As the once cozy community of Fort Myers responds to the pressure for growth from those who want to share in its bounty, a vestige of village life will be found at Southwind Preserve.

This serene, gated community of only 101 single family homes is tucked away at the southern terminus of Winkler, a short stroll from the beginning of Hendry Creek.

Residents share the ambiance of a sparkling eight-acre lake, a 20-acre wooded nature preserve, two convenient community recreation centers, and a nature trail. A community pool and cabana provide an inviting gathering place for neighbors to share stories of families and friends.
