The Barkers Landing Subdivision began in 1972 under the name La Cour Du Roi, which translates to The King's Yard. It was to be a gated, single entry, private golf course community with lion statuary guarding its entrance. The original developer encountered financial problems, and within a few years Hood Development Company had bought the property and changed the name to Barkers Landing On Memorial. Barkers Landing was built in sections between 1977 and 1989, first with townhouses, then patio homes, then full-size homes.
Barkers Landing comprises three subdivisions with a total of over 400 homes: Barkers Landing, Barker Court, and Barker Place. Each entity has its own homeowners association. The three associations contribute on a pro-rata basis to maintain the common areas and support shared services.
The Barkers Landing Community Club (BLCC) is a social club for all residents. The Club requests a voluntary annual membership fee, but every resident is automatically a member whether or not she/he pays dues. The Club uses its funds to organize events and help beautify the common areas.
BLCC sponsors social events and used to publish a bimonthly bulletin. It periodically publishes a Barkers Landing Directory containing not only a listing of residents but also a wealth of useful information about the subdivision. Volunteers sustain all these neighborhood activities.
