1. The Jerico River
Water lovers: Not only are you just an hour drive from the beaches of Tybee Island, but your neighborhood also has prime access to the coastal waterways. The Jerico River, a 13-mile tidal stretch, spans the side of Waterford Landings and is home to an array of marine life, from oysters to Georgia shrimp to pods of friendly dolphins—you’re bound to see some water creatures swimming past whenever you’re standing on the community docks.
The open saltwater marshland also offers deep-water access to St. Catherine’s Sound, a popular Savannah getaway when the weather gets nice (which is the majority of the year!). Fishers can cast their lines. Boat owners can dock their boats, back their water toys into the Jerico, or store their watercrafts in the community storage facility. Of course, there’s also the natural beauty of living so close to water: the gorgeous sunsets over the Georgia marsh and the charm of moss-draped live oaks.
2. Amenities Abound
In addition to all the water-related perks, Waterford Landing also provides residents with numerous amenities. There’s a community-owned swimming pool, clubhouse, recreational park with pavilion, basketball courts, and a fun jungle gym for kids! Although the community no longer has a golf course, they have transformed the area into a “green buffer zone,” which will seclude the neighborhood from any encroaching residential or commercial development, maintaining the peacefulness of the community.
The golf cart roads are now used for walking and biking trails. A handful of these amenities were previously only available to annual members, but now the entire neighborhood can enjoy them! Waterford Landing also has a Home Owners Association (HOA), which provides numerous benefits, such as helping maintain the value and aesthetic of the community.
3. Savannah & Pooler
Just hop on I-95 and you’re on your way to either Pooler or Savannah! Whether you want to head to Pooler to visit the Tangler Outlets or spend the evening in Savannah surrounded by all that our amazing city has to offer, Waterford Landing’s location gives residents an easy way to get there.
