show info

What once began as a small train depot on the rail way to Tampa, Lutz has since grown to become a bustling little Floridian city. In fact, Lutz had become so big by the 1960s that the original junction was demolished. The city has continued to blossom as a residential paradise. Today, Lutz prides itself on being a community for the people, with a commitment to moving forward while still remembering its small town past.

Old Train Depot

Originally known as "North Tampa," Lutz experienced such quick growth after the construction of its junction along the Tampa railway in 1913 that it no longer depended on this historic train depot by the mid-1900s. So the city decided to demolish this original depot in the 1960s. However, less than 40 years later, Lutz decided to pay tribute to its past by constructing a replica of the depot from which all of its success stemmed. Today, the Lutz Train Depot sits on the corner of Lutz-Lake Fern Road and U.S. Highway 41, just across the road from where the original once stood.

Arts & Crafts Festiva

For over 30 years, Lutz has attracted artists and crafters from all over Florida to its annual Arts and Crafts Festival each December. The event is held by the GFWC Lutz-Land O'Lakes Woman's Club, who have the motto "Serve Today for a Better Tomorrow." It is only fitting that all proceeds from the event, including their hot dog and peach cobbler booth, go to support local non-profit organizations. So, clear your calendars for the first weekend in December, and come on out for a fun day of browsing arts and crafts, eating home made pies, and support worthy causes.

Lake Park

Whether you are looking for somewhere to spend a relaxing afternoon on the water or a place to get active with family and friends, Lake Park is the perfect location. Located on the southwest side of Lutz, this park is over 589 acres in size and features five lakes. It also serves as a sanctuary for birds and wildlife, making it a great place for bird-watchers and nature enthusiasts. With an archery range, BMX track, campgrounds, equestrian arenas, hiking trails, and more, there is always something for individuals and families to do at Lake Park.
