The City of Lakeland Parks Division has announced the 38th Annual Swan Roundup which will take place on Lake Morton, Tuesday, October 23, at 7:00 a.m.

Every year, Parks & Recreation employees round up the swans to get them ready for their annual veterinary check-up in efforts to closely monitor the health and vitality of Lakeland’s swan population. The swans will be confined in large holding pens on the south side of the lake for their annual wellness examinations with Dr. Patricia Mattson which will start the morning of October 24 at 8:00 a.m.
