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?

We are located east of  S. Sherwood Forest Boulevard and north of Coursey Boulevard. Click Here for a map of the area and of the actual  neighborhood.

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. Contact the treasurer well in advance of the closing for a copy of the Invoice.

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.

Last updated 2/11/19

*SLA President's Message **
by Mike Hayes*

Dear Fellow Residents:

 The Lake Sherwood Acres (LSA) annual meeting was held on January 22, 2019.

The turnout for the meeting was good and was up a bit from last year. I presume that those of you that missed the meeting did so as you were pleased with how the Subdivision and Club are being led.

In this meeting, the 2019 Budget and the related assessments were approved with a 97% favorable vote. This is up from last year's rate of 94%. While that sounds great, we only had 188 votes cast in the assessment election. Last year we had 178 votes cast. This means that an average for the last two years of 183 votes made the decision for the 313 lot owners in Lake Sherwood Acres. In previous years we would get a higher voting ratio. In the last 10 years the average has been 40.3% for the voter turnout. It would be great if those that did not vote would let us know if we are doing what our residents really want done.

Following the election for the assessments, the elections for the two LSA Board of Directors were held. Both Boards had their proposed slate of Board members elected. The Club had two write-in individuals elected to fill the two open positions that were listed on the ballot. I am certain that the 2019 Board Members for both Boards appreciate your support in their election.

We look forward for a positive year in 2019. Please feel free to let

these individuals know how you see the Subdivision and Club are meeting your needs.
