City of Fruitland Park, Florida

Fruitland Park calls itself, “The Friendly City.” It predates the Civil War, though the name did not come until later. The first settlers planted citrus groves. The city was named for the nurseries that eventually populated the area. Fruitland Park is also home to the oldest Dirt Kart Track in America, dating back to 1956.
