The Local Lifestyle
Forest Glen at Kingsland Country Estates is a rambling community abundant with towering trees, conservation areas, and beautiful nature views in southwest Ocala, a laid-back city home to plenty of nature, recreation, and entertainment opportunities. Your buyers will love exploring the welcoming lifestyle that Ocala has to offer including:
Nature – Residents love experiencing the nature and wildlife at the nearby Ocala National Forest, the southern-most forest in the continental U.S. and world’s largest sand pine scrub forest. Enjoy a day on the water in one of the forest’s more than 600 lakes, rivers, and springs - perfect for an afternoon of snorkeling, diving, and swimming, or taking a paddle in a canoe or kayak. Three first-magnitude springs offer awe-inspiring crystal clear water that is a constant, year-round 72 degrees.
Just south of home, the Ross Prairie State Forest and Cross Florida Greenway offer trails for hiking, biking, and horseback riding, with 110 miles of trails providing unique wildlife views. Ocala residents also enjoy having a relaxing picnic at the dog-friendly Liberty Community Park, spotting beautiful birds at the Shangri-La Campground, or wandering the labyrinths and gardens at Sholom Park. No matter the outdoor recreation preference, Ocala has it in abundance.
Equestrians - Ocala is also known as the horse capital of the world and home to many equestrian clubs and venues. Here, residents can witness world-class competitions in a variety of disciplines and breeds, or take an afternoon trail ride.
Golfing - New homes at Kingsland are also located near beautiful country clubs and golfing retreats. Less than five miles away from home, buyers can enjoy the “warmth, charm, and splendor” of Royal Oaks Golf Club, an award-winning 18-hole golf course with beautiful scenery or book some tee time on the rolling fairways of Marion Oaks Country Club.
