Located in northwest Ocala, just off of I-75, Ocala Palms is the smaller, more tight-knit alternative to some of Marion County’s larger active adult communities. It’s the perfect 55+ community in Ocala for retirees and empty nesters who are looking for a downsized, low-maintenance lifestyle while also having access to the amenities of a major country club. Plus, this welcoming community has regular events, meaning you’ll be able to make friends, socialize, and get out of the house regularly (as long as that’s what you’d like to do!)

An Unbeatable Location
The Ocala Palms community is tucked away among sprawling live oaks and rolling hills on northwest Highway 27. Right across the highway from the main entrance on Highway 27 is a major shopping center that includes a Publix, several restaurants, a GNC vitamin and health food outlet, and a UPS store. Ocala Palms residents have the privacy of horse country living without having to sacrifice everyday conveniences, or travel far for fine dining and local events. Its quiet countryside location obscures the fact that it’s right off of I-75, giving residents quick and easy access to Ocala proper and the rest of Central Florida.
Either coast is about an hour away, meaning beach access can be as often as you’d like. Both Orlando and Tampa are under two-hours away, giving access to international airports for world-wide travel, top-tier shopping experiences, tourist attractions, more. Closer to home, Gainesville is just a short drive away and offers college football fans a gateway to watch some of their favorite teams! Ocala is also home to several equestrian venues with shows all year long, a robust arts community, and several medical facilities.
The Golf-Club Lifestyle
While it’s not as sprawling as some of Ocala’s other active adult communities, Ocala Palms has every luxurious amenity you expect from a community centered on golf and country club living. Ocala Palms offers a 72-par, 18-hole course featuring well-manicured fairways, scenic waterfalls, and mature, mossy oaks. There is also a well-stocked pro-shop, a driving range, putting green, and lessons available from a PGA professional instructor. The community’s other numerous amenities include:
- Indoor & Outdoor pools
- Sun deck
- Fitness Center
- Arts & Crafts studio
- Sewing studio

- 6 Bocce Ball courts
- 6 Shuffleboard courts

And that’s just the beginning! There are also numerous clubs at Ocala Palms, all organized and managed by the residents themselves. At Ocala Palms, you can join like-minded groups with a passion for:
- Bunco, Poker, and Bridge
- Books and Literature
- Arts & Crafts
- Social groups like Lunch Clubs, Singles Clubs, and more!
One of the advantages of choosing a smaller Ocala active adult community means that many of the homes available also feature gorgeous views of the manicured golf course. Square footage in Ocala Palms ranges from 1,050 to 2,654 square feet with two to three bedrooms, two to three bathrooms, and two to two-and-a-half-car garages. Being an older community, constructed in the early 90s, the landscaping for most homes is mature and fully grown-in, giving many lawns the classic horse country look with tall, shady oaks and vibrant green grass. From the fairway to the foyer, Ocala Palms is focused on tranquil countryside living combined with country club luxury.
