Staying active is easy in these Tampa Bay area communities

Lennar Tampa

Maintaining a fit lifestyle can be challenging, especially if you don’t have a gym or park nearby. In fact, only about one in five homes have a park, fitness, or recreation center within a half-mile of their house, according to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services.

With Lennar, many of its homes in the Tampa Bay area are in communities that promote an active lifestyle, making it even easier to make fitness a priority. Here are four communities with Lennar homes that are located among several different counties in the Tampa Bay area (Pasco, Hernando, Hillsborough, Manatee) and offer exceptional fitness amenities:

Walk for miles in Land O’Lakes

Bexley Courtyard, Lennar’s new community in Pasco County, offers homeowners the ultimate outdoor workout with a 10-mile biking and running trail by Avid Trails, which is built with fitness stations along the trail designed for solo workouts or group training. One notable station is the Push-Pull Pavilion™ that lets users do exercises like dips and pull-ups.

Other fitness amenities include access to a soccer field, fitness center, swimming pool and playground, which offers options for the entire family.

Enjoy the active waterfront lifestyle in Palmetto

Residents can experience resort-style waterfront living in Sanctuary Cove, WCI’s new community under construction in Palmetto. Homes are now for sale, and residents also have access to the community’s beach area where the entire family can play beach volleyball or Frisbee. The community has a fitness center and is also in close proximity to some of the state’s best golf courses such as Buffalo Creek Golf Course and River Wilderness Golf & Country Club.

To be active on the water, the community has more than 200 boat slips for residents to dock their boats and take a trip on the Manatee River or out to the Gulf of Mexico, where you can go deep-sea diving or fishing and enjoy other water activities.


Increase your stamina with these fitness options in Brooksville

Lennar’s homes in Southern Hills give residents a small-town feel in an elegant setting, with a private signature 18-hole Pete Dye-designed golf course.

Residents of this golf and country club community can also enjoy an extensive list of amenities for an active lifestyle including a fitness and aquatic center with a lagoon-edge pool with lap lanes and a spa to relax your muscles after a workout. The community also has lighted clay tennis courts with an on-site professional to help you improve your swing.

To top it off, residents and visitors can enjoy scenic walking trails that have elevation changes of more than 200 feet to add more cardio to your workout.

Swim and sail in a tropical Crystal Lagoon in Wimauma

Lennar’s active-adult homes and villas in Montage at Southshore Bay are a quick walk away from one of the Tampa Bay area’s first Crystal Lagoons, a 6-acre aquatic amenity with crystal-clear water where residents can swim, kayak and even use a small sailboat. The community also has other outdoor activities with miles of trails for biking and walking, and volleyball and tennis courts. If you’re looking for activities for your little ones or four-legged friends, try the community’s shaded “tot lot” or dog park.
