VENICE, Fla. (March 10, 2023) – Wellen Park’s fun-loving lifestyle, waterfront vibes and heartfelt connections come to full-color life in the pages of Wellen Park Living, a new glossy coffee table magazine that recently debuted. The inaugural spring 2023 issue also offers a sneak peek and the first public photographs of Downtown Wellen, including a beautiful cover shot of sunset kayaking on the Grand Lake and a from-the-water perspective of the elegant Solis Hall immersed in natural surroundings as its “parting shot” on the final page.

Wellen Park Living celebrates the excitement and the unique vision of our special community,” said Christine Masney, vice president of marketing for Wellen Park. “We are thrilled to introduce readers to all Wellen Park and Downtown Wellen have to offer and share our insights into the area’s hidden gems, many only locals know about.”
