A Delightful Place to Live, Work & Play
Lakewood Ranch is a huge master-planned community that combines all the finest components of “a wonderful life.” Located on the southeastern edge of Manatee County pretty much “between the cities of Sarasota and Bradenton, Florida, Lakewood Ranch is so much more than just a place to enjoy life. It’s a community with multiple country club and golf neighborhoods. It is a place that will provide you with an absolutely delightful lifestyle and lasting friendships whether you are a avid golfer a duffer or not a golfer at all.

All nine villages share dramatic landscapes with forest and wetland preserves and hundreds of species of native wildlife.
