Killearn Lakes Information and Highlights

Killearn Lakes is a forested suburb just over ten miles north from downtown Tallahassee. What once was acres of farmland is now a thriving community. This area served as the solution for Tallahassee to make room for it’s growing industry. It is the first development of its kind in Tallahassee. Killearn management saw the potential to create a community built to enhance and preserve the natural beauty that surrounds it.

Killearn Lakes is one of the more established suburban areas adjacent to Tallahassee. This makes for a bit more variety when it comes to specialty shops and boutiques. The neighborhoods have a blend of home styles from craftsman, to contemporary. Property in this area is more expensive than living closer to downtown. However, residents here get to enjoy a quiet lifestyle, great schools, and beautiful surroundings.

History

Fifty years ago, Killearn Lake was plantation land. In fact, the lakes within its borders didn’t exist until the 1950’s. The first lake to be created was Lake Monkey Business, built by Julian C. Headley. Later, he dammed the feeder stream to create the other three lakes in the area.

The property was sold in 1964 to a group of sportsmen, who build Kinhega Lodge Estates, Limited. It was then sold to a group of investors less than ten years later. These investors began developing a heavily forested suburb now known as the Killearn Lakes Plantation.

Location

Killearn Lakes are located between downtown Tallahassee and the Georgia border. The area rests to the south of Lake Lamonia. Carr Lake and Lake Jackson are to the south west on the edge of Tallahassee’s border. The Killearn Lake area surrounds Golden Eagle Plantation. Surrounding the plantation are a series of lakes. These lakes include: Lower Dianne Lake, Petty Gulf Lake, and Pine Hill Lake.

The Killearn Lakes area is around ten miles from downtown Tallahassee. To reach Killearn Lakes, take Route 319 North, then exit on Kinhega Drive. If you turn left on Deer Lake South, you will end up circling through to the north end of Killearn.

Weather

Killearn Lakes are located within a subtropical climate. This allows the area to experience all four seasons, while the Florida panhandle only experiences two. Spring and fall are both mild and dry. Temperatures in these seasons stay close to 60 degrees fahrenheit. The leaves even change colors in the fall, which is a beautiful sight to see. Summers are the longest season. They include a humid rainy season between the months of June and July. Winters are only three months long. Winter starts in December and lasts into February. Temperatures stay in the low 50’s, so snow is very rare here.

Shopping

Killearn has a good selection of small businesses, boutiques, and major retailers to fulfill your everyday needs. If you are looking for something special, however, you are sure to find it in Midtown Tallahassee. Check out Midtown’s three shopping centers and many stand-alone shops.

Restaurants

Killearn Lake residents don’t have to go far for a great meal in a comfortable setting. Whether it’s breakfast, lunch, or dinner you desire, the area restaurants will satisfy your cravings. Midtown has a wider selection of dining options, and is less than 15 minutes away.

Nightlife

While Killearn may be quiet, there is always something going on just a short drive away. See live music at one of the nearby pubs. Dance the night away at a nightclub. Enjoy a delicious meal and fine wines with friends. There is a place for you to celebrate the end of the work week.

Schools

Killearn Lakes has high performing schools right in the neighborhood for children of all ages. Parents also have the option to send their children to other schools within the Leon County School System, which includes all of Tallahassee.

Landmarks

The Killearn Lake area is surrounded by forested state parks and expansive golf clubs. There are natural wonders to be found just a few steps from home. If you prefer cultural attractions, downtown Tallahassee has a variety of historical landmarks and attractions. People of all ages will find something inspiring.

Conclusion

Killearn Lakes are one of Tallahassee’s more established modern residential areas. It is just far enough away from the noise and hustle of the city to feel like a rural get-away. However, residents can find comfort that the city’s amenities are well within reach. Area parents are very happy with the schools in the community, as well as the spaces available for their children to play outdoors.

People continue to be drawn to the spaced out homes, green leaves, and state parks the area has to offer. Residents here are mostly comprised of couples ages 35 through 55. Less than 3,000 of these families have children. If you long to work in a city, but still find yourself surrounded by nature everyday, look no further than Killearn Lakes.
