COMMUNITY

Marion Oaks, started in 1972, is an established family community. We have more than 15,000 friendly and active residents who hail from 50 states and six continents. The community is on pretty pasture lands with rolling hills and ancient oak trees. There are parks and playgrounds throughout the community and the Cross Florida Greenway borders the community on the north. It gives access to hundreds of miles of hiking, biking and horseback riding trails.

Residents also enjoy the recently expanded Marion Oaks Community Center with a 450 seat auditorium, meeting rooms, well-stocked library and recreational facilities, like the lighted multi-purpose sports courts.

Marion Oaks also offers two challenging championship 18-hole public golf courses – each with a pro shop. The course at Marion Oaks Country Club is one of the best kept secrets in Florida www.marionoakscountryclub.com/index.html. Inside the community you will also find the Huntington Golf course www.huntingtongolf.com. If you ever want to change it up and play a course outside of the community, you will have dozens to choose from right in Marion County.

The community also provides shopping areas that include the Heath Brook and Paddock shopping malls and Publix, Winn Dixie and Wal-Mart grocery stores.  There are also 16 houses of worship and dozens of clubs, organizations and civic groups.

Within the master planned community are three schools; two are elementary schools and one is a middle school.
