Blues Creek Homes for Sale

Blues Creek is a tight-knit community of single-family homes in bucolic Northwest Gainesville. Residents enjoy the comforts of suburban living at an affordable price. The homes were built in the 1990s or early 2000s and range in size from 2,000 to 3,000 sq/ft on cozy lots.

Blues Creek is a short drive to the University of Florida and Shands hospitals. It’s also very close to Turkey Creek Golf Club, San Felasco State Park, Devil’s Millhopper Geological State Park, and a clutch of well-preserved conservation areas. The entrance is located off of NW 43rd St., north of Millhopper Rd.

What’s It Like Living in Blues Creek?

If you look at the aerial map of Blues Creek, you’ll notice that over half of the land is undeveloped forest land. A big perk of living in Blues Creek is the peace and tranquility that comes with being surrounded by protected nature areas.

The compact grid of Blues Creek’s east side is the secret to the community’s low carbon footprint and affordability.

On Blues Creek’s tree-canopied west side, you find larger homes on larger lots. The west side blends seamlessly into West Alachua County’s much-lauded conservation areas, including Blues Creek Ravine, which is open to the public.

Blues Creek residents enjoy all of the amenities you would expect to find in a suburban residential community, including:

  • A light-filled clubhouse
  • Pool
  • Tennis courts

What to Do in Blues Creek

Blues Creek Ravine

Blues Creek Ravine is a well-kept local secret. Tucked away on NW 71st Street, the publicly accessible part of the preserve is a great place to walk the dog, enjoy a relaxing forest bath or a vigorous hike. It’s about a 30-minute hike through the marked loop trail.

The land is managed by Alachua Conservation Trust, which keeps it as an almost pristine example of a North Florida upland habitat. The preserve gives harbor to the threatened crane fly orchid and southern lady fern.

To get there, park in the grass on the right-of-way of NW 71st Street and walk down NW 69th Avenue. Don’t worry about the “Private Road” sign; you’re permitted to walk down the road to get access to the preserve entrance. The park opens up to a beautiful upland pine habitat and elevated views of the creek, which winds its way through the ravine.

Entrance fee: free

San Felasco Hammock Preserve State Park

This sprawling nature preserve offers serene walks through wetlands and mature forests, as well as outdoor adventures for horseback riders and off-road cyclists.

  • The hiking trailhead is located 4 miles NW of Gainesville on State Rd 232 at 11101 Millhopper Rd.
  • The horseback and bicycle trailheads are located just south of Alachua, off US 441.

Entrance fee$4 per vehicle, $2 for pedestrians and cyclists

Turkey Creek Golf Club

Turkey Creek, a 1,1000-acre golf development on the edge of San Felasco State Park, is experiencing a renaissance thanks to volunteer efforts to restore Turkey Creek Golf Club to its former glory. Golf Digest wrote about the Miracle at Turkey Creek earlier this year.

The golf club offers free introductory clinics led by PGA pros for adults of all ages. Lessons for the kids start in early spring. Monthly tournaments are an occasion for the community to unite and engage in friendly competition.

Entrance fee: $10 for 9-holes on weekdays, $20 for 18-holes on weekends

Devil’s Millhopper Geological State Park

A short drive from Blues Creek, Devil’s Millhopper is an iconic Gainesville landmark. Fed by little waterfalls and slow-moving creeks, the sinkhole at the heart of this park nourishes an ecosystem found in very few other places in the world.

It gets cooler and quieter as you descend the 132 steps of the boardwalk while the vegetation becomes more lush. Even during the hottest summer months, Devil's Millhopper is an oasis of cool and tranquility. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for the fox sparrow, grey treefrog, and golden-banded skipper.

Entrance fee: $4 per vehicle, up to 8 visitors. $2 pedestrians and bicyclists.

Family Fun at Possum Creek

Set on 76 acres, Possum Creek features the best skate park in Gainesville, a playground, a nature trail, and a dog park. The dog area is fully fenced and maintained and offers a water bowl and kiddie pool for your fur babies to splash around.
