Located among the moss draped oaks of North Central Florida, just 9 miles south of the intersection of I-10 & I-75, Cannon Creek Airpark is Florida's finest southern aviation community. While Lake City is referred to as the "Gateway to Florida" and is host to thousands of visitors to our historic State, life tends to move at a gentle pace in our town. We find time here to blend relaxation with recreation and work in therapeutic doses.
The Airpark is served by four great approaches, runway 18/36 has 3,500 paved feet and is lighted. Lights are owned and maintained voluntarily by the residents. Runway 9/27 has 2,400 feet of manicured turf. We are located on the Jacksonville Sectional and our Unicom is 123.0. We have one obstruction which is a 600-ft. tower in the SE Sector.
Home sites range in size from 1/2 to 6 acres and begin at $90,000. Homes range from modest to elaborate with an appealing mix of architectural styles, Minimum building size, restrictive covenants and architectural guidelines vary within the Airpark allowing flexibility and creativity as well as protection for property owners.
The 500+ acres of Cannon Creek are blessed with average temperatures in the 80's in summer and low to mid 50's in winter, offering an enjoyable change of season. Any time of year, you can spend an afternoon with a picnic under our majestic oaks beside a babbling creek or hangar flying while working on your most recent aviation project (an open hangar door is the same as an open invitation for neighbors around here).
Golf and tennis are but a walk away when you want to take a break from hangar flying or "the real thing" and the abundance of moss draped rivers and open lakes make fishing or boating a year-round event.
Cannon Creek is one mile from shopping and restaurants which include all your national chain favorites as well as quaint, local shops and eateries. Antiquing at its best can be found in Lake City and nearby High Springs. If country living with big city convenience is your desire, then you will find Gainesville & Jacksonville within a one-hour drive. Lake City also boasts one of the finest Veterans Hospitals in the country in addition to two other outstanding medical facilities. Banks, churches, schools and museums are also only a mile or so away.
Here at Cannon Creek, we have plenty of friendly help from our resident aviation enthusiasts for even your most ambitious projects. Pilot and mechanic qualifications are as varied in the Airpark as are the aircraft. From Ultra-Lights to the occasional King Air, there is always a lot of flying, good food and conversation (especially at Fly-In Breakfasts the first Saturday morning of each month).
We want to meet you. Give us a call, or better yet, come see us! We have on-site accommodations available.
