This is what resort-style living should be like! Grand Palm offers a one-of-a-kind blend of natural beauty and active-living amenities. Neal designed this as the first Sarasota County 2050 planned development. What does that mean?
The first thing you’ll notice is the 30-50% of Grand Palm land is left undeveloped and preserved--giving us native green spaces, and natural corridors and wetlands for wildlife. These lush green belts weave their way throughout our homes and common spaces. We have 52 lakes or ponds that enhance the natural beauty of our community and attract wild turkeys, sandhill cranes, bobcats and all the other wildlife you can see here daily.
Here, neighborhood residents enjoy a wide range of activities. Grand Palm features 28 miles of recreational trails for walking, running and biking. The Palm House fitness center has three separate rooms to work out on your favorite equipment, also includes a resort-style pool with waterslide and a lap pool with spa, the splash park and Adventure Playground entertain the kids. The Social Club offers a resort-style pool, pickleball courts, game and gathering spaces and an open-cafe kitchen for residents to enjoy.
Adventure Lake with Lookout Point Island invite kayaking and features two fishing piers. Basketball, tennis, bocce ball, and volleyball courts provide more opportunities for enjoying sports. Pet owners appreciate the two dog parks, Big Barks for large dogs and Playful Paws for small dogs.
If you would like to explore outside of Grand Palm, the quaint City of Venice has it all! If you like shopping, historic downtown Venice offers many unique shops and boutiques and there are a wide range of dining choices to satisfy every appetite from casual beach fare to four-course meals and a variety of fresh seafood options.
There is always something to do in Venice, any time of the year. Art, craft, food and music festivals are held downtown regularly. Holiday parades are held on land or by water on the intracoastal. Relax with yoga on the beach or beat your own drum at a sunset drum circle. Kids of all ages will love spending the day hunting for sharks teeth at Caspersen Beach.
We hope you enjoy our paradise!
