The Advantages of Living in a Master Planned Community
When looking for a home, most people want more than a house that is attractive and functions well. You need an entire community that serves your needs. One solution is to house hunt in master-planned communities.
The problem many buyers face when searching for homes that are new or recently constructed is subdivisions don’t yet contain favorite amenities, such as bike paths, walking and jogging trails, community event, a golf course, lakes, parks, and public schools.
Not all subdivisions have neighborhood schools. But master planned communities are different.
Forest Ridge Master Planned Community
You’ll find neighborhood schools as well as a wealth of recreation opportunities when you tour an area with some of the most beautiful homes for sale in Forest Ridge in Broken Arrow, OK. Definitions of master-planned communities usually say that they encompass far more recreational amenities than a regular housing subdivision. That is the case in the 1,000+ acre Forest Ridge community, which includes one of the area’s most beautifully landscaped golf courses.
You don’t have to be an experienced golfer to enjoy the 18-hole Forest Ridge Golf Course, which offers lessons for newcomers to the sport of golf, as well as those who want to sharpen their skills. You don’t have to golf at all to enjoy the elegance the course offers. Forest Ridge offers a Southern-style clubhouse, which includes the full-service restaurant, Rocking “R” Ranch House, as well as a bar.
One of the best event centers in Tulsa — a popular venue for weddings and formal events — is the Glass Veranda, which offers expansive views of the golf course.
Forest Ridge’s other outdoor amenities include:
- Numerous lakes with catch-and release fishing
- A 10-mile trail system for walking, jogging, and biking
- Four parks with playgrounds and open fields
- The Ridge Club – private social and fitness center offering 6 tennis courts, resort-style pool, bocce ball, sand volleyball, and more
- Resident events
Part of what knits a master-planned community together is its calendar of events. At Forest Ridge, we promote togetherness at gatherings such as our Rockin’ at the Ridge parties, Santa Visit, Bobber Bash fishing event and more.
