Founder's Square Welcomes You
Founder’s Square is the social hub of Babcock Ranch. It’s a central gathering place for neighbors and guests and the site of events and celebrations. Located along Lake Babcock, it is the northern end of a downtown district that will stretch southward as the town grows.A 13-acre lakefront green space anchors the district and features a band shell, boardwalk, splash pad, picnic tables, and shady areas for relaxing. From morning exercise classes out in the square to brisk business at the lakefront “Table & Tap”, Founder’s Square buzzes with daily activity. Live music is featured at the band shell every Tuesday and Saturday evening.
Inside the first civic building, Woodlea Hall, visitors gather information or gear up for outdoor adventures at Curry Creek Outfitters. Soon, you’ll be able to meet a friend for coffee at Slater’s Goods & Provisions, enjoy an ice cream with the kids at Square Scoops, or host a meeting upstairs at The Hatchery, our collaborative work space. Babcock Neighborhood School will welcome its first students August 2017, and our state-of-the-art health and wellness center will open in 2018.

Table & Tap is the first restaurant to open its doors at Babcock Ranch! Lunch and dinner menus have something for every taste – from the signature T&T Burger to a roasted beet salad – all crafted from the freshest, local-sourced ingredients to provide a gourmet farm-to-table dining experience.
