    For Lakewood Ranch, 2019 marks our 25th year of creating community. Today more than 31,000 residents proudly call Lakewood Ranch home.

    Although it’s hard to narrow down all the reasons why the community is beloved, we can easily highlight 25 – starting with polo and ending with the zippy new gravity rail at Bob Gardner Park.
