Guests will enjoy live music, food, refreshments, pumpkin painting, fall floral arranging, hoverball archery, fishing activities, prizes, model home tours and more. Gear up for adventure and explore this extraordinary community that you can also call home.

“The thought and detail that went into the design of The Preserve is a continuation of what we do every day at Caldwell Communities and have been for more than 30 years – building extraordinary communities that enrich lives,” said Evin Wilkerson, vice president of development for Caldwell Communities. “Opening The Preserve enhances our residents’ opportunities to explore, appreciate and connect with nature while adding to the community’s already robust amenity package.”

The party really is in a nature preserve about a 0.3 mile walk to the event, so guests are encouraged to wear trail-friendly shoes and bring your off-road strollers or wagons.
