about our village

William Green, a resident of the Park, as well as a Councilperson, was a regional administrator for the Federal program and was certainly instrumental in the creation of the Park's singular and distinctive building.

We enjoy many amenities at Windjammer Village; our community offers a junior olympic-sized pool, a tennis court, boat ramp, fishing pier, boat storage, marsh boardwalk, clubhouse, library, and game room, just to name a few.
