Timbercreek is a community of single-family homes located in Boca Raton Florida between I-95 and the Florida Turnpike.

Its homes are much sought after and spend very little time on the market – selling quickly, sometimes over listing price, with competition between buyers.

Timbercreek is a Boca Raton community that covers almost 130 acres and holds 312 homes. It has canals on the south and east sides as well as three lakes. One of the lakes has a island free from any construction. Through its history Timbercreek has remained an ungated community, with the Timbercreek HOA governing the common areas and aesthetics of the architecture and landscaping.
The center of the community features a private park, intended for residents only, called Timbercreek Park where there’s a pavilion, playground, basketball court and small wooden dock that extends out into the lake. Paved paths adjacent to the lakes and large sidewalks make walking and biking around the community a popular activity for residents. The road that serves as the major artery through the community runs east-west from the St. Andrews entrance as 29th St but turns into 24th Ave as it makes the turn in front of the community’s private park. This main road features live oak trees that have gotten very large since being planted decades ago. This main road through Timbercreek has no driveways or homes facing it like homes in Millpond or homes in New Floresta, so it gives the community a more quiet, more natural, uncrowded aesthetic. Slash pines tower over some of the lots and give the community shade and a signature appearance, staying true the community’s name.

Timbercreek has one park that’s a private island. Bordered by water, only accessible via a wooden boardwalk, this residents-only area makes Timbercreek unique among Boca Raton communities. Cypress and banyan trees are surrounded by ferns, leaving grassy areas great for walking pets. When leaving the island you might think you see a giant lizard blocking your path out, but don’t worry, that’s just a stump of a banyan.
Timbercreek is only 3.6 miles from the ocean and 11 minutes away from the beach by car. The closest beach is at Spanish River Blvd and A1A, a 90 minute walk covering 4.4 miles.

There’s also a dog park to the east, on the other side of Military Trail. A more recently opened park called the Pondhawk Natural Area sits nearby the Spanish River Library and is a wonderful place to experience this area’s natural biological zone. Timbercreek is just far enough from the ocean to stay sunny through most days even when summer brings afternoon storms that make afternoons more rainy farther out west.
