It’s time for a party and Waterset, a Newland community in Apollo Beach, is rolling out the red carpet. The community is growing and there will be a celebration to mark the one-year birthday and you are invited.

The party will take place on Saturday, October 5 from 3-8 p.m., at 7012 Sail View Ln. in Apollo Beach.

Food trucks will serve free samples from 3-5 p.m. Some of the food trucks in attendance will be The Dude and His Food, Renny’s Oki Doki, Burger Culture and Mobile Munchiez.

Enjoy live music out on the lawn from 3-8 p.m. featuring Stormbringer, a favorite Tampa Bay band that performs classic rock. Activities for the kids will include obstacle courses, face painters, caricature and balloon artists.

Sign up for a chance to win exciting gifts including Waterset gear and gifts from Ybor Grill, Panera Bread, Circles Restaurant, Publix and The Alley.

Ten model homes (with door prize drawings) will be open with new home designs for you to visit. Four additional models will open in late October. The plans for those new models can be viewed during the celebration.

Teri McGinnis, Marketing Manager at Waterset said, “We would just like to celebrate the success of the community and celebrate the milestones that we achieved this year.”

What kind of community is Waterset? It is an engaged community. If you are a nature enthusiast, you can find meaningful interactions daily with nature. There are miles of trails to explore and that begins right outside your front door. The neighborhoods connect to the parks, where the trails begin. A community pool located at the Landing, which is the heart of the community and makes it easy to stay local for quality playtime.

You can pump it up at the Fitness Center which is located in the Landing, enjoying state-of-the-art cardio equipment and plenty of room for weights and stretching. The Landing is a great place to refuel, relax and meet new friends, and is open daily from 8 a.m.-6 p.m. and from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. on Sundays.

Future plans include a new neighborhood park with playground and picnic area and also a Dog Park for your four-legged friends.

Waterset is currently home to 90 families. Over 161 homes have been sold this past year, and there are 287 home sites also available in the second phase of development. When complete, Waterset will have over 3,600 homes.
