Who We Are

Lake Sherwood Acres  is a "well-kept secret" of 312 homes located between S. Sherwood Forest and Coursey Boulevards.  There are 81 homes built along the shores of a  20 acre lake, as well as 231 homes that are located off the lake.  The neighborhood was developed by Victor Coursey in 1974 when this area was considered far out from down town. Part of the draw for this neighborhood is the 25 meter swimming pool and large clubhouse, as well as the many, well maintained green common areas and private lake.

Sherwood Lake Association Purpose

The Sherwood Lake Association Articles of Incorporation state that the association "is a non-profit corporation organized under the laws of the State of Louisiana, for the purpose of, among other things, owning, preserving, maintaining and regulation for the use of its members the lake shown on the official plat of Lake Sherwood Acres Subdivision..."

Where are we located?

Please be aware that the Lake Sherwood Acres Restrictions and Covenants and  Baton Rouge City Ordinance No. 10669 passed on August 14, 1996, requires all sellers to furnish the buyers of their property a copy of all deed and building restrictions affecting that property. Additionally, all dues must be paid in full prior to the sale of any property and a written “Paid in Full” Invoice must be presented at the closing.

Lake Sherwood Amenities

Sometimes we forget that Lake Sherwood Acres has many amenities that have withstood the deterioration that accompanies many older subdivisions. Our lake and grounds are in excellent shape, and the Club is an active beehive of activity for the summer and throughout the year with frequent use for meetings, complimentary resident functions and rentals.

Storm Debris Pickup



Posted on: July 18, 2019

City-Parish to Begin Storm Debris Removal Operations July 22 BATON ROUGE, LA Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome announced that City-Parish crews are nearing completion with their survey of curbside storm debris following Hurricane Barry, with debris removal operations set to begin Monday, July 22.


Based on the initial findings from the surveys, it is believed that there is still more storm debris to be moved curbside. This start date is intended to provide residents with adequate time to identify any storm debris on their property and move it curbside. City-Parish officials encourage residents to clean up as quickly as possible.


"While we feel blessed that Hurricane Barry did not impact our community in the ways it was initially forecast, I will continue being proactive in responding to the needs of our citizens from the effects of the storm," said Mayor-President Broome. "We moved with a great degree of urgency in both activating our storm debris contract and in evaluating the level of storm debris in our community, and now we will continue that posture in ensuring the removal of storm debris."


Debris removal services will include all residential locations within the City of Baton Rouge and unincorporated areas of East Baton Rouge Parish.


Debris removal crews will be dispatched throughout Baton Rouge, and efforts will remain ongoing until all storm debris has been collected. Residents do not need to contact the City-Parish once their debris is placed curbside. City-Parish environmental specialists and debris monitors will be regularly assessing curbside debris removal needs and directing crews accordingly for collection.


City-Parish officials are strongly urging residents to place their storm debris curbside in accordance with the diagram below to ensure efficient collection. Storm debris should be clearly separated from regular garbage piles, such as household waste, which will be collected as part of regular City-Parish garbage and recycling collection services.


All storm debris should be placed as close to the curbside as possible - taking special care to not place debris or trash under electrical lines or near a water meter vault, fire hydrant, or any other above-ground utilities.


As a reminder, contractors hired by residents for storm debris removal, or renovations due to storm-related damages, are required under City-Parish ordinances to remove any storm debris from the premises. Residents are urged to ensure they are hiring licensed contractors, and the removal of any resulting storm debris is included in their contract.
