Health & Fitness
The Ridge is ideal for walking. Choose from strolling the quiet streets to hiking over 7 miles of trails. Trails meander throughout the community, the Freeman Nature Preserve and around the farms at Solstice Meadow. Enjoy wooded paths, meadow's edge carriage roads, waterfront trails or the treadmills at the planned* athletic center. For a change of pace, stroll Aiken's pedestrian friendly historic down town.
Work out with friends or your personal trainer at the hill top athletic center*. Swim or do water aerobics at the pool*.
Savor the delicious flavors of locally grown produce. Grow your our own fruits, vegetables and flowers at the Ridge's community garden or visit the Aiken Farmers' Market for fresh local food. Our community garden will have perimeter fencing, raised beds, irrigation and composting. Aiken's mild four season climate provides a long growing season.
Numerous facilities are available for play in Aiken and recreational teams abound. One of our favorites is the H. O. Weeks Tennis Complex nearby on Whiskey Road has hard and clay courts, and offers instruction, leagues and camps.
Aiken and Augusta offer world class courses. More information for golf enthusiasts can be found on our golf page.
