The Village is managed by the South Lake Historical Society and is home to original, historic structures, including: a train depot, Townsend Home, Kern Home, Cooper Memorial Library and a World War II Quonset hut in addition to a re-created one-room schoolhouse.
Waterfront Park is located along Lake Minneola, between East Avenue and Eighth Street. The park is home to almost weekly festivals, such as Pig on the Pond, and a host of triathlons and new water competitions, such as the Champions’ Dragon Boat Festival and Leader of the Lake Regatta. A fitness trail that is part of a 30-mile system, and will be part of the coast-to-coast trail, runs through the park.
