The community's walkable town center is just a short stroll, bike ride or golf-cart ride from residents' homes. The center features several restaurants, a church, a health club and other businesses.
The community center, located next to the pool, offers restrooms with changing areas, as well as a meeting room and catering kitchen. The center also hosts plenty of social events, classes and other enrichment activities, providing residents a chance to get to know each other.
During a hot summer's day, few things are as refreshing as a swim in the crystal-blue waters of the pool. The SouthWood community offers a lap pool for fitness swimming and family swims, as well as a children's pool and water play area with a slide, climbing equipment and a splash bucket.
The SouthWood community's tennis courts overlook Central Park and Lake. Two lighted, hard-surface courts are available for play day or night.
The SouthWood community features over 1,000 acres of interconnected green space, including parks, lakes, ponds and wetlands. Residents will find parks and green spaces spread throughout the community, including the 123-acre Central Park and Central Lake, located in the heart of the development. The parks are perfect for strolling, exploring and relaxing in nature, or even dropping a fishing line in one of the lakes in hopes of snagging the "big one."
Tucked away under the branches of live oak trees and just beyond the grounds of the historical SouthWood House, are five charming cottages available for overnight stays or short-term accommodations.
