The Hub of Heartfelt Connections

Now Open!
Part of the Wellen way of life, this welcoming, walkable destination will have something special for everyone — from great eateries to stylish shops and exquisite sunsets.

Downtown Wellen is being designed as a vibrant mixed-use development that will serve as the premier shopping, dining, and entertainment destination for our growing community.

Waterfront Property

The Banyan House has indoor and outdoor seating, as well as an outdoor bar and lounge with breathtaking sunset views.

Craft Beer & Artisan Pizza

After a day of walking by the water and window shopping, nothing quite beats a cold beer and signature slice of pizza from Oak & Stone. 

The Yard

One-stop waterfront destination to gather and graze a diverse line-up of culinary delights served from repurposed shipping containers

Outfitter

So much of Wellen Park’s magic happens at the waterfront — and now, you can shift your perspective of the water to from the water, with paddle boards and kayaks available for rent from the floating dock. We have bicycles and e-bikes available for rent too!

Grand Lake and Trail

All trails lead to the lake! Travel from any one of Wellen Park’s neighborhoods to the lake with ease, and enjoy 2.8 miles of pedestrian paths along the water with uninterrupted views.

Splash Pad

Discover the refreshing joy of linear jets! With endless fun for the kids — as well as space for parents to sit comfortably outside the splash zone — there’s something here for the whole family.

Playground

Our playground is situated within a naturally picturesque setting for friends and families of all ages to get together and have a good time.

The Great Lawn

A dynamic lawn area in the heart of downtown for community festivals, markets, and celebrations

Solis Hall

Solis Hall is primely positioned overlooking the waterfront and adjacent garden — a perfect setting for anything from small and large events, meetings, and even weddings.

Boutique Hotel

The ultimate perch for friends and family looking to stay in Wellen Park, a boutique hotel is coming soon to Downtown Wellen!
