Our community is home to a vibrant mix of more than 8,000 residents—entrepreneurs, volunteers, proud grandparents, and world travelers.
A significant number of residents worked in local, state, and federal government, the international sector, or area universities. We also have a healthy representation of business owners and military veterans. The population is diverse —some remain focused on their careers, while many are long retired.
Almost every state in the nation is represented. Leisure World homeowners hail from near and far:
Rosemary Banda recently moved from Massachusetts to be near her daughter who lives in Washington and is starting a family. “She wanted us to come help out with the babies. Leisure World was recommended by my daughter. She felt that it would be the best place,” Rosemary said. “It’s safe and it’s lovely.”
Lee Jones initially rented at Leisure World, living at Creekside for two years before buying a home in The Greens.
For the convenience and his health, Charles Stewart chose Leisure World. “My knees are going bad, so I do water aerobics. My wife and I are both enjoying the heck out if it,” he said.
“I left New York City and moved directly to Leisure World,” said Angel Griffith, a mental health professional. She makes edible art—decorated cake pops in creative displays—that attracted a lot of interest at our recent community flea market. Angel said she is looking forward to sharing her art “while meeting and making many new friends.”
Leisure World celebrated its 50th anniversary in September 2016. The occasion marked a milestone, recognizing the enduring value and beauty of our community along with the invaluable role residents have played over the decades in creating its culture.
