The waterside is absolutely stunning. Waterside, which has 7 large lakes with 20 miles of freshwater, has waterside attractions and facilities. The Center for Waterside Side Place has a complete list of shops, restaurants, water taxis, resort-level clubhouses, and community activities throughout the year. The 12 individual neighborhoods are connected to each other for easy access to Waterside Place.
Waterside's first development in Sarasota tagged as part of the master-development of the Lucknow Range. Originally envisioned as a village in Lakewood Ranch South, the community parkway is easily accessible via the University from the north via Lorraine Road on 3,500 acres. Its site extends south of the Lake Club and the Sarasota Polo Club and provides an excellent template for the sale of newly built Sarasota homes.
At Waterside at Lakewood Ranch, community residents can enjoy great shopping and the dining experience as well as more cultural activities. The Players' Center for the Performing Arts, Sarasota's oldest art institution, moves from campus to its own center, bringing over 400 theatre shows each year. In addition to providing space for open-air public meetings, the nearby waterside park is designed to accommodate boat docks, dog parks, waterfront restaurants, and the farmer's market.
