Ave Maria Amenities
Living in the Ave Maria community comes with a lot of organized activities, social events and amenities including two parks, a water park, an 18-hole championship golf course, shopping and dining for the entire family to enjoy. The planned town of Ave Maria, in its current Naples location since 2007, centers around the Ave Maria University, a private Catholic university enrolling 1,200 students. But the community that has sprung up around the college offers a wonderful lifestyle for both active adults over 55 and families to enjoy year-round entertainment and fun for sports enthusiasts of all ages.
Beginning with the two on-site parks, Ave Maria residents can enjoy both the South Park and North Park located at the ends of its community, featuring soccer and softball fields, 8 bocce ball courts, 8 pickle ball courts, basketball courts, walking and running trails, a dog park, playground and picnic pavilions. Next to North Park stands a well-loved Water Park, one of the best parks in the area. The Water Park provides resort-style fun and includes interactive fountains, slides, pools, water volleyball, water aerobics and more.
For golfers, the semi-private Panther Golf Club features an 18-hole championship golf course with 5 practice greens, a short game with 2 practice sand bunkers and an aqua driving range with natural turf target greens. PGA pros are on-site for individual lessons and group clinics. A fully-stocked Pro Shop is part of the club. Next to the golf club is the brand new Oasis Club completed last February that is a world-class amenity center featuring over 12,000 square feet of entertainment and fitness space with resort and lap pools, tennis and bocce ball courts, a café, art studio and fire pit. Another fitness center, the Ave Maria Fitness Center, located in the Town Center, is brand new and houses state-of-the-art treadmills, stationery bikes and other equipment as well as offering exercise classes.
