Pretty Wexford Pond with Gazebo grace the
entryway of the Wexford neighborhood, with a wooden plank walkway across the
middle of the pond (fun for visiting the resident geese and fish), and paved
pathway around the entire pond. Lots of fun for bike rides and walks
around the pond with the kids.
Playground, Swimming Pool Tennis Courts --
Great low-key community swimming pool (friends often say it feels like a quiet,
private resort!); beautiful well-maintained tennis courts;
The wide boulevard Wexford neighborhood streets are great
for bicycle riding all through the neighborhood and adjoining neighborhoods (Cate's
Farm; Arcadia). The neighborhood has abundant trees and beautiful
hardwood, old growth trees -- maple trees, oak trees, pear trees.
Wexford Neighborhood Celebrations -- Wexford Neighborhood families get together at the Pool
House for Holiday gatherings The Halloween party is always a huge hit with
the kids (pool house transformed into a Haunted House, with older neighborhood
kids dressing up to delight the younger children). Quite often Halloween crafts
festivities are followed by a Halloween costume parade around the pond path.
The Pool House also is the setting for Fourth of July bicycle
parades and (in some prior years) firework displays; Easter Egg hunts for the
Wexford neighborhood children organized
Wexford neighborhood is only 5 minutes from Mapleview Ice Cream and dairy
