Lakewood Ranch

The top multi-generational community in the nation for five consecutive years.

Welcome to Lakewood Ranch

Luxe amenities and blissful family life in a master-planned community

The idyllic town of Lakewood Ranch has garnered awards and accolades for years, including recognition as the top multi-generational community in the nation for five consecutive years. 

Comprising over two dozen village communities, Lakewood Ranch has been developing as a self-contained, family-centric city for over a century and locals are thrilled with the results. The villages range from pristine gated golf estates and stately mansions to townhomes, villas, and multigenerational floor plans. Lakewood Ranch has thought of every element of daily life, and families find everything they could want right at their fingertips. The three town centers feature cinemas, upscale shopping, casual cafes, elegant fine dining, and lovely parks and sidewalks for morning jogs and afternoon playdates with the kids. 

While the warm, community-centric atmosphere weaves throughout the entire Lakewood Ranch neighborhood, Main Street is the heart of this connection. It is where residents can stroll, chat over a coffee, or catch a concert. Lakewood Ranch’s commitment to the community is clear every Saturday when Main Street hosts the Small Business Market, allowing residents to shop from local vendors and family-run businesses. The Green is a town center and residential development with more than two dozen businesses and restaurants. 

Sunday polo matches at the Sarasota Polo Club are a favorite gathering spot for residents. The thrill of horses racing, a crisp glass of champagne, and good friends to share the experience with make this a coveted Lakewood Ranch event. Lakewood Ranch’s aptly named Premier Sports Campus is a sprawling complex featuring 22 athletic fields for various sports, including soccer, football, and lacrosse. Fish ponds and lushly landscaped surroundings elevate Fish Hole Miniature Golf from a vacation activity to a must-do family activity. You can even feed the turtles after the round, which makes this a favorite for kids.

Lakewood Ranch families benefit from several excellent schools. Whether you are interested in prestigious private institutions, like The Out-of-Door Academy, or exceptional Manatee County Public School offerings, such as Robert Willis Elementary School and Lakewood Ranch High School, Lakewood Ranch has first-rate educational experiences for every student.
