Del Webb is known for their specialty in building active adult communities and Lakewood Ranch planners have put thought into the amenities that give this large community a small-town feel.

“Whether part of a smaller, intimate setting or large resort-style community, amenities are one way Del Webb encourages residents to realize their full potential as individuals and members of a community,” Del Webb says. “Amenities are more than buildings, pools, and fitness centers; they are invitations to make friends and explore new interests”.
