The north side of Mulberry has almost become a suburb of Lakeland. There are some nice developments and still some new houses being built there. The Imperial Lakes Golf and Country Club are off Shepherd Road along with some very nice homes.
The North Part of Mulberry is really like living in Lakeland. It is really booming with lots of new stores. Shepherd Rd divides Lakeland and Mulberry. The N side of the road is Lakeland, the south side is Mulberry. I think Mulberry is a safe as anyplace.
Most people shop in Lakeland, some go to Bartow or Brandon.
