Nocatee to expand popular Greenway Trails system

Parc Group

A key part of Nocatee’s 5,000 acres of interconnected parks, wetland preserves and wildlife corridors, the Greenway Trails offer miles of biking, jogging, fitness and nature trails.

Carefully placed in land permanently set aside for preservation, the Greenway Trails were designed to provide residents easy access to shopping and amenities by a system of trails through the area’s natural environment. In addition to natural paths, the extensive trail network includes paved electric-vehicle approved paths, enabling residents to travel throughout the community on golf carts and other electrically powered, eco-friendly, low-speed vehicles.

“As we continue to grow, our commitment to protecting and sustaining Nocatee’s natural beauty remains as strong as ever,” said The PARC Group President and CEO Rick Ray. “Providing for outdoor activities while protecting our environmentally sensitive areas goes hand in hand with what homeowners want today—neighborhoods that are carefully planned with amenities that are blended into the natural environment.”

The Greenway Trails expansion includes two key improvements:

First, a new path along the east side of Crosswater Parkway will provide residents of Del Webb Ponte Vedra, Coastal Oaks and Twenty Mile with direct access the Town Center and centralized amenities. This expansion will also complete the connection between Town Center and Davis Park.

Second, a new trail will connect the communities of Cypress Trails, Brookwood, Kelly Pointe, The Palms and The Villas to the Town Center via a trail under Nocatee Parkway at the county line. Both projects will begin by the end of this year and be complete by next summer.

“From hiking to jogging,—or simply taking the golf cart to the grocery store—our Greenway Trails give Nocatee residents incredible access to the best of what North Florida’s natural landscape has to offer,” Ray said.

With more than 100 new homes sold each month in Nocatee, The PARC Group continues to add, expand and enhance amenities according to its long-term masterplan. In 2014, this included expanding Splash Water Park, adding a new kayak launch on the Intracoastal Waterway, building a junior Olympic-size, eight-lane competition pool and much more. The community’s Town Center continues to grow, with new restaurants and businesses opening regularly.
