CITY OF WESTLAKE, FL — (April 3, 2023) — Minto Communities USA has unveiled its newest amenities in the community of Westlake. The award-winning developer/builder has completed construction of the final phase of its $22 million resort-style Westlake Adventure Park, the centerpiece for social gatherings and activities at the 3,800-acre master-planned community.
On Wednesday, March 29, city and county officials, and other invited guests, joined the Minto team to officially dedicate the new amenity spaces with a ribbon cutting ceremony and reception. A grand opening event for residents took place the following Friday with live music, food trucks, a basketball trick shots demonstration and more.
“Our goal from the very beginning was not just to build quality, affordably priced homes at Westlake, but to create an active and entertaining lifestyle to go with it,” said Minto Senior Vice President John Carter. “It’s gratifying to see our full vision for the Westlake Adventure Park come to fruition for the benefit of our residents.”
The newly opened amenities include four full-length, lighted basketball courts, a lap pool for adults only, and a versatile multi-purpose building called The Lodge, designed for community meetings, activities and social events. The 8,386-square-foot Lodge can be configured as one large space or divided into three separate rooms. It is equipped with a state-of-the-art catering kitchen, a large retractable movie screen with 4K projection for movie nights, and a sound system which can pipe music within the building or throughout the entire Adventure Park. The Lodge building opens to a large, covered patio that is connected to the Lodge Lawn, a spacious outdoor gathering area with synthetic turf for special events, lawn games and parties.
The original section of the Westlake Adventure Park was completed in 2019. It features a large resort-style lagoon pool with a tower water slide, a splash pad, and the Snack Shack and Scoops Ice Cream poolside concessions. Other amenities include a BMX pump park, children’s playground, an expansive lawn area with concert pavilion for community events, bocce ball courts, BBQ grilling stations, a dog park and a food truck court that is adjacent to the new Lodge Lawn.
Westlake is approved for 4,500 homes and more than 2 million square feet of commercial space. Minto is currently offering a mix of single-family homes, larger estate homes and townhomes for sale starting in the $400s. A new Publix and several new retail stores are expected to open for business over the next couple of months. In early March, Christ Fellowship Church opened an 800-seat worship center just off Seminole Pratt Whitney Road.
The Westlake Sales Center is located at 16610 Town Center Parkway North in the City of Westlake, on Seminole Pratt Whitney Road between Southern Blvd. and Northlake Blvd. For more information on the community, call 888-299-3628 or visit www.WestlakeFL.com.
