Leisure World is a private, gated senior community.

As a senior community, resident owners must be at least 55 years of age, and any additional residents living with them must be at least 50.
The community offers a diverse array of housing styles and sizes. Leisure World has 29 housing associations, known as Mutuals. Most of these Mutuals are condo ownership, which include garden-style elevator buildings, hi-rise buildings, townhomes, and rambler-style patio homes. There are also coops in the Montgomery Mutual housing association, which include garden-style homes, semi-detached homes, and townhomes.
Leisure World has numerous on-site amenities, promoting a self-sufficient community while providing convenience, accommodations, and recreation to residents. Top amenities include an 18-hole championship golf course, two clubhouses, a theater, indoor and outdoor pools, a fitness center, tennis courts, two main restaurants, two worship centers, a post office, a Physical Properties maintenance department, and the MedStar Medical Center offering primary care, specialists, and a full-service pharmacy.

They can also attend performances and events at the clubhouses and theater, and they can join any of the 100+ clubs, organizations, and classes/seminars that the community has to offer.
