Pet Friendly Communities

Pets add comfort, joy, companionship, and fun to our lives and enrich our everyday with unconditional love and loyalty. When beginning your retirement search and selecting a 55+ community, it is important to do your research and learn whether or not your loved one can call the community home as well. We at Cypress Creek Village and Winter Haven Oaks understand the importance of your furry loved ones and welcome them into our communities!


We asked our residents to share photos and videos of their pets and they delivered! Check out the above video to see what life can be like with your furry buddies!


Our communities are located in Winter Haven, FL, a popular retirement spot largely due to its amazing location and Central Florida weather. Besides the obvious benefits of glorious weather day in and day out, a great perk for you and your buddy is that you will find numerous pet friendly establishments in this city that offer outdoor seating! Enjoy the Florida sun and laid back lifestyle at home with your best friend and out and about on the town as well!
