We are looking to relocate in the next few years and are looking into Brunswick Forest. My fiancé is now 55 and I am 45. We both love Wilmington, and Brunswick Forest looks amazing! Since we will be moving without benefit of friends and family in the area, we are looking for a neighborhood with the opportunity to meet peers with similar interests. We did see some families, and middle aged couples occasionally during the day- but the majority of people we saw were mid 60's and above. Don't get me wrong- they were definitely full of life and could probably kick my butt as far as fitness goes, lol! Just hoping to find a nice mix of people- would be very jealous if my whole neighborhood was out enjoying life while I'm still working .
The answer we seem to get is always- "well the bus comes through"- any additional info would be very helpful! Thanks

I was curious about how to find an accurate answer, not just an impression. The 2010 Census data is available online if you are patient and willing to drill down through their maps. It's here: 2010 Census Interactive Population Map

I took a populated area, bounded by Low Country Blvd on the north and south, Brunswick Forest Parkway on the east, and Leesburgh on the west. That's Census Tract 202.02, Block 1051 if you want to replicate my results.

Basically, the figures confirm your impression. Out of 106 total people, here is the breakdown by age:
Under 18 - 13
20-24 - 2
25-34 - 11
35-49 - 20
50-64 - 35
65 and over - 25

A quick summary, 60 of 106 are over 50, and 46 are under 50. I'll leave it to you to compute means, medians, or whatever. However, I would call it a nice mix of ages, considering it's mainly a retirement community. Enjoy your future home!
