“THE VILLAGES, FLORIDA’S FRIENDLIEST HOMETOWN. THE VILLAGES.” WELCOME TO THIS MONTH’S EDITION OF THE VILLAGES
VMAIL. WE’RE JOINING VILLAGERS AND THEIR FURRY FRIENDS
FROM ACROSS THE COMMUNITY, CELEBRATING THE GRAND OPENING OF THE DUDLEY CANINE PARK AND
ARCHERY RANGE IN THE VILLAGE OF DESOTO. WE’LL ALSO BE TRAVELING TO LAKE SUMTER LANDING,
WHERE YOU CAN LEARN NEW WAYS TO EXPLORE NATURE. BUT FIRST, LET’S CHECK OUT THE CANINE PARK
AND, AND RIGHT NEXT DOOR, THE ARCHERY RANGE. YOU CAN ENJOY A SHADED SEATING AREA, WHILE
YOUR PUPS HAVE ACCESS TO NEVER-BEFORE-OFFERED AGILITY EQUIPMENT. FEATURING BEAMS, BOULDERS AND TUNNELS. AND DON’T WORRY, THERE ARE DRINKING FOUNTAINS
FOR BOTH YOU AND YOUR DOG, SO YOU CAN SPEND AS MUCH TIME AS YOU WANT ENJOYING THE DUDLEY
CANINE PARK. SO WHO’D YOU BRING OUT WITH YOU TODAY? OF COURSE MY LOVELY WIFE PAT, AND OUR GREAT
DOG, JUST JOSI. WE LOVE, SHE’S BEEN WAITING FOR IT, FOR, WELL
EVER SINCE WE’VE BEEN DOWN HERE. SO SHE’S EXCITED. WONDERFUL. HOW LONG HAVE YOU HAD JOSI? SHE’LL BE 3 THIS SUMMER. SO JUDY WHAT BRINGS YOU AND BOB OUT HERE TODAY? WELL THE DOG OPENING FOR SURE. BUT THE AGILITY MATERIALS THAT ARE OUT HERE
ARE FANTASTIC. AND SO THAT’S ONE OF THE REASONS WHY WE CAME
OUT. AND ALSO BECAUSE YOU HAVE A SHADED AREA HERE FOR PEOPLE WHICH IS REALLY A BONUS FOR
US. AND I UNDERSTAND BOB’S QUITE THE AGILITY DOG. CAN YOU TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT THAT? WELL, BOB TOOK AGILITY TRAINING. AND I WON’T SAY THAT HE’S A MASTER OF IT,
BUT HE CERTAINLY HAS ENJOYED SOME OF IT ANYWAY. AND WHAT DO YOU AND JOSI DO MOST TOGETHER? WE WALK. WE DO A LOT OF WALKING. YES. SHE LOVES THE, THE NEW REC CENTER OVER THERE. THE DESOTO ONE. AND WALK ALL THE WAY AROUND
THAT. SHE LOVES THAT. WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE THING THAT YOU AND BOB
DO TOGETHER? UH GOSH, I THINK GOING TO DOG PARKS BECAUSE
I GO TO DOG PARKS PROBABLY 3-4 TIMES A WEEK, AND I WALK SO I GET MY EXERCISE IN. AND HE
HAS FUN AND I HAVE FUN. AND DOES HE HAVE A COLLECTION OF BOW TIES
OR IS THIS IS ONLY ONE? OH NO HE HAS A COLLECTION. (LAUGHS) HE HAS A CHRISTMAS BOW TIE, AND A VALENTINES
BOW TIE, YOU KNOW, YEAH. JOSI, WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE DOG PARK? YEAH. RIGHT NEXT DOOR IS THE DUDLEY ARCHERY RANGE. OUR SECOND RANGE IN THE VILLAGES, JOINING
THE PARADISE ARCHERY RANGE. WHETHER YOU’RE NEW TO THE SPORT, OR AN EXPERIENCED
ARCHER, WE INVITE YOU TO COME OUT AND GIVE IT A SHOT. AND RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER IN THE VILLAGE
OF DESOTO, WE HAVE A BRAND NEW NEIGHBORHOOD READY FOR YOU TO BUILD YOUR DREAM HOME. SURROUNDING THE SUGAR CANE RECREATION AREA
AND THE DUDLEY CANINE PARK AND ARCHERY RANGE, YOU CAN BUILD YOUR DREAM HOME ON A PICTURESQUE
HOME SITE. IF YOU LOVE A SERENE SETTING TO WAKE UP TO
WITH YOUR MORNING COFFEE, OR TO WIND DOWN WITH AFTER A LONG DAY OF PLAY, THIS JUST MAY
BE THE LOCATION FOR YOU. AS OUR RECREATION OPPORTUNITIES CONTINUE TO
GROW IN THE VILLAGE OF DESOTO, WE’RE ALSO EXPANDING OUR OFFERINGS ELSEWHERE IN THE COMMUNITY. WE’RE EXCITED TO INTRODUCE OUR ALL-NEW FISHING,
KAYAKING, AND NATURE TOURS DEPARTING FROM RIGHT HERE IN LAKE SUMTER LANDING. MY NAME IS LINDA SCIULLO, AND I TOOK PART
IN A PONTOON NATURE TOUR ON LAKE SUMTER LANDING. WELL I’M JACQUIE LATZER, AND I WAS LUCKY ENOUGH
TO TAKE ONE OF THESE KAYAKING TRIPS AROUND LAKE SUMTER. MY FAVORITE PART ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE WAS
INTERACTING WITH THE TWO NATURALISTS FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA. THEIR KNOWLEDGE OF FLORIDA’S PLANTS, WILDLIFE
WAS AMAZING. TO BE ABLE TO TAKE A MEANDERING CRUISE ALONG
THE SHORE, IT WAS WONDERFUL. IT’S AN OPPORTUNITY TO SEE THE VILLAGES FROM
ANOTHER PERSPECTIVE, TO ENJOY NATURE, AND TO JUST BE APPRECIATIVE OF WHAT WE HAVE AROUND
US HERE AT THE VILLAGES. I THINK MY FAVORITE PART OF THE EXPERIENCE
WAS GETTING ANOTHER PERSPECTIVE OF LAKE SUMTER LANDING, SEEING FROM ACROSS THE LAKE. I LOVE NATURE. I’M OUTSIDE ALL THE TIME. I COME DOWN HERE A LOT TO WALK THE BOARDWALK,
I’M JUST AN OUTSIDE KIND OF PERSON. BUT I’LL NEVER LOOK AT THE LAKE THE SAME WAY
AGAIN. JUST BECAUSE, I KNOW IT HOLDS SECRETS I DIDN’T
KNOW BEFORE. THE KAYAK GIVES ME A CHANCE TO ACTUALLY PROPEL
MYSELF SO THAT I’M INDEPENDENT YET ONE WITH NATURE, AND THAT’S VERY UPLIFTING. NOW MOVING A LITTLE FURTHER NORTH IN OUR COMMUNITY
TO THE VILLAGE OF CHATHAM, WE’RE EXCITED TO INTRODUCE A BRAND NEW NEIGHBORHOOD READY FOR
YOU TO ENJOY, THE SOULLIERE COURTYARD VILLAS. THESE BUNGALOW STYLE VILLAS OFFER A GREAT
WAY OF LIFE, WITH PRIVACY COURTYARDS, OPEN FLOORPLANS, AND EASY LOW-MAINTENANCE LIVING. AND BEST OF ALL, YOU’RE JUST A GOLF CAR RIDE
AWAY FROM ALL YOUR DAILY CONVENIENCES AND LIFESTYLE AMENITIES, INCLUDING THE MULBERRY
SHOPPING PLAZA, OUR HORSE-COUNTRY THEMED MULBERRY RECREATION CENTER, THE VILLAGES HEALTH, AND
THE NANCY LOPEZ LEGACY COUNTRY CLUB, JUST TO NAME A FEW. THANKS FOR JOINING US ON THIS MONTH’S EDITION
OF THE VILLAGES VMAIL. WE’LL SEE YOU AROUND TOWN. LOVIN’ THE LIFESTYLE. “THE VILLAGES”.

  1. Do you have to have your own equipment to use the archery range, or are there bows and arrows available there?

  2. I stay clear of dog parks but this is beyond a dog park! My boy will love this! A selling point for sure!
