Relocating to Tampa Bay? Consider Walden Lake!!!

clip_image002Although Plant City (Florida) is known for growing strawberries and its world famous Strawberry Festival, it is also a great place to live and work.  One of the best places to live is in Walden Lake, which is a large planned development comprising 30 neighborhoods with more than 2,000 homes  (including villas townhomes and single family residences) and two apartment communities. Some of the amenities include two 18-hole golf courses (known as the Lakes and Hills Courses) designed by Internationally recognized golf course designer Ron Garl, a 62-acre lake, dog park, playground, junior Olympic pool, fitness center and tennis courts.  It should be not that the Hills Course is closed and there is some debate that it could be developed with new home sites.  As you drive thru this development, you will notice a tree line streets and breathtaking views of the golf course. This development features a wide variety of price ranges and housing options like million dollar residences to affordable homes in the high $100s.  Although there is a junior Olympic pool located at the Walden Lake Golf and Country Club, most homes feature a swimming pool. There is also several supporting commercial uses located at the main entrance along Alexander Street like medical facilities, office parks, branch banks, shopping centers, and restaurants.
