If you're looking for a family-oriented community that's got a lot to offer, you should certainly take the time to look into homes for sale at Fishhawk Ranch, one of the more sought-after spots in Hillsborough County.
When I say “family-oriented”, I'm probably understating things; a sunny day at one of Fishhawk Ranch's water parks is a busy mix of young and old enjoying the aquatic centers, and the 25 miles of walking trails are well-used (if uncrowded). It feels like a close-knit community, because it really is; every Friday and Saturday night there are festivals at the town square, well-attended with a lot of familiar faces. And the tennis club is as much a social organization as it is a fitness one; from competitions you can watch from the bleachers, to the Ladies' League events, to private lessons for all ages, the tennis program is just one of many aspects of Fishhawk Ranch that speak to the neighborhood feel of the development.
Fishhawk Ranch was designed by the same developer as the MiraBay and Waterset developments, Newland Communities; it sits on a little more than 3,000 acres of master-planned land, and was named by the Florida Green Building Coalition as the first “green” community in Hillsborough County (and the largest in the greater Tampa region). In addition to the 1,300 acres of open space that include wildlife habitats and preserved (or restored) wetlands, the development reclaims storm water for its central irrigation system — and utilizes an assortment of drought-resistant trees and plants for its attractive landscaping, making it also one of Tampa's more sustainable neighborhoods.
The Fishhawk County Sports Complex was built with four football/soccer fields and eight baseball diamonds, all made available not just to Fishhawk Ranch residents but also to youth participating in sports programs throughout this part of Hillsborough County. Picnic shelters and concession buildings mean parents and fans are kept comfortable while the kids build memories (and character) on the field.
Fishhawk Ranch is served by schools either inside or just outside the community. A multitude of shopping and dining experiences are within walking or biking distance of nearly every home. And if you're a member of the military, in particular stationed at MacDill AFB, there's something just for you. Homes for sale in Fishhawk Ranch are serviced by a special HART (Hillsborough Area Regional Transit) Commuter Express shuttle that can transport anyone who works at MacDill to and from the base — so they can relax, read, drink a cup of coffee and let someone else drive and handle the traffic of the morning commute.
