ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla., Oct. 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Shearwater, the new master-planned residential community on County Road 210, is coming to life as families move in and embrace the immersive lifestyle that sets Shearwater apart. Developed to promote healthy living, community engagement and a connection to the outdoors, Shearwater offers residents a vibrant neighborhood in a sought-after location.
Lifestyle Director, Dylan Read, leads Shearwater's distinct approach to lifestyle programming by interacting with families daily to plan activities and events based around their interests. Just this month, residents can attend a Haunted Boardwalk, Fall Festival and a movie under the stars, in addition to weekly activities like running clubs, fitness classes, tennis lessons, happy hours and coffee meet-ups.
The epicenter of community activity is the newly opened Kayak Club, which combines a range of amenities, family-friendly activities and a robust social calendar to accommodate every lifestyle. Kayak Club highlights include: the Hub Wi-Fi café; a 562-foot Lazy Bird River, the Perch Waterslide Tower overlooking a multi-lane lap pool and lagoon pool; illuminated Har-Tru tennis courts, oversized fitness lodge, a playground featuring KOMPAN™ equipment, and 13 miles of paved, natural and boardwalk trails.
"My husband and I are building a family and getting settled in St. Johns County after having moved around a lot over the years, and we decided Shearwater was the place for us," said Kylene Dean, a new resident who recently moved to Shearwater. "Shearwater has a strong family-friendly feel, and it feels like a relaxing family resort at the Kayak Club amenities center."
Shearwater continues to buzz with energy as more families call the 1,500-acre community home. In future phases residents will be able to enjoy a pet park and a kayak launch on Trout Creek, directly connecting residents to the St. Johns River!
