The Parks of Bonita Bay

Interwoven throughout our 2,400-acre community is a 12-mile network of pathways where residents can enjoy walking, jogging and bicycling. Winding through park-like landscaping, darting in and out of nature preserves, and passing lakes and the rolling hills of our golf courses, our pathways provide a healthy alternative to our residents and an easy way to connect with nature and with each other.
These trails lead to virtually every corner of the community, a butterfly garden,  picnic facilities, playgrounds, kayaking, the Bonita Bay Marina and in-between the many neighborhoods of Bonita Bay; including our three beautiful parks:
