About Us
 
 

Welcome to our Oak Forest community situated in an area of Englewood, Sarasota County that affords lush surroundings and short drives to three beautiful Florida beaches.

Our community is a very active center of activity with weekly happenings including numerous card and game nights, classes for sewing, knitting, swimming, a book club, our ever popular bocce league and weekly bicycle trips. These activities are held at our clubhouse which houses our library, exercise-fitness room, board meeting room and our kitchen which is very much utilized for our pot luck suppers, catered affairs, dances and other functions.
 
One of our very active areas is the clubhouse swimming pool surrounded by mature plantings and a lovely butterfly garden maintained by our ladies of the garden club.
 
Our pool area lends itself to friends gathering in the afternoon in the heated and relaxing water and lounging on the comfortable lounge chairs. It is a wonderful way to spend a Florida afternoon. Three mornings a week bring our ladies to the pool for water aerobics exercise.
 
Adjacent to the pool area are our two lighted bocce and tennis courts which see lots of action during the week with scheduled leagues and others who love to get out and hit the ball around with friends. We have a very active bocce and tennis group in the community and they enjoy the beautifully kept courts.
 
Our four lakes in the community take on a life of their own at night when the fountains are lighted and lend calmness to the surrounding nature.
 
Oak Forest is a gathering of residents from all over the United States, Canada and other countries who have found a hidden secret in a community that enjoys a relaxed lifestyle and many new friends.
