Connerton has approximately 8,000 acres and was originally a working cattle ranch owned by generations of the Conner family. When the family sold the land to Connerton’s first developer, both parties came together and created a plan to preserve the property.
In fact, in 2003 the State of Florida purchased the 3,000-acre tract to be managed by the Southwest Florida Management District with $26 million of Forever Florida conservation funds. This means that future generations of Connerton residents will be able to enjoy the same natural beauty. The same pristine environment that residents appreciate today.
