Lakewood Forest Fund Inc.
Welcome to Lakewood Forest!
On behalf of the Board of Trustees of the Lakewood Forest Fund, I would like to welcome you to the Lakewood Forest Community. Lakewood Forest is a great place to live with a low crime rate, great schools and a community that really cares about its residents. We hope that this website will provide you with some helpful information as you move into our award-winning community.
The Lakewood Forest Fund is the homeowners' association for our community. It is usually referred to as “The Fund.” The Fund is self-managed, which means that we do not pay a management company to handle our business. And, with 2,616 homes in Lakewood Forest, we are one of the largest self-managed associations in Texas. Seven volunteer Trustees, a General Manager, a part-time admin, and a part-time Compliance Administrator manage the affairs of the Fund. Trustees serve without compensation and are elected for two-year terms. The Lakewood Forest homeowners who currently serve as Trustees can be found on the Board of Directors page.
Our Trustees ask that you read and abide by your Deed Restrictions and Adopted Policies, maintain your property, and pay your yearly assessment fee when due. If you did not receive a copy of your deed restrictions at closing, you can download a copy for your section here. Please also read the Adopted Policies. Lakewood Forest is a Deed Restricted Community and these legally binding documents are very important to you. All exterior improvements require approval from the Lakewood Forest ACC Committee; please see Architectural Control for additional information.
Some of the services paid for by Lakewood Forest Fund (through your annual assessment) are listed under Services. In addition, you may view the annual budget here. Although not a part of the The Fund, Lakewood Forest is very fortunate to have active community involvement from Lakewood Forest Civic Association and the following:
Lakewood Garden Club has several planned outings throughout the year, is responsible for awarding "Yard of the Month," hosts an annual plant sale, selects seasonal flowers, and provides consultation to The Fund on various landscape projects.

Lakewood Lighting is a summer swim team that has an 8 week season from the first week of May until the last weekend in June each year. The Lightning is for families with children aged 5-18 years, you must have a current membership level in the Lakewood Residents Club to participate.

Swimmers compete in swim meets against other teams in the Northwest Aquatic League each Saturday. Summer league swimming is a "family" sport.
