Amenity Center at Shearwater Will Showcase the Kayak Club and Fitness Lodge

June 29th, 2015

At Freehold Communities, we do more than build new home developments. Our real passion lies in creating livable spaces that offer unique amenities and bring neighbors together. That vision is taking shape right now at Shearwater, our new master-planned community located halfway between St. Augustine and Jacksonville. When it opens this fall, the Shearwater community will be equal parts sanctuary, playground, and social hub that is situated within a naturally serene, walkable setting.

The grand opening of Shearwater is scheduled for January 2016. Approximately 2,600 homes are expected to be built over multiple phases. An impressive array of exciting amenities will include:

– Twelve miles of paved, boardwalk, and natural trails connecting residents to 600 acres of preserved habitat that will feature a variety of ponds, lakes and wetlands
– An assortment of pocket parks
– Four illuminated Har-Tru clay tennis courts
– Kayak Club
– Fitness Lodge
– Playfields and multiple playgrounds
– Resort-style lagoon pool and multi-lane lap pool
– Three-story water slide tower
– Winding lazy bird river
– Future phases will include a Kayak and canoe launch that will provide direct access to Trout Creek

The most remarkable amenities at Shearwater will be the Kayak Club and the Fitness Lodge, which form the social and recreational core of the community. When it opens early next summer, the Kayak Club will feature a variety of gathering spaces and event venues within its oversized expanse. Shearwater’s on-site Lifestyle Director will plan frequent social activities and special events. The Lifestyle Director will also be able to recommend activities that best align with your family’s needs and interests. The spacious Fitness Lodge will feature a large work-out area with state-of-the-art cardio and muscle building equipment. Residents will have the opportunity to work with a personal trainer or take group fitness classes in the dedicated fitness room.

Along with its abundance of community amenities, Shearwater will offer convenient access to outstanding public and private schools, St. Johns County national parks, beaches, golf, shopping, entertainment and a regional airport.
