Community Garden

Each year residents may rent a space and grow fresh vegetables and flowers. When season is in full swing the Gardeners donate what they can not use to the Community Garden Market. Residents are invited to visit the Market and get fresh veggies, flowers and herbs weekly. Surplus food is donated to Meals on Wheels. It is a great time to make some great friends!


Pickleball is best described as a cross between tennis and ping-pong. It is one of the fastest growing games in the nation! Because of the excitement and interest in this new activity, Rarity Bay Country Club (RBCC) built and unveiled four new pickleball courts in November 2017. The game has quickly gained traction with our Members and is now one of the most popular activities offered in Rarity Bay. This high energy game can be enjoyed with friends and family. It’s easy for beginners to learn but action packed enough for experienced players.
