Communities Abound West of I-75 and Gainesville
Homes west of I-75 are perfect for families. This suburban area holds the perfect mixture of Gainesville real estate options and close proximity to family friendly outdoor spaces. Kanapaha Botanical Gardens hold a large compilation of various flower and plant exhibits. It is the biggest herb garden in the southeast and holds several festivals annually.

If you are a runner or enjoy hiking, you will be conveniently located near Split Rock Conservation Area. A running trail hikes through the area and ends at a large limestone rock that has been cracked down the middle. There use to be a swimming hole here and retaining walls were added to keep the water in but it has since dried up.
