There are nearly endless opportunities for discovering nature at Shearwater! Go for a run, even stroll or take the kids for a bike ride along the 15 miles of trails. Pack a picnic and dine alfresco at one of the multiple neighborhood parks, or meet up with neighbors for a friendly game of soccer or frisbee at the playfield. The yoga lawn is just the place for some rejuvenating stretches, or you can work up a sweat at four Har-Tru® tennis courts – all of which are lighted for playing in the evening!

And we can’t forget about your four-legged family members. Pups of all ages will love a visit to Shearwater’s off-leash dog park, which offers a fenced-in area for plenty of running space, plus an agility course that’s sure to be your dog’s new favorite hangout.
