The Waterfront is open Wednesday- Sunday during the academic year.

Florida Southern’s Waterfront program provides students with the unique opportunity to enjoy all that Florida has to offer.

The program is free and open to faculty, students, and staff. All you need is your FSC ID.

Located on Lake Hollingsworth, directly across from the Wellness Center, you will find our boathouse and beautiful dock, which serves as a home base for our Waterfront activities. At the dock, you can check out kayaks and paddleboards. One of the most popular recreational lakes in Polk County, Lake Hollingsworth is relatively small. With an average depth of 4 feet, it is the ideal place to give water sports a try. Other activities on or around the lake include fishing, bird watching, picnicking, biking, and a very busy three-mile paved walking path. Just sign a waiver and we provide the rest.
