Can you feel it? The delight of discovering the hidden forest of Tall Gee Woods. The get-up-and-dance energy of an outdoor concert in Brown Family Park. The pleasure of hopping on your bike and meeting a friend for lunch at one of the many restaurants at Nexton Square. The quiet joy of walking down a street of carefully crafted homes (especially when one of them is yours). Nexton is designed to live like a town. That is to say, it’s designed to live well.
Nexton offers a standing invitation to get outside and move your body. Almost half of the entire community is devoted to parks and nature. And these aren’t just your standard-issue parks. Each one has its own character and its own way of inspiring healthy living, creative play and community spirit. Then there’s the Brighton Park Swim Club, with its pool, splash pad, screened porch, game lawns and big fire pit. And with a trail network that winds through the whole community, your morning walk can feel like an adventure all by itself.
The way we see it, community is what happens when people actually commune. So we're creating all sorts of interesting events that bring people together. Like concerts in Brown Family Park. Or the annual Cocoa Cup 5k, which attracts running enthusiasts from around the region. These larger events have inspired a culture of spontaneous neighborliness. Potluck dinners, holiday lighting contests, yoga in the park — proving that community-mindedness is natural. It just needs a nice place to grow.
Get a bird's eye view. And runner's, swimmer's, guitar player's and porch swinger's eye view.
