Connect with Nature without Disconnecting
Tampa is one of the fastest growing cities in America – but just because you want to be part of the action doesn’t mean you want to buy right in the center of the hustle & bustle.

Situated on 250 acres of wetlands, woods and parks, WaterGrass features stunning resort-style amenities coupled with classic country charm.
New Tampa Nature Park is just down the road. Bring your bike and cycle on the network of paths into the Flatwoods. Also nearby is Fort Foster State Historic Site located at Hillsborough River State Park.
