This unique, pet-friendly community is tucked away in a relaxed country atmosphere and offers a variety of amenities, such as tennis, pickleball, shuffleboard, a heated pool and outdoor spa, a billiards room, a fitness center, and much more.

Special care has been taken to preserve the natural environment here at Walden Shores, which is located on the banks of the 7,532-acre Lake Walk-In-Water (Weohyakapka). The lake has a boat ramp and fishing pier, and the fishermen praise the excellent fishing.

The white sand beaches of both the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean are within 75 miles. Our central location allows opportunities to easily explore surrounding cities – Tampa, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Naples, Vero Beach, Orlando, Dayton, etc. Or, you can enjoy the calm, quiet day-to-day life of Lake Wales. Locally, we have the Bok Tower Gardens, numerous beautiful lakes, State Park & Trails, restaurants, and small-town parades and events.

There are also excellent medical facilities nearby. The Advent Health – Lake Wales provides comprehensive care in a warm, caring environment. Staffed by a team of skilled professionals, this hospital also has a women’s wellness center and an extended care facility. Additionally, there is a 24-hour, manned EMS station less than a mile away.

Family-owned and Operated since 1967, Rickert Properties believes that each resident is important in a successful manufactured home community.

The tremendous financial strength, coupled with expert management makes each Rickert community a winner.
