Woodland Park and The Oaks at Woodland Park are highly desirable deed-restricted, communities that feature a heavily wooded private setting on winding roads. They are are located off McIntosh Road just north of Bahia Vista Street in Central Sarasota. Access to both is by way of the dead-end Woodview Drive, which is a real plus as the only traffic is local only to the subdivision. Known for a quiet, wooded setting tucked away amongst mature towering oaks trees and meandering streets, Woodland Park is truly a special place. Many of the homes will have large lanais that open to a pool.

The Oaks at Woodland Park was the add on to Woodland Park. Located at the end of Woodview Street, this section of newer homes is the ultimate in privacy.

Construction wrapped up in 2003 with 75 homes being built. The homes are all concrete block construction with stucco and will be between 2,100 to over 3,500 square feet. Designs are modern with high ceilings, open floor plans, bright kitchens and large inviting master suites. Just about everything you would expect in a Florida home today.
