The Great Outdoors

The Great Outdoors at Babcock Ranch

Babcock Ranch is a sustainable town in the making and we’re open to anyone to come explore. Kayak or canoe in one of our lakes or take a stroll on the boardwalk in front of Table & Tap. Cast a line from our fishing dock by Lake Babcock or take a hike (or bike!) on one of our nature trails (our trail system will eventually reach 50 miles). Our natural amenities make Babcock Ranch a wonderful place for everyone to enjoy.

Hiking Trails

Once you’re ready to step away from the hustle and bustle of Founder’s Square, feel free to enjoy the many trails we have to offer. We have diverse trail types that are suitable for people of all ages and activity levels that are also bike-friendly. It’s the start of a trail network extending over 50 miles once completed.

Babcock Ranch is a popular location for visitors and residents of all ages to cast their lines for some freshwater catch and release fishing. Lake Babcock is home to many fish species including Black Crappie, Largemouth Bass, Florida Gar, Blue Tilapia and Spotted Bass.

Dog Park

Need a place to enjoy outdoor time with your favorite pup? Stop by our dog park where you can mingle with other dog-lovers while your furry friend gets their daily exercise.

Kid’s Playground

We think technology is the way of the future, but we also believe that play is incredibly important to a child’s social and physical development. Each Babcock Ranch neighborhood has access to a good, old-fashioned place just for kids (or for the kids at heart) to play and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine.

Community Garden in Lake Timber Neighborhood

Farm-to table is not just a trend for us – it’s a lifestyle.  Our community garden provides space for residents to grow their own veggies, herbs and more. Our restaurant is modeled after farm-to-table dining and we want our residents to be able to have their own farm-to-table experience, too.
