Today’s retirees are looking for more than croquet courts when it comes to their amenities and activities. At Moorings Park Grande Lake, a multitude of both will keep residents active and engaged for years to come.
“As baby boomers continue moving further into their retirement years they are seeking communities that are different from the communities available to their parents and grandparents,” stated Dan Lavender, CEO of Moorings Park Institute, Inc. “One of the keys to their decision, when it comes to where to live, is the overall lifestyle. These retirees are active, vibrant and social and want to live in a community that gives them the most exciting and fulfilling lifestyle options available.”
That lifestyle begins in the clubhouse at Moorings Park Grande Lake.
“Like many clubhouses, the one at Moorings Park Grande Lake will feature casual and fine dining venues, a private dining room, long curved bar and a resort-style pool with poolside cabanas,” said Lavender. “But, it also has a state-of-the-art fitness center, a strength and cardio area, a salon and spa, and an art studio.”
Another unique lifestyle feature in the clubhouse is a golf simulator.
“Our research indicates the golf simulator will be a very popular amenity,” added Steve Brinkert, Vice President of Resident Services for Moorings Park. “Many of our residents have golfed in the past or still do, and the golf simulator will be a great tool to enhance their skill level or simply have fun exercising, no matter the weather outside.”
Moorings Park’s original campus already has its own art studio with classes that are very popular with residents.
“We expect the same will be true when the art studio opens in Moorings Park Grande Lake clubhouse,” said Lavender. “Many of our residents are extremely creative and the art studio will be the ideal place for them to continue and even enhance their creative talents.”
Also located in the clubhouse will be The Center for Healthy Living. The center is home to rehabilitation services, as well as the Care 360 concierge healthcare program, which was developed in partnership with NCH Healthcare System.
The Care 360 program offers a higher level of personalized primary care. Services are available to residents of Moorings Park with no additional fees, other than typical co-pays. The Care 360 concierge physicians are accessible by appointment, plus 24/7 access via phone, text or email.
While some residents will have a paint brush in their hand, others will likely have a golf club in theirs. The golf simulator planned for Moorings Park Grande Lake’s clubhouse will give resident golfers a chance to perfect their game no matter the weather outside.
And while the list of amenities inside the clubhouse is long, Moorings Park Grande Lake will also have a number of outstanding and unique amenities outside.
A few include a yoga pavilion, rubberized walking paths, lakeside parklettes with boardwalks, gardens, fire pits and overlooks, several bird-watching posts, and bocce and pickleball courts.
“One of the advantages of living in Southwest Florida is the year-round outdoor activities that can be enjoyed by everyone,” stated Lavender. “Our research shows our residents love being outside so we designed as many outdoor amenities as possible. Whether it’s classes in the yoga pavilion, strolls through the gardens or walking paths, or even watching the native birds take flight, there are many activities in which to participate.”
Consistent with other Moorings Park campuses, Moorings Park Grande Lake will also include common areas that promote social interaction, which will allow and encourage residents to choose from indoor and outdoor activities year-round.
“The areas for social gatherings were designed so the family members and friends of our residents could join in the various activities,” said Lavender.
Moorings Park Grande Lake is being developed by Moorings Park, the premier provider of active retirement living in Southwest Florida, in partnership with London Bay Development Group.
