Lithia Real Estate Information

The rather quaint community of Lithia is a suburb of Tampa and has a population in excess of 8,500 people. The community has a rich heritage revolving around the area’s agricultural past, saw mills, and intriguing phosphate mining that used to take place in the area. Composed of several smaller neighborhoods, Lithia includes the 3,000-acre Newland Communities as well as the Fishhawk Trails. Lake Hutto, a new subdivision is also in the development phase of construction. The 1,129-acre area will eventually include almost 4,000 new homes, stores, and office spaces. Each neighborhood brings an especially different personality to the Lithia area, creating a relatively diverse and unique place to live.

The Hawksgrove Park and Sports Complex is one of Lithia’s most popular recreational areas because of its indoor gyms and courts, fitness facilities, and other amenities. Many of Lithia’s organized youth sports teams host practices and tournaments at the complex. Alderman’s Ford Park and Lithia Springs County Park are two of Lithia’s other main creational areas and offer large grassy fields, picnic areas, and often hold large parties and community gatherings.

Lithia also serves as a gateway to the much larger Alafia River State Park thanks to its position between the park and Tampa. Alafia River State Park features several important amenities and activities, including bicycling, birding, canoeing, fishing, hiking, horse trails, picnicking areas, wildlife viewing, and full camping facilities. A local mountain bike club has actually developed several advanced trails in the area around the interesting phosphorus strip mine. Several visitors and adventure-seeking tourists stop by and stay in Lithia before heading out to the state parks to take part in a number of the different activities available.
