worked hard to provide needed and easily accessible
information for the local resident, visitors and of course new residents! I encourage you to check out all it has to offer! If you have any questions at all about
our website or community please visit our contact page and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
I look forward to seeing you in and around Lake City!
Lake City Mayor
