Ocala Palms

Ocala Palms is a gated active adult community located on North Highway 27 in Ocala, Florida. This 55+ community was developed by Venture & Associates and is nestled in the heart of horse country, yet Ocala Palms features convenient access to I-75. Gentle rolling hills as well as golf and country club-style living are at its best in Ocala Palms.

Ocala Palms was constructed during the mid 1990s. As a result, the community offers an ideal blend of up-to-date floor plans within a community that has a well-established neighborhood, mature landscaping, and close-knit neighbors. Many active adult homebuyers are attracted to this mid-sized community because it offers all of the luxuries of active adult living without the large crowds and on-going construction.

Ocala Palms Amenities

Although Ocala Palms is a relatively small active adult community when compared to some of the mega-retirement communities nearby, there is nothing undersized about its 19,000 square-foot clubhouse. A fitness center, indoor pool, arts and crafts studio, card room, multi-purpose room, sewing studio, billiards room, table tennis, and a library that provide plenty of space for recreation, relaxation and activities. Blanca's Cafe makes a convenient stop for meeting up with your friends and neighbors over lunch or dinner. The Magnolia ballroom also serves as a great space where residents can gather for meetings, parties, and events. For your out of town guests, RV Parking is available for a small fee.

Residents have spectacular outdoor amenities as well. Active adults can swim in the outdoor pool, lounge on the sundeck, soak in the spa, or play at one of the tennis, bocce ball, and shuffleboard courts. There is also a horseshoe pit, volleyball court, and croquet lawn that keeps residents active with friendly competition in any of these sports.

The 18-hole Ocala Palms Golf Course is one of the premier courses in central Florida. The 6,500-yard, par-72 course provides a formidable challenge for golfers of all skill levels. It boasts magnificent oaks, sparkling ponds, gorgeous waterfalls and magnificent rolling fairways. Golfers can also practice on the driving range and putting green so they can step up their golf game skills.

Ocala Palms Reviews (2)

Average Rating for this Community

Ocala Palms is an A+ community. Golf course is well maintained. Too many other amenities to list. Blanca's cafe is a well visited place for a good meal and entertainment. Residents are friendly and helpful. Homes are good quality and well maintained. Daily and monthly activities for all.


Ocala Palms feels like home. The neighbors are friendly, the houses are well-maintained and reasonably priced. People care about keeping the community nice. We also like that it's a complete community (no more construction going on). We play bingo and bocce, horseshoes, poker and go on some of the trips with our friends. It's been fun trying new things and meeting so many good people.
