Although Lake Forest is located within two miles of Coliseum Boulevard, its setting is reminiscent of the countryside inhabited by the Waltons. Roads ramble through rolling hills and trees provide sanctuary for birds and squirrels. For those residents who want to enjoy the countryside, a simple walk across the street will take them to the start of the Rivergreenway. Residents can also enjoy the adjacent Kreager Park, featuring baseball diamonds and soccer fields. In addition, Lake Forest provides its residents with space in a common garden that has underground water. That's big advantage for residents who have opted to live in an apartment community instead of a house. Apartments resemble small homes and each one has its own carport or attached garage, a unique feature of Lake Forest Apartments. The Apartment Association of Indiana has even awarded Lake Forest Apartments with "The Best Two Bedroom Floorplan in The State".
