Nature lovers will be delighted with Shell Point's preserve of almost 400 acres and miles of walking trails, bike paths, and observation areas.
Boardwalks, bridges, walking trails, and bike paths have been designed to connect these outdoor spaces and make them accessible to residents.
Shell Point's numerous lakes and water views are incorporated throughout the community's design. Manatees, dolphins and tropical water birds are frequent visitors. Special precautions have been taken to not only protect their habitat, but restore or improve it wherever possible. In 2021, Shell Point was designated a Certified Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Association.
Residents who are interested in gardening, can enjoy individual garden plots, a lovely rose garden, and a fully equipped orchid greenhouse.
