Community Amenities You Wish You Had

Community Amenities You Wish You HadDo you use your community amenities? You’d be shocked to find out that the vast majority of homeowners who live in a master planned community don’t take advantage of their amenities. For some, the reason is due to simply not knowing these amenities exist. To others, amenities are only for show. In this article, our goal is to help both parties come to a mutual understanding about amenities, their benefits, and why Chesmar’s amenities are so unique when compared to other communities’.

What Are Community Amenities?

Before we get into the fun part (AKA some of Chesmar community amenities) let’s define what we mean when we say “community amenities.” In simple terms, HOA (homeowner’s association) amenities are interior/exterior spaces that are designed to enhance the lifestyle of said community’s residents—providing them with a dedicated area to bond with neighbors/friends/family or partake in a hobby. In many ways, amenities can make or break a community. And that’s due to the fact that these amenities encourage and increase a sense of well-being. With that said, can you think of any amenities that would fit into this niche? Here are a few common community amenities:

  • Pool
  • Gym
  • Clubhouse

A lack of amenities or poorly kept amenities can turn homeowners away and diminish well-being—the very thing they are meant to enhance. So when looking at master planned communities, pay extra attention to these areas!

Parks & Trails

Biking, walking, running, playing—what’s your cup of tea? Getting outside is one of the best ways to improve your mental and physical well-being. To encourage outdoorsmen and newbies alike to participate in outdoor activities, some of Chesmar’s communities have parks and trails! We even have fishing available!

Dog Parks

Want extra space for your dogs? Many of our communities have dog parks or dedicated zones for your furry friends to play. Who knows, you might make a friend, too!


Are you the type of homeowner who’s dreamt of waking up and taking a casual stroll to a nearby cafe for coffee and treats in the morning? Some of our communities have onsite cafes that offer exactly that experience, no long commute required.

Resort-Style Pools & Water Parks

Some of our communities feature resort-style swimming pools with lazy rivers, not to mention a lap pool! Escape to paradise every weekend, soak up the sun, and meet and mingle with your neighbors.
