When the first settlers come to Haines City, they found it rich with wild game and fish. Some turned to the forest for production of lumber and turpentine, while others became citrus growers. In 1909, a small group of growers formed a citrus growers association which became the largest employer in the city. In 1915, the Florida Fruit Products Company pioneered the production of bottled grapefruit juice. Haines City companies became the lead processors of citrus in the 20's and 30's. The 40's brought the experimentation in frozen citrus concentrate.
Although its main industry is citrus production, it's becoming a popular retirement area. Historic downtown renovations have helped boost the economic development.
Lake Eva Park, located in downtown Haines City, features a waterfront banquet hall, a band shell and lawn area for concerts, and trails. Sports are in abundance, with a competition pool, tennis courts, basketball courts, and playgrounds. Opening in 2009, this Park is quickly becoming on one Central Florida's premier parks.
