With over 1,000 acres of green spaces, lakes, ponds and wetlands in the SouthWood community, residents can truly feel connected to nature. The majority of these areas are managed by the Capital Region Community Development District (CDD). The CDD has released a SouthWood video series to help educate residents on our green spaces and the habitats of the protected species in our community. The parks in SouthWood are intended for casual use such as picnicking, bird watching, walking your dog, etc. To reserve a park for a private function, you must submit a Special Use Application.
Using your SouthWood Trail and Nature Guide, explore the four habitat preserves and archeological sites around the SouthWood community’s 3,300 acres.

SouthWood Golf Club
Open to the public
Amid the rolling hills south of Tallahassee is one of the finest golf courses in North Florida. Southwood Golf Club, once voted by Golf Magazine as one of the 35 best new courses in country, is an 18-hole, par-72 layout featuring significant elevation changes, picturesque design and exceptional use of native elements. The course was designed by Masters champion and popular PGA Tour player Fred Couples, along with well-known design partner Gene Bates. Virtually every hole is a distinctive and pleasurable trip through nature, with aging live oaks, slash pines and other native plants framing the layout.
