In 1995, the Village of Wellington became the County’s 37th municipality, through incorporation. Shortly thereafter, Village founders recognized the need for a place of gathering. As the Village evaluated various potential locations for a gathering, the existence of the original Wellington Country Club and Pool was a key element in selecting what is known today as Town Center. Beginning in 2009, with the ‘Boulevarding’ of Forest Hill and the re-building of the community pool, the Village set in motion construction Town Center, as our gathering destination. In 2010, the amphitheater and Scott’s Place barrier-free playground were constructed. In late 2013, the Village purchased the Lake Wellington Professional Center, which added property and lakefront footage to the Town Center. This was followed by the completion of the Tennis and the Community Centers in 2015. This evolution in private and public investment has created what we known today as Town Center. Town Center is located on Forest Hill Boulevard at Town Center Drive and Ken Adams Way. It is home to Village Hall, Scott’s Place barrier-free playground, the Patriot Memorial, the Wellington amphitheater, aquatics center, Wellington Community Center, and the Lake Wellington Professional Center. Why “Town Center’? Wellington has never had a true gathering place, a place where people can come together and share activities. For more than a decade the Village has been working on creating a community gathering place at Town Center. We started with the pool and clubhouse that were a part of the original Wellington golf course. Beginning in 2008, Council began a series of improvements, the amphitheater, Scott’s Place playground, the new Community Center, Village Hall, and the Patriot Memorial. The next addition will be a boardwalk along lake Wellington. The Town Center Master Plan is our look at the future. It is the tool that we will use to incorporate our residents’ needs and wishes into future facilities and programs in the heart of our Village. The information gathered during the public participation process will guide Council in their decision-making process.
