Residents regularly enjoy gardening, kayaking, boating and fishing right from their own backyard. It’s just as easy to jump in your boat and cruise down to one of your favorite dockside restaurants.
The community is also just minutes from Phillippi Estate Park, a 60-acre park south of downtown Sarasota located at 5500 S. Tamiami Trail. The park features large fields perfect for a family soccer or baseball game, a playground, picnic tables, a fishing pier, a canoeing and kayaking launch area along the Phillippi Creek, unpaved and paved nature trails and a beautiful gazebo area that can be rented out for weddings. The park also features restrooms and an environmental and historic attraction known as the Edson Keith Mansion, which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
School-aged residents have access to A+ schools in the renowned Riverview High School district, including Riverview High School, Brookside Middle School and Phillippi Shores Elementary School.
With the SCAT (Sarasota County Area Transit) bus line pick up right outside the community and its proximity to Tamiami Trail, residents enjoy easy access to dining and shopping in Downtown Sarasota and at the nearby Westfield Southgate Mall and Lido and Siesta Key beaches. For those who favor golfing over shopping, Gulf Gate public golf course, one of the best courses in the state, is just a short 10 minute drive away.
As you can see, Phillippi Gardens has a lot to offer and it truly is a great place to call home for any family.
