Laurel Lakes Amenities
Large lakes and a community clubhouse showcase this property, as well as tennis courts and a fitness center. This community has reclaimed water for irrigation. As of July 2008, a new Publix shopping center was built 1/2 mile down the road from this beautiful community. Some opposed this zoning change and it took many years and numerous times to get the approval from Sarasota County Commissioners. You can also enjoy the Rothenbach park located across the street from the new Publix.
Now more businesses have moved into this commerce center and more residential communities have spawned around Laurel Lakes.
