Welcometo the neighborhood!
Waterleaf is a gorgeous 607 home community located in the East Arlington area of Jacksonville, Florida. Waterleaf is convenient to everything as we are 7.5 miles from the beautiful Jacksonville Beaches, 9 miles to Naval Station Mayport, and 12.5 miles from downtown Jacksonville. Onsite amenities include a sparkling blue swimming pool, children's waterpark, basketball courts, and kids playground. We have 12 ponds nestled throughout the community and two quiet walking paths through our very own nature preserves. Waterleaf is a spectacular place to call home!

Good evening neighbors. Below is an excerpt from the official JSO report regarding the recent home burglary in the 500 block of Candlebark. Please, if you are a victim of a crime report it immediately. If you see anything that appears suspicious or out of the ordinary, report it. The smallest thing could be huge. Thanks!
“The victim reported the burglary the following morning after the incident and the victim stated that they may have left their garage door open during the night while they slept. According to the report, someone inside the burglarized home observed a tall male with hair walking out of the residence with items. As a result of the time of night and low visibility, a clear description was unable to be given. According to the report, the vehicle in the garage was also burglarized, with several items taken from both the home and vehicle.”
A home burglary was reported in the 500 block of Candlebark today. The burglary occurred during the night while the residents were at home. No one was physically injured. Please take extra precautions. If you have home surveillance that you think could assist JSO please contact the HOA board. Thanks and be safe!
We are all sharing this time and place together, so it behooves us all to be mindful and considerate neighbors of each other. If you own a pet, please be mindful of the laws put in place by the City of Jacksonville. In short, pet owners must pick up solid wastes from their pets and maintain control of their animal, typically by means of a leash. We’ve provided easy access bagging stations throughout the neighborhood. With that said, any issue that a resident has with another, in regards to a pet, be it noise, poop or restraint, please contact Animal Control, Jax non-emergency or file a complaint with the city of Jacksonville. This is their jurisdiction and does not involve the Homeowners Association. Please read the “Covenants and Restrictions” document you all agreed to when purchasing a home in Waterleaf. This will better help you understand what the HOA is charged with enforcing.
Lastly, please do not take on the responsibility of another life (pet) if you cannot immediately and in the foreseeable future care for the animal. We have several feral cats residing in Waterleaf and pet abandonment is not only sad, cruel, it is also against the law.
