Our community heart is an amazing assemblage of amenities, scenery, and healthy living activities. From the resort-style Kayak Club and Fitness Lodge, to the scenic beauty of Trout Creek and the surrounding preserved habitat, to the trail system and parks, Shearwater blends natural inspiration and ease like no other.
Nestled lakeside, the Kayak Club is a destination all on its own. From here, the action happens in every direction. The Lifestyle Director plans year-round programs and activities for all of Shearwater’s residents in the Kayak Club’s plentiful gathering spaces and event venues. Four illuminated Har-Tru clay tennis courts—including a stadium court—and manicured sports fields invite casual and organized play. A resort-style lagoon and multi-lane lap pool, winding lazy bird river and “The Perch,” a three-story water slide tower, are set within lush landscaping and spacious lounge areas. Convenient trail access allows the fun to extend far beyond the grounds of the Kayak Club.
Healthy living has a new home at Shearwater. The Fitness Lodge includes dedicated exercise rooms and a large workout area with state-of-the-art cardio and muscle-building equipment. Its proximity to the lap pool, sports field and trail system allows you to move outside and expand your workout routine. The Fitness Lodge is staffed by expert professionals who can help you meet your personal fitness goals.
Outpost Adventure Park
There’s so much to love about the Outpost Adventure Park! The open-air pavilion is stylish and features plenty of comfy seating. You can meet up with friends and neighbors to catch up and let the kids play. Or even just head over with a good book to enjoy the scenery! There’s also a built-in firepit, perfect for roasting s’mores and telling stories around the campfire.
There’s plenty for the kids to enjoy, too! The Outpost Adventure Park includes an all-new playground complete with swing sets and a slide set atop a hill. But the best part? The zipline! Kids and adults alike can have a blast racing down the zipline and see who is fastest. It’s a thrilling amenity that’s practically in your backyard.
The Kayak Launch is one of the most unique amenities at Shearwater – you won’t find something like this just anywhere! This launch provides direct access to the much-loved Trout Creek, which connects to the St. Johns River. Residents can launch their kayaks and canoes to paddle the afternoon away. Or, pack up some bait and a fishing rod to cast a line from your kayak. You never know what you might hook! And the best part? Residents can access it all without leaving the community. So, forget dragging everything to the car only to wait in traffic to get there – living in Shearwater makes it easy and convenient.
