Bird Key is a small community with a gated community feel, even though its roads are public and it is surrounded by blue waters and palm trees – It is a 250-acre tropical island paradise.
Garden homes provide a great opportunity to live and play by the water at a fraction of the cost of a waterfront property. Waterfront homes are spectacular with their own access to the waterways.
Bird key is only 5 minutes’ drive to Downtown Sarasota boasting many restaurants, Ballet, Opera and theater. St. Armand’s Circle, is also a 5-minute drive away with its many trendy shops and restaurants. Lido beach is accessed from Armand Circle. In addition, the award winning Siesta Key is a short 20-minute drive south, and has a number of public beaches, restaurants, shops, attractions, and wildlife.
Bird Key Yacht club welcomes members from all over, but many are Bird Key residents. The club has boat slips, tennis courts, an Olympic-sized swimming pool, a fitness center with classes, and group activities.
Right across the Ringling Causeway at the entrance to Bird Key is Bird Key Park. This park is a popular location to fish, bike, exercise and enjoy the sunset and is Owned and operated by the City of Sarasota Parks & Recreation District. The perfect place to stroll and catch the sunset.
