Bird Key is a premier waterfront community nestled between Downtown Sarasota and St. Armands Circle. Developed by Arvida in the 1960's on almost 300 acres, Bird Key is a boaters paradise. The original site map allows for 511 homes including 291 waterfront lots with views of Sarasota Bay or deep water canals. Many homes have been replaced with varying architecture while keeping with the original plans for the community. Bird Key Yacht Club is nestled in the center of Bird Key and offers its members a unique social, dining, and recreational experience. Although residency is not required, many Bird Key residents enjoy membership to Bird Key Yacht Club and its many amenities. Residents enjoy the close proximity to the white sand beaches of Lido Key and Longboat Key as well as the dining and shopping of St. Armands Circle.
Bird Key Park is located directly across from the entrance to Bird Key and offers its visitors a spectacular view of Sarasota Bay and the John Ringling Causeway Bridge as well as Lido Key and the Sarasota skyline. Enjoy a picnic, launch your kayak or paddle board or just sit and watch the boats go by and all within walking distance to your home on Bird Key.
