Pine Forest of Oak Island is a master planned Active Living Adult Community with integrated Health & Wellness in the coastal Carolinas that offers residents a very unique amenity set. Apart from the benefits of living in the beach community of Oak Island and neighboring Southport, Pine Forest offers the Medical Campus, a future Town Center with restaurants, shops, and entertainment along with traditional amenities including a clubhouse, aquatics, and fitness center with tennis and pickleball. The active retirement community will offer many miles of running, walking, and biking trails that compliment an active lifestyle. One of the most unique aspects is the community support Farm that will offer an array of berries, produce, and more to local residents. Those living in the community can participate as much as they would like from simply observing a professionally managed farm to getting their hands dirty participating or even enjoying their own garden.
