FishHawk Ranch, an award-winning, Tampa-area master-planned community in southeast Hillsborough County, has become a truly established hometown with a spirit all its own.
New traditions are taking hold in each of the neighborhoods and throughout the community as residents come together at a myriad of social events and recreational activities.
FishHawk Ranch has received national and statewide environmental and planning awards for its efforts to save and preserve trees during design, development and construction. These honors include a Grand Award from the National Arbor Day Foundation as the nation's top master-planned community, a Community Design Award of Excellence in Environmental Projects from the Hillsborough County Planning Commission, and a Future of the Region Development Award from the Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council.
One-third of the community will remain conservation and open space. Moreover, the community is bordered by 2,000 acres of county-owned nature preserve. Send me information now!
