Parks & Green Space

IF YOU LOVE THE OUTDOORS, WE’RE A NATURAL FIT.

Woodside is situated beside a beautiful, protected nature preserve, and the pristine meadows, lakes, rolling woodlands, award-winning golf courses and more make for one breathtaking community. Inside the community, we’re thrilled to offer several well-lit and handsomely landscaped parks and green spaces that reveal our dedication to the environment and maximize views of our naturally beautiful surroundings. Outside the gates, you’ll find just as many opportunities to explore the great outdoors- from protected sanctuaries to a botanical slice of paradise, we’ve got it all.
