It is easy to focus on the amenities, quality of life and benefits of living in the FishHawk community. Certainly, the planning and design of the community merits this type of focus and the attention given to FishHawk is not unmerited. However, adding to FishHawk’s overall luster is the fact that it itself is surrounded by several great neighborhoods that are exemplary communities in their own right.
- Lithia Ridge – Lithia Ridge sits just to the north of Fishhawk on Lithia Pinecrest Road and it too offers a community playground, extensive nature trails, sports fields for field sports and a community pavilion.
- River Hills – River Hills is an upscale development that sits just to the south of Lithia Ridge on Lithia Pinecrest and it hosts its own 18-hole golf course, a series of 8 tennis courts, a junior Olympic pool which is used for area swim meets and also has a 13,000 square foot clubhouse and other amenities. Like Fish Hawk Trails, River Hills is a gated community with a 24-hour guard on duty.
- Bloomingdale – This is a unique community; in that, more than 5 separate developers took part in the building of Bloomingdale. Accordingly, there are 31 subdivisions, 15 with voluntary homeowner associations and 16 with mandatory homeowner associations. With so many developers, 45 separate deed restriction documents exist today covering all the different sections within each subdivision
- Channing Park – Channing Park is an adjacent neighborhood to FishHawk Ranch and is still in process of being built out by Taylor Morrison. The feel of this community is intimate, yet spacious, due to the large home sites and landscaping. Channing Park’s value is the area’s excellent schools, Stowers elementary, Barrington Middle and Newsome High School. Channing Park has easy access to Interstate 75 and for those military buyers 40 minutes to MacDill Air Force Base.
All of these upscale communities are within minutes of FishHawk and share in the area’s abundant natural beauty and wildlife. To the east of FishHawk Ranch lies the newer community of Channing Park which hosts its own clubhouse, pool, and playground. There are other communities that are situated in the same general area which share access to some of the FishHawk area schools as well. Some of these other communities which are somewhat further away include Bell Creek Preserve, Enclave at Boyette and Colonial Hills among a few others.
