Ave Maria Residents Do Summer Right

Ave Maria Residents Do Summer Right

June 12, 2018

Summer is here! Longer days. Kaleidoscope sunsets. Lazy mornings. Poolside fun. Outdoor barbeques. Backyard fireworks. Ave Maria’s lifestyle is perfect for those who want to take advantage of all the best that summer has to offer.

Hands down the Ave Maria Water Park is the place to be during summer. The two waterslides are the most popular attraction along with the oversized interactive water playground. Hours of splashing for kids of all ages. Serious swimmers can practice their strokes in the lap pool and relax sore muscles in the spa. A volleyball game in the pool or on the sand? Sure! We’ve got them both. The concession stand provides snacks and drinks when you’re ready for a break from the pool. This outdoor water recreation center is one of the most popular amenities in Ave Maria.

While a round of golf is a favorite in Florida year-round, summertime is a great time to take in 9-holes during a late afternoon followed by a round of drinks at Del Webb Naples’ Panther Run Golf Club and the Rusty Putter. With a menu that includes breakfast, lunch and early evening bar bites, golfers can kick back and order their favorite pre- or post- game meal. A billiard table and outdoor patio bar are great for spending time with friends too.

Got kids? Ave Maria is home to several fun summer events right here in town. For the preschoolers, story time is held every Wednesday morning while older kids can join the Mind Benders Club every Friday. High School Game Night, Aqua Aerobics, and Ice Cream Socials are held all summer for teens and kids.
A community-wide July 4th celebration is held at the Water Park every year. All day fun in the sun for families and active adults at this ultimate warm weather bash. Living in Ave Maria has its perks, all year long, with neighbors who become friends.
