    I don't often go into Lake Club but I've not seen many young kids playing outside. The info center tells me I am wrong and there are many families with school aged kids living in The Lake Club. Anyone have any first hand knowledge on this point?

    I don't live in The Lake Club so my first hand information isn't....but my friend lives there with two elementary aged kids. She has told me that she's been there from the beginning and has never met her neighbor on either side! There are also three other families that I know that live in there with young kids - middle and elementary. So there are kids about but I think it's the exception rather than the rule.

    There are quite a lot of kids and more moving in. We are one of 3 families that have moved in in the last 6 months within a few houses of each other. There is a new playground being built and lots of kids activities.

    Thanks, I appreciate the help. So, you would say that a family with school aged kids would easily find other families in this community? Do you see kids playing or riding bikes? Are neighbors friendly and do things together?

    Where is the new playground being built? Where the old one was or over by the new section?

    You may not have young kids right next door. There are a lot of empty nesters here no different than any other FL neighborhood. But there are kids around each area of the neighborhood. Our kids are out all the time (at least on weekends) playing, riding bikes, etc. You will also see kids playing in the linear park also. Neighbors get together quite a bit. There are multiple activities planned every month (poker, lunch & a movie, bunco, book club, etc). Kids activities are usually every couple of months. Hope this helps.

    It is in addition to the existing one. They are replacing parts of it with more 'fun' stations and also adding swings, a slide and monkey bars.

    I wouldn't want to mislead anyone thinking of buying in the Lake Club. There are not many children at all. The playground gets very little use. It is much more a retirement community with an overwhelming focus on adult activities. If you are looking for a community with more children it would be Greenbrook.

    I have never once seen a kid on the playground in the Lake Club and I go through there a lot at different times. Ditto the pools.

    I'm choosing between Lake Club, CC AND CCE. I have to choose next week. My wife and I are in our mid 40's with 11, 14 and 16 year old daughters. What are your thoughts on social activities for adults and kids also how about saftey of areas.

    Greenbrook is the best neighborhood for children's activities.

    CC and CCE kids are at a minimum.....Lake club i have no idea.... Good Luck either way....
     
  14. Bob,

    The HOA has strict rules about children being outside playing, enjoying themselves or making any noise at all.

    The rules are so overbearing parents are forced to keep kids inside in front of the TV.

    Yes, Robert. And if under 10 have to be strapped to a tree.

    Possibly could be considered strict if you have kids under 10 but it is a tradeoff for some. Do you really want kids chasing tennis balls all over the neighborhood, playing marbles in the common areas, never mind opening fire hydrants to cool off when there is a community pool available for all!
     
  19. I would celebrate that.. It would be amazing to see happy kids
