Winterset neighborhoods offer residents a variety of amenities, featuring several outdoor activities designed to make the most of the beautiful, wooded surroundings. A complete list of amenities is available in the sales office:
• Community center
• Tennis courts
• Over 5 miles of walking trails
• Fishing lakes
• Golf chipping area
• Several designated parks
• Numerous ”pocket parks” including several butterfly parks
Two of the three community pools are geared specifically for children, with zero entry slopes and water park features. Opening spring 2008, the Winterset Valley pool and cabana will also showcase a state of the art slide. Competitive swimmers can also join the Winterset Sharks swim team, which practices in one of the competition size pools. The community center may also be used at very little cost for birthday parties, swim parties, receptions, meetings, or other events by scheduling with the full time community association staff.
Many clubs offer residents a chance to meet new friends including the recently established Gale Communities Home & Garden Club. Whether you enjoy Bunco, card games, golf, gardening, or just an occasional BBQ, Winterset Valley provides many opportunities for down time with friends.
All of this sits just a short bicycle ride away from over 5,000 acres of parkland grounds surrounding Longview Lake. In addition to boating and fishing at Longview Lake, there are ball fields, two public golf courses, shelter areas for friendly gatherings and/or cook outs, and an extensive network of walking/biking trails.
