You’ll Never Run Out of Things to Do
Babcock Ranch is an ideal place for those who enjoy the outdoors. Residents have access to hiking, biking, swimming, fishing, wildlife watching, golfing, and more.
With more than 50 miles of trails, there are plenty of options for nature walks. Hike our trails, launch a kayak at Founder’s Square, catch and release some fish in one of our lakes, or work on your fitness in our Lee Health’s Healthy Life Center. All of this is a walkable distance from everywhere in Babcock Ranch.
New Technology Is Around Every Corner
Babcock Ranch is a leader in technological innovation and our homes are built with technology and sustainability in mind.
In fact, we have the largest solar-plus-storage system operating in the United States, and our town is powered by solar through a partnership with FPL.
In addition to that, once you set foot within Babcock Ranch, you’ll have access to free Wi-Fi all throughout the town. Through our CenturyLink partnership, all homes are equipped with gigabit access, allowing you to work from home or stream content with ease.
Sustainability Is Ingrained in Our Lifestyle
We’ve made a greener way of life effortless and affordable. This way, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your children will inherit a little bit of paradise that is just as beautiful and pristine as when you first moved in.
Every home at Babcock Ranch receives a Bronze Standard of Certification or higher from the Florida Green Building Coalition and we work hard to conserve the area around us through water conservation, responsible land planning and development, and harnessing renewable energy.
We believe “home” is about a sense of community. At Babcock Ranch, we offer endless opportunities to develop relationships and connect with the great outdoors. Residents can grow their veggies, herbs, and more in our community garden, and the area’s shops and restaurants offer hometown vibes.
