FOREST LAKES is a well planned community that has amenities for the entire family, conveniently located just north of the city limits of Charlottesville.  It is an established planned development and uses two entrances off of Route 29 North (Seminole Trail), the Forest Lakes North entrance at Timberwood Blvd. and the Forest Lakes South entrance at Ashwood Blvd. The community is near fine public schools and also conveniet to other private schools, along with major shopping along Route 29 north while affordng you the convenience of downtown Charlottesville and all that it has to offer (and at lower property tax rates).  The community offers a main club house at the North office along with a pool, cafe, tennis courts, soccer fiield, play ground and pro shop, .  The South complex also provides pool, cafe, tennis courts, volly ball court, play ground, soccer field, and exercise room.  Between the two are connected by Powell Road on which we have lakes and also area for basketball and also the Southerland Middle School has facilites including baseball fields, etc. and is located adjacent to the back of the South complex.  Paved Walking paths abound the area including trails for walking, running, and bike riding.  The community has many neighborhoods and has many activiities for those that like to participate.  Additionally, the Farmers Market is also now available in the late afternoons and evening once a week at the South complex for those that like their veggies fresh out of the garden... a real difference is noticed and the market is a very welcomed additional convenience for the residents.
I have been a resident since the first part of 2000 and have found it a great place to live and very convenient to shopping, medical facilities and access to areas outside of the city. 
The community association has a website at Forest Lakes Community Association that provides great detail about the community and also past monthly newsletters along with links to other important information regarding the community.

The number of homes and the variance is quite significant for the year to date numbers for our FOREST LAKES COMMUNITY! Well Exceeding sales of the same category for the entire calendar year of 2009. Some has been assisted by the tax credit and anticipation of higher interest rates that were expected to start a gradual increase the middle of May.
Still when comparing the numbers, we have an abundantly clear message, that FOREST LAKES is the most active community of choice for the current pool of home buyers!
