Take a tour of Leisure Lake, a well-established, friendly community and a great place to live in Foley Alabama, the gateway to the beautiful white beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. Foley is located about a hour south of Mobile.
Owners enjoy complimentary, private amenities, including a clubhouse, heated, inground swimming pool, pickleball court, and an 8-acre spring-fed lake with a gazebo that provides a leisurely place to catch a sunset, and plenty of good fishing.
The neighborhood has large, manicured common areas and mature trees. Early spring mornings, the area is alive with songbirds. There are “resident” herons along the bank, and often a turtle swimming or sunning. There’s a variety of activity at the clubhouse, including social groups, cards and board games, as well as community monthly get-togethers and carry-in dinners.
Acreage the subdivision sits on was originally an undeveloped, privately owned parcel with a small, spring fed pond. In about 1998, the tract was purchased by a developer who envisioned a new community for Foley. Ground was broken and the pond was enlarged and landscaped to provide the beautiful recreational lake with shore-front properties of today.
Later, the clubhouse was built, and the pool and surrounding activity area completed, with a shuffleboard court, pickleball and horseshoes. Prior to the clubhouse, neighbors gathered under a large pecan tree in the east common area to socialize and keep cool, and picked wild blackberries. It had a firepit, and they roasted marshmallows on chilly nights. The pecan tree still stands today.
There are several landscaped common areas within the community, and three private entrances - 198 single family homes surrounding the large lake. There are four streets - Tranquil Lane, Placid Drive, Respite Drive and Lake South Drive.
