Why everyone should visit Harmony’s conservation area

We’ve said it before – Harmony’s conservation area is something to behold. Harmony’s community encompasses 11,000 acres, 70% of which will always remain lakes, conservation areas and green space. This promise to preserve a large portion of our land is a nod to Harmony’s essential purpose, which was to create a co-existing relationship between humans and nature. And we think we did just that!

Since the first residents moved into the community in 2003, we have continued to expand, all the while keeping our beloved green space intact. Our purpose is about appreciating nature in abundance. Providing our residents a place to be face-to-face with untouched land.

Our promise to conserve 70% of our land isn’t the only conservation we uphold, though. Harmony also is Central Florida’s largest Green Certified development thanks to the eco-friendly construction standards.
