“Whether part of a smaller, intimate setting or large resort-style community, amenities are one way Del Webb encourages residents to realize their full potential as individuals and members of a community,” Del Webb says. “Amenities are more than buildings, pools, and fitness centers; they are invitations to make friends and explore new interests”.
