Welcome to Wellen Park
A master-planned community with a vision for living well
Wellen Park is one of the most unique communities in the country. From its conception, it was designed to be a haven of high-quality life, fun, and serenity. Wellen Park is a close-knit, family-oriented community that is growing quickly and offering new opportunities to its residents with each passing day.
Originally called West Villages, it was recently rebranded to Wellen Park. No matter what you call it, Wellen Park was always intended to be a master-planned community focused on creating the best life Florida has to offer its residents.
Wellen Park is made up of a downtown area and eight distinct communities: Gran Paradiso, Sarasota National, Island Walk, Grand Palm, Oasis, Renaissance, Tortuga, and Boca Royale. With large-scale development underway, they’re building approximately 25,000 new residences with a mix of single-family homes, condos, and villas.
