Downtown Babcock Ranch
Founder’s Square is the social hub of Babcock Ranch. It’s a central gathering place for neighbors and guests and the site of community events, music, and celebrations for all ages. Located along the edge of Lake Babcock, it is the northern end of a downtown district that will stretch southward as the town grows.
There’s always something going on at Babcock Ranch! We host a variety of weekly, quarterly and annual events to keep you active, connected to nature and entertained. Live music at Table & Tap, Moonlight Hikes, and holiday-themed events are just a few of the fun things we have planned. We invite you to explore our events calendar, where you can stay up-to-date on all fun events scheduled in Founder’s Square and throughout Babcock Ranch.
