Planned amenities for the 55+ community include a 24,000 square-foot clubhouse featuring a banquet hall, fitness center, indoor pool, and outdoor pool with a patio. Residents will have miles of trails to enjoy in addition to a 470-foot fishing pier on the river.

K. Hovnanian will also provide over 336 acres of open space surrounding the community, including a 131-acre public eco-park adjacent to Chester’s Cross Island Trail as well as a 6.5-acre waterfront park along Macum Creek with parking and restrooms.

Within the Chester River, Eastern Neck National Wildlife Refuge hosts hiking, marsh kayaking, and fishing in a 2,285-acre island preserve.
