Here are just some of the activities you will find at Founders Park.

  • White sand beach

  • NEW skate board park
  • Glass bottom boat rental
  • BBQ area for grilling

This wonderful place is located less than one mile from our house. A lot of people ride their bikes or golf cars instead of driving. You can also run over by boat, anchor up just off the beach and swim on over. Our family has enjoyed many days at Founders Park as well as many events held here each year. Our favorite is the Fourth of July fireworks celebration. You can anchor up and sit in your boat to watch the fireworks. It’s really a treat for the whole family.
