Recreation is a big deal

So huge you won’t have to leave FishHawk Ranch to work out, and chances are you’ll never get bored doing it.

Your options begin with 25 miles of community trails, which wind all over FishHawk Ranch’s gently undulating terrain. The trails are raised at times, at boardwalk level, to protect vegetation and wildlife. Go for a walk, run, evening stroll or a serious bicycle ride.

You also can simply step out your front door and follow the never-ending sidewalks that link all FishHawk Ranch neighborhoods, parks, pools and green spaces. Play softball at Hawk Park or romp with your canines at Born to Run Dog Park.

Splash away in one of our community pools — they’re all over the place, by design — or take advantage of the fitness center at the Lake House. You can attack the net on our tennis courts or play team sports at the sports complex. Speaking of the Lake House…

The Lake House is literally next door to WestLake

FishHawk Ranch Lake HouseICI Homes’ custom homes are perfectly sited at WestLake for many reasons, but being near one of FishHawk Ranch’s biggest perks is more than mere gravy. You can literally walk out of your house, turn a couple of corners, and be at the Lake House. It’s WestLake’s neighbor, and one more reason to consider building or buying your dream home with us.

So what is the Lake House? It’s a community center built in the low-country, frame-construction style. You’ll find screened-in porches, a spacious fire pit, gathering rooms and a catering kitchen, that aforementioned residents’ fitness center and splendid views.

The Lake House overlooks — what else? — one of FishHawk Ranch’s western lakes. The same body of water, in fact, that borders many of the lots in WestLake. The Lake House fits neatly and unobtrusively amid groves of live oak trees, so you can always find a cool spot to pause here during a hot run. And, ICI Homes builders exercise the same careful curation of trees over at WestLake. They’re easily one of the most stunning features in this part of west Central Florida.
