Inspired Architecture, Thoughtfully Designed.

Oakland Park homes are inspired by historic styles and old Florida charm, and built by highly regarded regional builders. Design features such as outward-facing interiors and rear-facing garages provide a pedestrian-friendly feel, while large front porches encourage interaction between neighbors and create an organic feeling as if the community developed over several decades. Community design standards ensure the beauty and integrity of Oakland Park will last for many generations to come.

You’re Never Far from the Water.

There is no shortage of shoreline in Oakland Park. Our community follows the natural grade of the land, which slopes up from the shoreline of the expansive Lake Apopka, providing lake views for many of our beautiful homes.
