Weems Plantation and the Gardens of Weems were developed off Weems Road from the late 1990s to the early 2000s.
The neighborhood is located between East Mahan Drive and Capital Circle Southeast. The neighborhood is enclosed, meaning that the two entrances are the only exits. The development is surrounded by conservation property.
There are currently 373 homes in the community. The homes are of similar construction; some have brick fronts and some have stucco fronts. Residents take pride in their landscaping and horticulture talents, as evident in the abundant foliage.
Weems has very friendly neighbors from many different cultures. Residents greet and visit with each other as they are walking in the community and enjoying the quiet residential setting.
The neighborhood has an egg hunt in the spring and a pizza party for the children in the summer. In the fall, all residents are invited to participate in the Oktoberfest that is usually a big hit.
There is also a variety of events throughout the year, including community garage sales, neighborhood trick-or-treating, and a holiday party.
And, a short distance away is the expansive Tom Brown Park, which gives residents many more options for recreation, team sports, trails and enjoying the outdoors.
In 2012, Weems won the city of Tallahassee’s Neighborhood of the Year in the Large Neighborhood category. This was in recognition of the many events and accomplishments that have been beneficial to the neighborhood.
The award also acknowledges the efforts of the Weems Plantation Homeowners Association, which is governed by a board of volunteers who are property owners in the neighborhood.
The board schedules the events and recruits volunteers from the community and surrounding schools (for volunteer hours), and to participate and assist in hosting the events.
