The King & Bear is blessed with a wide variety of amenities available to both owners and residents. The state-of-the art fitness center was completed in the fall of 2018. It’s five thousand square feet under roof containing all the latest in work-out equipment. There’s also a separate studio that accommodates an array of physical fitness classes.
Currently, the former-fitness center is undergoing a total renovation that will convert that space into a modernized gathering center known as the Courtside Pavilion. It will be ideal for large parties, events, and meetings. The estimated completion date is June 2020. Once that project is completed the current amenity center will be totally renovated into the Poolside Pavilion. This space is more intimate, designed for smaller groups, and comes with a covered terrace ideal for outside socializing. Given its name, it sits adjacent to the community’s two pools. One is zero-entry, the other is full-sized, perfect for laps. One is heated (in winter), both are fully lit and open into the night. Adjacent to the pools is an adventurous playground for the smaller ones in the family.
Three lighted tennis courts and four lighted pickleball courts accommodate plenty of play. Less than a mile away from the amenities complex is Heritage Park. Under a canopy of majestic oaks, it’s a tranquil spot for kids equipped with a basketball court, soccer goals, volleyball net, swings, a small merry-go-round, and plenty of space to run around. Two miles outside the gates are grassed fields for soccer, football, and baseball, along with two pickleball courts and a dog park for the family pet.
A few of the favorite annual events include the Fall Funfest, the flashlight Easter egg hunt, kids summer combo camp, spring and fall community-wide garage sales and donation pick-ups, 5k fundraisers, school supply drives, food and toy donation drives, and many more. That’s all in addition to the many clubs, fitness classes, water aerobics, swim team, tennis groups, food truck Fridays, and countless other things happening daily.
