Welcome to Forest Lakes

Arkansas Retirement Community

Forest Lakes is a 55 and better community for people who enjoy active, vibrant lives. The community focuses on a positive social atmosphere for people who want to live an exciting lifestyle. The residents join each other to discuss contemporary and current events in the woodworking shop, while gardening, and during the many other events.

Forest Lakes residents can take dance lessons, water aerobics, work on strength training, and play billiards, along with numerous other activities that take place in the luxurious and comfortable clubhouse or just kick back and relax with friends and family. All homes are custom built to the owner’s specifications. Forest Lakes features beautifully furnished model homes. They have been built to inspire and to get the creative juices flowing for prospective residents.

The lawns and gardens at Forest Lakes are manicured by a 20-member landscaping team that includes two master gardeners and a horticulturalist. There is a community garden for all residents and elevated beds are easily accessible for a “hands-on” experience so residents can grow their own vegetables, herbs, and flowers. There is also an orchard, complete with bee colonies to help pollinate all the fruits and vegetables.

The new Apple Blossom phase of Forest Lakes features four models: The Magnolia, The Aspen, The Hickory, and The Dogwood.
