Lafayette Oaks, located in beautiful Tallahassee, FL, is a gated residential neighborhood of approximately 350 homes. The neighborhood was founded in 1971 and is located on the historic Lafayette Land Grant — the large grant of land deeded to the Marquis de Lafayette by the United States Congress in appreciation for his assistance during the Revolutionary War.
Our neighbors enjoy rolling hills, stately oak trees, and a country atmosphere on the outskirts of town. Tallahassee is also home to the State Capitol, Florida State University (FSU), Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU) and Tallahassee Community College (TCC). Our neighborhood is close to shopping, restaurants, movie theaters, hospitals, and has easy access to the interstate.
Lafayette Oaks offers many amenities, such as a neighborhood park, pool with sunshade, community center, tennis court, and a beautiful little island with rope swing. Our neighbors gather frequently for social events such as; trunk or treat, Easter egg hunts, back to school picnic/pool party and play dates at the park. Communitywide bi-annual neighborhood garage/yard sales are promoted.
