Weekend fun for the active family near two of our favorite communities!

This weekend our Director of Sales and Marketing, Jennifer Jinnette, set out to explore some of the best activities for the active family in and around two of our communities.

First up was Pocahontas State Park, which is located less than 10 miles from Pennwood Estates, now selling its final phase. It was a beautiful day for kayaking, so my family and I loaded up our kayaks and drove out to this 12.68 square mile State Park.  We happened to go on free parking day, but parking normally is around $7.  While there are a multitude of activities to enjoy in Pocahontas State Park, on this day we focused solely on kayaking.  You can bring your own kayaks or rent them there, as well as paddle boats.  The sky was blue and the air was fresh and clean. We saw wildlife such as cranes, egrets, and fish jumping out of the water, plus a multitude of various size turtles sunning themselves on this gorgeous day.  There’s plenty to do at Pocahontas State Park for the avid fisher, biker, hiker, runner, and so much more.  While closed for the season, the pool looked like a lot of fun featuring large slides. The restroom facilities were clean and the park was well marked.  We will definitely be back to explore this park more!

On Sunday,  we spent the afternoon enjoying one of Brickshires' many amenities, golf!  Plenty of people, from right here in our community or from Richmond and Williamsburg and beyond come to Providence Forge to play a round on our award winning Curtis Strange designed course.  One of the great things about living in Brickshire is ALL of the amenities right at your doorstep, including golf for those who want to play!

On this particular day we only played 9 holes, but you can play 9, 18, 27 or 36!  You will find residents forming their own tournaments and comradery forged by neighbors who become friends.  When you're done playing golf, come to the clubhouse for a nice dinner, enjoy live music on the lawn Friday nights, or just a quiet night at home on one of our peaceful homesites.
