The Lakes At Boca one of West Boca’s best neighborhoods

The Lakes and The Shores At Boca Raton were clearly on the forefront of West Boca’s transformation from farm lands to a residential destination for families seeking a quality lifestyle.
This community began development in the late 1980s and rapidly became one of the trend-setting neighborhoods that spurred the development of shopping centers, the construction of many new schools, and the opening of numerous parks.
Multiple Home Selections
The original developer, Centex, envisioned a community with multiple housing types, including single-family estates, town homes, and zero lot line homes. Today, that combination has stood the test of time as “The Lakes” and its neighbor, “The Shores”, remain one of the most popular re-sale communities along the State Road 7 corridor. It is located west of State Road 7 on Yamato Road.
In addition to the varied home selections, The Lakes features meandering roadways, expansive lakes, and a recreation center with exercise facility, pool, tot lot, billiard room, and tennis/basketball courts. With more than 600 homes, it has pretty much something for everyone. Today, home prices range from the high $200,000s to the high $500,000s.
The Shores: A guard-gated option
Adjacent to The Lakes, is The Shores, a guard-gated community with 330 single family homes with up to 4,000 square feet. Prices range from the high $200,000s to the mid $500,000s.
Families find that one major attraction is the proximity to high-rated rated schools, including Sunrise Park Elementary, Eagles Landing Middle School, West Boca High School, and Olympic Heights High School. In addition, just down the road is South County Regional Park, boasting an amphitheater that host concerts, soccer/softball fields, Osprey Point Golf Course, bike trails, and much more.
