The Clubhouse

If you don’t believe we are one of the best adult communities in Florida, take a look at all the amenities offered at our clubhouse and fitness center.

Of course the usual library, game room, and billiard room are Florida Over 55 Community | Stay Active In The Community Clubhouse Health And Fitness Centerthere too, but unlike some places, we have a full time social activities director, just like on the cruise ships; and onsite courses are regularly available to all our residents.

The fitness center has racquet ball courts, pickle ball courts, plus an indoor basketball court, running track, and heated swimming pool.

A Florida Over 55 Community For Truly Active Adults

Besides all the amenities, Lake Ashton is right on the lake, with a boat launch ramp and a dock with slips, and an RV boat storage area. Our residents can enjoy boating, fishing, sailing, and water skiing to their hearts’ content. There are also two private golf courses, with pro shop and driving range, and a sports pub for that nineteenth hole. There is even a full service bank on site, and our gate house is manned all day, every day.
