Brunswick Forest is one of the area’s top master planned communities that cater to Baby Boomers and families. The well designed neighborhood features upscale cottage homes, town homes, low-maintenance patio homes and charming bungalows. Each Brunswick Forest neighborhood has its own distinctive look, but open space is a common theme, as are gracious parks, native plantings and copious landscaping. It’s hard to find a more beautiful neighborhood to enjoy the outdoors.

Other amenities include a network of more than 100 miles of paved and unpaved walking and biking trails connecting Brunswick Forest’s various neighborhoods. No other community in the Wilmington-area offers as many walking and biking trails as Brunswick Forest.

Those trails link to the community’s 18,000-square-foot Fitness & Wellness Center.
