If you were looking for an adult living community when the COVID-19 outbreak occurred, there’s a good chance you don’t know where to turn. You’re not alone. Many families are in the same situation, but Cecil Pines is here to help you. Cecil Pines is continuing to move in new residents, following all health and safety protocols. We are proud that our residents feel secure, comfortable, and fulfilled during these uncertain times. We are making sure that our residents are staying mentally, physically and socially engaged, and connected to their loved ones. We’re combining our best safety protocols with our creativity, ingenuity, and expertise to serve our residents and bring them joy, even in this fluid and unprecedented situation. Please reach out today to schedule a virtual or in-person tour. Let us show you why living at Cecil Pines, even during the pandemic, may be the best choice for you.

A warm welcome to you.


Independent Living

People come to Cecil Pines to experience independent senior living in an inspiring natural setting. We take care of the important but mundane tasks like yard work and home maintenance. Instead, you can focus on enjoying the natural beauty, exploring the surrounding Jacksonville area, or taking part in the many social events that take place every day right on campus.

Call us today to schedule an in-person or virtual tour. Our in-person tours follow all local health and safety protocols.

Our spacious homes are ready for move-in.


Cecil Pines residences are all one-story single-family or duplex homes. We are a gated access community unique from other retirement communities in Jacksonville in that all of our residences are spacious homes, not apartments, each with its own carport, patio and yard. We have two distinctive floor plans available. Visit our Floor Plans and Pricing page today.
