WaterWays Township, a 2,300-acre gated, planned community in south Bryan County, recently announced “Catch the Current,” a series of previews to introduce its coastal lifestyle to the area.
Fletcher Management Company, the developers of Marsh Landing, TPC Sawgrass, the Ponte Vedra Lodge & Club and Baymeadows in Jacksonville, Fla., are behind WaterWays.
Beginning with a ribbon-cutting celebration July 15 at WaterClub West, civic and government dignitaries and Fletcher leadership, will open the community that showcases a junior Olympic pool, screened pavilion, summer kitchen for group entertainment, back country bike trails, more than three miles of lagoons, more than six miles of marsh, fishing and its new series of showcase homes.
After the mid-morning ribbon-cutting, the community leaders will be provided with a site tour and lunch.
From 10 a.m.-4 p.m. July 16, the WaterWays community will be open to the public.
From the entry orchard that greets visitors upon arrival, casting and fishing tours on one of the lagoons, conservation lectures by archeologists working at the historic Cottenham Plantation site, and one-on-one sessions with WaterWays’ award-winning builders, the day of events and activities will feature numerous opportunities for the public to understand what life at WaterWays Township will be like.
The schedule of activities includes plans for back country bike tours underneath ancient oak hammocks, pontoon boat rides or kayaking along the Bill Dance-designed fishing lagoons, swimming in the Rick Wissmach-designed WaterClub West pool and personal tours to experience the vistas of coastal marshes along Red Bird Creek.
The events have been custom-crafted to introduce Savannah-area citizens to the lifestyle currently available for residents of WaterWays.
“Inviting the public to experience life on the water is paramount to future residents understanding our vision for this community. Our Catch the Current preview events will provide ongoing opportunities for families to understand the exceptional lifestyle to be enjoyed by those who choose to make their home at WaterWays,” said Vance Askew, marketing and sales director of WaterWays Township.
“Catch the Current is our way of bringing out the welcome mat for the local community that has offered such support and encouragement.”
