The Park at Taormina
An unsurpassed, rare park sanctuary of supreme beauty
Over 3,000 Feet of Wooden Boardwalks
Wind Through Tree Shrouded Bird Sanctuaries
Central to Taormina is the concept of a 33 acre park of incredible worth: 20 million dollars in added project revenue is a conservative estimate, considering the sales premiums the park will bring to the Developer of the Retirement Community.
Residences will surround and overlook an unsurpassed and rare Park/Sanctuary of supreme beauty. Just as importantly, however, are the use, involvement, and accessibility of this exceptional amenity to residents and visitors alike. Over three thousand feet of wooden boardwalks wind through tree shrouded bird sanctuaries, just footsteps from residents’ terraces. Embarking from this point, the boardwalks meander along a myriad of trails, leading to a 20,000 square foot central pavilion. This gracious pavilion is ideal for casual or formal occasions; from family gatherings to concerts under the stars. Picnic areas and seating abound as one ventures toward this central pavilion; or, one may opt to simply enjoy the tranquility of nature.
An Equestrian center is also an available amenity at Taormina Reserve.
The pavilion itself is a focal point: informal social gatherings during the morning hours to concerts under the stars. The Park at Taormina is a unique treasure not available at other projects.
The park also lends itself to myriads active, handicap accessible yet eco-friendly pursuits: Over two miles of paved trails, boardwalks, gardening, kayaking and fishing on the picturesque lake; sailing boats; rowing; private picnics on the banks. Evening motion picture showings, and guided bird tours are just the beginning. The Park at Taormina is integral in how the project may be developed as a World Class destination.
