A World of Beautiful

Whether it’s a morning power walk with a friend to Waterway Park as the sun rises, riding bicycles with the grandkids to the marina for an ice cream cone, stopping to watch a Great Blue Heron glide over a sparkling marsh, or listening to a big band concert under a giant starry sky at the Lakefront Amphitheater, this is the place where memories are made every day.

Our mild, coastal weather is a constant invitation to explore and discover our awe-inspiring environment. Home at St. James includes a whole world of beautiful outdoor living.

Woodlands Park

Woodlands Park is St. James’ Natural Wonderland.

Features an outdoor Amphitheater overlooking a peaceful lake that’s encircled by biking and walking trails. Every day residents ride bikes or walk their four-legged friends around the Woodlands Loop. You can also grab your fishing rod and hook a few — the lake is stocked with a variety of fish. The picnic pavilion is perfect for family gatherings and the grassy lawn is great for Frisbee, flag football or launching a kite. Restrooms and parking make it even easier to make a day of it.
