Cypress Lakes Is Abundant in Wildlife

Property of

With more than 1,000 acres of beauty, much of which is designated conservation land that will never be built upon, Cypress Lakes 55+ Community has become known for its abundance of wildlife.

From Sandhill Cranes and Black-bellied Whistling Ducks, to deer and alligators, the community has become home to many of the species native to Central Florida, specifically since they are safe from hunters and other predators.

Residents of Cypress Lakes enjoy evening walks and golf cart rides around dusk when human activity quiets down for the day, and in turn the wildlife activity picks up. You’re sure to spot deer grazing out on one of two expansive 18-hole golf courses that wind throughout the community, or a colony of White Ibis picking their dinner then roosting up in the Cypress Trees where they take shelter for the night.

It’s a beautiful sight here at Cypress Lakes 55-plus community, and our residents never get tired of it!
