Philippi Creek runs through the heart of South Gate, and Philippi Estate Park sits on its banks, as does the South Gate Community Center.

The South Gate Community Center includes a historic mid-century building designed by Victor Lundy of the Sarasota School of Architecture, a large swimming pool, and canoe or kayak access to Philippi creek. Membership in the community center is optional to all residents, and quite affordable.
