Start Your Morning with a Walk on the West Orange Trail

Stop by the Clubhouse

Once you get back from the trail, take a breather at the Clubhouse! Designed to be a gathering place for all, the Clubhouse at Oakland Park is the perfect location to catch up with friends or for quiet time to finish up the last chapter of a book The Clubhouse is also home to the Oakland Park Lifestyle Director, and serves as a backdrop for community activities and events.

Beat the Afternoon Heat by the Pool

Long summer days under the hot Florida sun call for one thing… a trip to the pool! Oakland Park offers two to choose from, providing plenty of space to play, relax, and enjoy. Spend the summer days catching some rays poolside, or take a dip alongside the palm trees with neighbors and friends!


Pick a Park, Any Park…

Meadowmarsh Park, Allenhurst Park, Kershaw Park, Oak Grove Lawn… the list goes on and on. Oakland Park offers numerous green spaces throughout our community for a game of catch, a picnic, fetch with the dog, and so much more. Spend your late summer afternoon playing and exploring in one of these green natural spaces!


Wind Down with an Evening Stroll Along the Lake(s)

End your fun-filled summer day with a nice walk along the lakeshore. Oakland Park is home to seemingly endless shoreline along the banks of Lake Brim and the expansive Lake Apopka. Many residents enjoy waterfront views just outside of their front door, and all are only steps away from skipping rocks, dropping in a fishing line, or simply taking a walk alongside our signature bodies of water.

Good thing you have a full summer ahead… because there’s plenty more to do all season long! Check out our full list of amenities to plan your perfect summer day at Oakland Park.
