Myakka Valley Ranches is uniquely situated adjacent to the 28,875 acre Myakka
River State Park, an oasis of natural Florida vegetation. The park contains miles
of hiking trails, two lakes, and a wild & scenic river. It is not uncommon to see  
native wildlife species: gopher tortoises,alligators, armadillos, fox, deer, otter, and
even an occasional bald eagle.  

    Myakka Valley Ranches offers a way of
    life all it's own. The subdivision is
    comprised of approximately three
    hundred 5+ acre parcels, with privately
    owned and maintained paved roads.
    The area is designed to accommodate
    horses, with easements on both sides
    of the 17 miles of paved roads
    designated as riding trails as well as
    several miles of other trails. The road
    system design provides for low traffic
    and creates an ideal setting for bike
    riding and jogging.  Two private
    waterfront parks are located within the
    subdivision for resident's use.
    The Sarasota County fire station pictured at
    left is conveniently located at the entrance of
    the subdivision.  

    Myakka Valley Ranches Improvement
