In 1963 Lakeland Village a private golfing community was established by Don & Bob Anderson. Today it features a 27 hole P.G.A. golf course a 50 acre spring-fed lake, dining in a lakefront restaurant and a walk or bike ride on miles of quiet streets.  Three community beaches, outdoor kitchens, a children's playground and swimming area round out the lakeside amenities.


The Allyn Community Association was established and in 1988 they built the gazebo at the waterfront park in Allyn and continue to improve it.
