Bonita Bay was designed to create an environment where residents could feel at home amid Florida’s extraordinary tropical nature. More than half of the community is dedicated to parks, lakes, nature preserves and open space. These parks are connected with over ten miles of jogging and bike trails. And each of Bonita Bay’s four waterfront parks offers a unique signature.
