About

Advent Christian Village at Dowling Park

A rich heritage. A bright future. A special place.



Advent Christian Village at Dowling Park is a unique intergenerational community with a rich heritage and a dynamic future. Founded in 1913, Advent Christian Village is the oldest retirement community in Florida. But don't let our age fool you, we are dedicated to remaining on the leading edge, providing quality, comprehensive services with compassion — and that commitment drives everything we do. We are located on 1,200 breathtaking acres of woodlands and scenic landscapes overlooking the historic Suwannee River. In this special place, Advent Christian Village members enjoy enduring friendships, a sense of security, a continuum of care, country living with the conveniences and charm of a small town — and the unique spirit of a warm, caring community. Advent Christian Village does not charge an entrance fee.
