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 Club is now accepting lifeguard applications.

Attached you will find a Lifeguards Wanted Ad with information on how to apply.

Spring seems to be arriving a little early this year. Please try to avoid lawn fertilizer being applied where it can easily be washed into the lake. When we get a heavy dose of fertilizer we wind up fighting larger than normal algae blooms that can result in fish kills.

When applied fertilizers should be watered into the soil.

When do you need a construction permit?

by the SLA Council

The Lake Sherwood Association Restrictions and Covenants (R&C’s) that are a part of every lot, require that we obtain a Council permit for any improvements, repairs, additions or alteration to the exterior of our homes.


While the Council is responsible for enforcing the R&C’s, it is also our goal to assist residents so they can comply with the restrictions. We do this by making permits easy to obtain, and by conducting a timely site visit by members of the Council. During this review, we may suggest alternatives to your plan that will achieve your goal while fitting within the R&Cs. The entire approval process should take less than a few days from  time of submission.


In many instances, the City-Parish also requires a building permit. Neither permit takes the place of the other.   

Below are some examples of projects that require permits from

the City-Parish, the LSA Council or both. Neither list is meant to be all inclusive. If in doubt contact the City-Parish or the LSA Council.
