Real Estate Agent with

Florida is a renowned retirement destination for many reasons, although year-round sunshine and warm weather are two that come to mind for most. What better way to enjoy the idyllic weather than relaxing outdoors by the pool or participating in your favorite activities? With six pools, plenty of sports and clubs, and an activities director, Oak Run offers everything you need to enjoy your retirement exactly how you’ve imagined.


Decca began construction on Oak Run in 1985 and the community was completed in 2007. In total, there are 3,509 homes in Oak Run. The community offers both attached and single-family homes available on a resale-only basis. Attached homes range from 1,049 to 1,489 square feet, and feature two or three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and an attached one or two-car garage. Single-family homes range from 1,112 to 2,275 square feet, and feature two or three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and an attached one or two-car garage. Some models of both the single-family and attached style homes also feature a den.


Oak Run’s gated entry offers homeowners a sense of security, while its expansive list of amenities provides residents with plenty to do. The community features three clubhouses, with the largest being the 30,000-square-foot Palm Grove Club. Residents can stay active by heading to one of the the fitness centers, swimming in the resort-style pool, or by playing pickleball, tennis, bocce, horseshoes, shuffleboard, or sand volleyball.


With close to 100 clubs and activities on site, residents at Oak Run can engage in a wide variety of hobbies. Homeowners looking for a creative outlet can spend time at the arts and crafts studio or the ceramics studio, and those who enjoy a good book can head to the library. The community boasts an on-site activities director, who keeps the activity schedule full and opens up a number of possibilities for residents looking to try something new. Members at Royal Oaks Golf Club can play on the 18-hole championship golf course or dine at the club restaurant.


Oak Run residents can venture to one of the area’s natural springs to take in the scenery, or explore Ocala’s historic downtown area to dine at one of the city’s local restaurants. In addition, the city features wineries, shopping, farmers markets, and festivals for the community to enjoy.

Oak Run sounds and looks like a very beautiful place. I'll have to get the family together for a trip.
