Boca Raton is no stranger to gated communities. In fact, they are a signature of the area. Many people who call Boca Raton home at least part-time live in a gated community, and if you’re considering moving into the area, you may be overwhelmed with how many communities there are.
Gated communities are great for most families or retirees. They offer a level of security that the average home doesn’t have, and when you purchase a home within a gated community, you often get access to high-end amenities. These can include a pool, a clubhouse, tennis or sports courts, fitness centers, and even a play area for your children or grandchildren. A gated community is far more than just a collection of homes; it really does foster a sense of community and involvement.
These are some of the best gated communities in the Boca Raton area. Whether you’re just curious about what is available or you’re thinking of making the move, this list will give you a good starting point to keep searching.
Royal Palm Yacht and Country Club
This is considered the ultimate gated community in Boca Raton, and for good reason. Royal Palm Yacht and Country Club
was founded in 1959 and regularly tops the list of the best private country clubs in all of South Florida. Residents don’t just get to enjoy incredible real estate and homes, but there is also a full-service marina, an extensive private golf course, and a state-of-the-art wellness center that includes group exercise classes, personal training, and even spa services. Members can also enjoy access to the renovated pool and gazebo. If you’re less interested in golf but still want to play a sport, there are five tennis and sports courts with teams and clinics.
There is also 24-hour surveillance and a guard on duty at all times. Royal Palm is home to some of the most important and powerful families not just in Florida but also in the U.S., and the community takes that very seriously.
Woodfield Country Club
Looking for something a little more family-friendly? Woodfield Country Club
is considered one of the best gated communities in Boca Raton for families. Kids have their own 3,000-square-foot clubhouse, every restaurant has a kids’ menu, and there are group fitness classes and activities just for little ones. There’s a game room for teens and three playgrounds across the area.
The community is spread across several neighborhoods and has about 1,300 residences in total. There are larger single-family estates, as well as villas and townhouses, so no matter what you’re looking for, there is something here for you. There are also several pools, a spa, and an 18-hole golf course. It’s really no wonder this is considered one of the best communities in the area.
If you want a lot of space and a very modern feel, Boca Bridges
may be the gated community for you. In general, homes in this community are at least 3,000 square feet, and some of the larger ones have 10,000 or more square feet. The community considers itself the “ultimate” in Florida luxury living and offers incredible amenities to back that up.
The community has a gourmet restaurant that features world-renowned chefs. There is a 27,000-square-foot clubhouse, incredible pools, a splash park for young kids, and a gatehouse that is staffed with security at all times. Boca Bridges is the new face of Boca Raton luxury living.
When people think of gated communities in Boca Raton, Boca Falls
is often brought up as one of the best. This community has a good mix of high-end luxury living and family-friendly amenities, with schools close enough to walk to. There are just over 700 homes in this community, so it’s a lot smaller than some others on the list.
Amenities include an Olympic-size swimming pool and a kids’ pool, several community clubs, a fitness center, six tennis courts, a basketball court, and a clubhouse. Home sizes in Boca Falls are generally large, with most homes having at least four bedrooms and 2,500 square feet. The community works hard to foster relationships and provide a true sense of neighborhood and community within the gated walls.
Lotus Boca Raton
This community has a vibe similar to that of Boca Bridges. The original concept for these modern gated communities was to bring in new families to keep the neighborhood lively and exciting. Often, people who don’t live in the area consider gated communities to be only for retirees. Lotus
is changing that.
Designed by GL Homes, floor plans are spacious and luxurious, with unique modern touches. There is a huge clubhouse with a large outdoor patio, a game room, and a pool. It’s just down the street from some of the best schools in Boca Raton, and there is a guard on duty at all hours of the day to ensure residents’ safety. This is modern gated living.
