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 40 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.

Information from 2013 Annual Meeting

After requests from several residents to initiate a program to upgrade and standardize our house number signs your Progress LSA Committee decided to take on the challenge.  The campaign is now underway. 

If you don’t have a clearly visible house number on your home this opportunity to participate in our House Number Sign Campaign might be for you.  All of the signs are custom made from cast aluminum with a bronze background and gold trim and numbers.  They can be fastened to your home or mounted on stakes in a flower bed or on the lawn.  Because they are so well made they will no doubt last a very long time.

The signs are available from Hart Mailboxes, the same company that we worked with to upgrade our mailboxes last year.  By the way, the mailboxes are still available if you put off buying one.

To order a sign call:

Lee Hart  at Hart Mailboxes

13030 Coursey Blvd

Baton Rouge, LA 70816       

(225) 756-8277

Please see below for prices and specifications.  If you prefer a different style that is fine, our goal is to have every house in Lake Sherwood Acres clearly identified with an attractive house number sign.  Since each sign is custom made it takes about a month to get them.

If you have any questions please contact Dick Hevey at:  rhevey@bellsouth.net

Our Lake is the Most Unique Amenity of Lake Sherwood Acres

and we spend a lot of time and money trying to maintain its beauty and health for all to enjoy.  You can help us maintain it by making sure your yard maintenance crews do not blow grass clippings into the street.  The clippings are eventually washed into the storm sewers which, in most cases, lead directly into our lake.  On any given day we see a lot of grass clippings floating on the lake's surface.  This additional organic matter builds up in the lake and eventually rots.  As it rots it consumes oxygen which harms the fish and the lake's general health.  It also contributes to the build-up of silt, slowly making the lake shallower.

 As it turns out the City has an Ordinance prohibiting this as noted below.

 So, you should tell your yard maintainance crew about the Ordinance and ask them to abide by it.

  Sec. 6:430. - Sweeping litter into gutters prohibited.

No person shall sweep into or deposit in any gutter, street or other public place within the city-parish the accumulation of litter from any building or lot or from any public or private sidewalk or driveway. Persons owning or occupying property shall keep the sidewalk in front of their premises free of litter.

(City Code 1951, Title 6, § 430; Parish Code 1962, Title 6, § 430)
