The West Villages in Venice FL is now known as Wellen Park.

Wellen Park (formerly The West Villages) is the epicenter of new home development in the Venice FL area, bringing new amenities and business along with it.

The name change to Wellen Park is a result of the developers wish to convey a wellness lifestyle and avoid confusion with The Villages in Ocala, FL.

More about:

The Wellen Park in Venice FL 


The Wellen Park is a master planned community of approximately 10,000 acres, located between the Myakka River and the Gulf of Mexico.  The Wellen Park is the site of what was formerly Thomas Ranch and Taylor Ranch.  Wellen Park will be transformed into a new "city within a city", with parks, walking and biking trails, a new town center, all surrounded by new home communities.  There will eventually be 25,000 residences in The West Villages.


Unlike the nearby master planned community of Lakewood Ranch, Wellen Park is just minutes to your choice of Manasota Beach, Caspersen Beach, Venice Beach, or Nokomis Beach.  It's also just 15 minutes to downtown Venice and it's attractions and activities.

The West Villages Improvement District (now Wellen Park) was created by an act of the Florida Legislature to ensure proper planning and development of this important tract of land.  The role of the WVID is to provide infrastructure and guidelines.  The District may borrow money, issue bonds, levy taxes, user fees, or special assessments.
