Waterside Place

1. Live Music at the Plaza 

What could be better after a busy week at work on Friday evening than to spend some outside time listening to live music?

Come to Waterside Place Entertainment at The Plaza each Friday from 6:00 to 9:00 pm. Sit outside, taking in views of the waterfront and Kingfisher Lake. 

With different entertainment each week, you're sure to look forward to Friday nights outside at The Plaza. Don't worry about cooking either. 

Stop by the Good Liquid Brewing Co for a sunset bite after the entertainment wraps up.

2. Fishing on Saturdays

One of the fun things about living in southern Florida is all the beautiful waterways in the area. What better way to fill up some of your free time than doing some fishing with your family in those waters?

Want to learn a little more about fishing in the area? Take advantage of the event Fishing on Saturdays. Learn from area experts what you need to know, including the art of casting, being a good angler, and knot tying.

You'll even get a chance to try out your skills when you head over to beautiful Lake Patton.

3. Yoga in the Park

Looking for a way to get out of the house and enjoy sunny Florida weather? Not only do you get the outdoors, but you also get in a bit of exercise too.

Grab a friend and head to the park at Waterside Place for Sunday morning yoga. This is a nice gentle yoga session where you can relax and get zen for the week ahead. 

You can also enjoy the views of the water while stretching. Make the most of it and head to the farmer's market when you finish your stretching.

4. Lakewood Ranch Farmers' Market 

The Farmer's Market at Lakewood Ranch has a new home, and you get to reap the benefits. 

Take advantage when 90+ of Florida's best farmers bring their harvest to Lakewood Ranch. 

Aside from all the freshest organic produce, you can also take advantage of: 

  • Fresh flowers
  • Specialty spices & rubs
  • Fresh from the hive honey
  • Fresh bread and baked goods
  • Prepared foods
  • Pet products
  • Jewelry

You'll also benefit from enjoying a variety of local musicians, great food, and interactive art.

5. Tennis 4 Adults

Are you looking for a little friendly and competitive exercise? How about taking advantage of the Tennis 4 Adults gathering. 

Bring your spouse or a friend and gather for a friendly tennis match with your neighbors. On the fourth Tuesday of each month, you can work on your tennis game. 

Never played tennis or feeling a little rusty, but that's okay. Come and learn and sharpen up your racket skills.

6. Ranch Nite Wednesdays

Sometimes by midweek, you need something fun to liven up the week. Visit the Waterside Place Town Center for Ranch Night Wednesdays.

What's better than weeknight food trucks, dessert trucks, live music, and an outdoor bar from Good Liquid Brewing & Scratch Kitchen?

Of course, your furry friends might want to join you. Dogs are welcome on a leash. You must, however, leave your personal coolers at home. 

7. Field Bocce

Maybe you're not inclined to do more physical sports like volleyball, basketball, or tennis, but still want to socialize and gather. 

You need to learn the fun and slightly competitive sport of field bocce. Grab a friend or your spouse and meet on Thursdays from 11:00 to 12:00 at the Waterside Place Park for a friendly game of field bocce.

Don't worry if you know nothing about bocce. It's easy, and someone will welcome you and teach you what you need to know.

8. Volleyball 4 Kids

If your kids need something to do on Sunday, maybe while you do Yoga in the Park or visit the Lakewood Ranch Farmers' Market, send them off to Volleyball 4 Kids. 

They get outside with friends, exercise, and learn some volleyball basics. Then they'll split up into teams where they practice those new skills and play a bit of friendly volleyball.

9. Cornhole 4 Adults

If field bocce doesn't sound like your thing, try out Cornhole 4 Adults on Thursday mornings at Waterside Place Park. 

Enjoy some casual play at cornhole while getting out in the fresh air. Take in the views of the water and park, too.

10. Men's Soccer

Do you miss your days of playing soccer with your buds, the camaraderie, the exercise? 

If you have a passion for soccer, then join others who feel the same. The men's soccer group meets on Saturday mornings for two hours of soccer play and fun.
