Bayside residents know that there’s a lot to love about living in Fenwick Island. Our quaint coastal town boasts a unique sense of community, a pristine slice of the Delaware shore and a charming atmosphere. And now Bayside residents can add one more reason to the list of why they’re proud Fenwick Island residents – the town has recently been received statewide recognition for being a healthy community!
Delaware Gov. Jack Markell recently recognized Fenwick Island’s efforts in creating and maintaining a healthy community, according to an article from Coastal Point. Fenwick Island was one of only five Delaware municipalities to be awarded a grant from the Delaware Coalition for Healthy Eating & Active Living, and the town also received a Delaware Healthy Community Award of Special Merit for 2014.
Gov. Markell stated that this special merit award for small municipalities “recognizes communities that perform exemplary community health promotion work” – particularly impressive work when compared to larger municipalities that have access to more resources. A few elements of Fenwick Island that make it particularly healthy are the 2013 no-smoking ordinances for two town parks and the beach and the town’s “very active” lifestyle, according to the article.
At Bayside, it’s easy for residents to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. Our state-of-the-art indoor fitness center offer various fitness equipment for Bayside residents to use, as well as fitness classes and personal training. If you’d prefer to get your exercise outdoors, our community boasts beautiful nature trails that are perfect for walking, jogging or biking, swimming pools for laps, tennis courts when you’re ready for a match, and basketball and volleyball courts. At The Point, kayaking and paddle boarding are options for waterfront exercise. And let’s not forget all the health benefits you can receive from playing a round of golf – luckily for Bayside residents, our renowned Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course offers the perfect opportunity to enjoy a beautiful game of golf while reaping all the health benefits!
With all these choices for residents to stay fit, Bayside fits in perfectly with the healthy community of Fenwick Island! And there’s no town we’d rather be a part of – known as one of Delaware’s “quiet resorts,” Fenwick Island is the perfect relaxing spot to enjoy the Delaware summer. Small town charm, a beautiful beach, a healthy community, and our incredible new Bayside homes – what more could you want from your beach town?
