Community Overview

With an impressive amount of preserved land and park space, discover miles of freshwater canals, well-stocked fishing lakes, tennis, horseback riding, hiking and biking trails, and three immaculate golf courses.

The essence of Southwest Florida is often measured by the amount of open space to play on. If that's the case, the landscape here speaks for itself. Built as the first retirement community in Florida after World War II, Lehigh Acres serves as the residential base for much of the county. Past the subdivisions you’ll find a rural charm, and Alva, the oldest settlement in the area.

Start a day of leisure here on the fairway with 18 holes at Mirror Lakes Golf Club before biting into Cuban cuisine for lunch at Melody’s Cuban Cafe, or a boxed picnic lunch from Rib City Grill.

Celebrate the outdoors even more at Caloosahatchee Regional Park in Alva. There, a walk down shaded Palmetto Path puts anyone in a natural state of mind along the famed river of the Calusa Indians.
