Why Whitehall Park?

Nature

The park has magnificent Ancient Live Oaks in a setting abutting water and scenic marsh views


Nearby Facilities

The balance of the development will include shops and restaurants within the Whitehall property outside the park.

Improved environmental impact

The park plan reduces the density of the project and eliminates scores of residences. That could reduce the traffic by hundreds of cars a day as compared to the current approved plan.
