Outdoor Adventure


Golfers of all levels enjoy our gorgeous, semi-private 18-hole course that meanders through  the community’s stunning natural terrain. Grab your gear, jump in a cart, and meet at the clubhouse for a hole-lotta fun!


Whether you want to get in some exercise or enjoy time to explore, we have over 30 miles of maintained bike and hike trails that let you wander at your own pace through our densely-treed community. Run, walk, hike, bike, skip, or simply indulge yourself in the reenergizing peace of the verdant canopy and inviting landscape.


Singles or doubles, it’s love all on our courts. Grab a racket, pick up a few friends, and score a good time with a competitive game of tennis or more leisurely round of pickleball.

Patio & Firepit

Grab a bottle of vino and meet with up with neighbors at the amenity complex’s lakeside patio. A firepit offers a place to warm your tootsies on chilly nights and to roast s’mores with the kiddos.

Event Lawn And Pavilion

An expansive green space comes to life when family and friends get together for picnics, playdates, special events and outdoor activities. The open air pavillon is center stage for community concerts and cookouts.

200-Acre Nature Preserve

Nestled among 100-year-old cypress trees, the preserve features a 1-mile sandy beach on the San Jacinto, lakes for fishing, paddle boarding, and kayaking, and miles of trails. Covered picnic areas and grills are there for al fresco meals.


Toddlers and tykes alike can work out their wiggles on the playground’s slides, swings, and monkey bars.

Indoor Fun

Discovery Cove Amenity Complex

This is the heart of our community, where residents enjoy a home away from home. Our beautiful amenity complex is situated on our largest lake and is the site for special events, holiday celebrations, engaging activities, classes and demonstrations, and more.

Fitness Center

Our fitness center offers the latest in cardio machines and weight-lifting equipment for individual sessions and group classes. There is also an outdoor yoga space where you can pursue your daily wellness goals. Plan your daily work out your way.

On the WAter

Swimming Pool

A sparkling resort-style pool beckons you to your morning laps, to take a dip on warm days, or to lounge with a good book (and good sunscreen) on lazy afternoons. The nearby splash pad is a place for kids to goof off while they cool off.


The largest of our lakes, Mirror Lake and Phillips Lake, are inviting waterholes, perfect for paddleboarding, fishing, and kayaking. We also have 2 smaller lakes that are delightful backdrops for picnics, bird watching, skipping rocks, or catching tadpoles!

Waterpark & Lazy River

No need for anyone to ask “are we there yet?” The answer is “yes” with our staycation-worthy water amenities. Kids of all ages will lap up the fun at our exciting water park and everyone can float the day away on the relaxing lazy river.
