We love the location of WaterGrass—in the heart of the active and growing town of Wesley Chapel, Florida, just a short drive from Tampa, and surrounded by all the beautiful natural areas residents enjoy in our community. Families always have something fun to do in this area, packed with entertainment options.

Family Friendly Tampa Bay recently put together a comprehensive list of 75 free and cheap things to do for families in the area. We’ve checked out their incredible list and pulled a few of our favorites! See below for nearby family fun this summer that doesn’t break the bank!

1. Free Summer Kids Movies at Cobb Theatres

See free movies all summer long! They have a great list of titles for their free series, including many popular movies from the past year. Check out the schedule.

2. Cool Off Ice Skating at Florida Hospital Center Ice

Ice skate during public skate times with the family. The cost is $15 (with skate rental), or $49 for a family of four. Find out the public skate hours.

3. Shops at Wiregrass Concerts and Farmers Market

Every first and third Saturday from 10am-2pm, the Shops at Wiregrass hosts a Farmers Market where you can find food, crafts, and live music. Also, stay tuned for more information about their summer concert series!

4. Swim and splash the day away at Sunwest Park

You’ll love this new gem of northwest Pasco County. Enjoy the views of the beautiful white sand of the 70 acre spring-fed lake. You’ll find plenty for everyone to do, including renting a kayak or paddle board, splashing your way through the Aqua Park (an inflatable obstacle course), and more! A great day trip from WaterGrass.

5. Earn a free ticket to a Rays Game by Reading

Visit your local library for a game card, complete the tasks, and earn a free ticket to a Rays game! While you’re at it, join the library’s summer reading club program and earn even more prizes for reading time.

And, as a WaterGrass resident, you’ll love everything that is right within the community for summer fun anytime—parks and playgrounds, basketball and tennis courts, and, of course, the WaterGrass Club, which includes a resort pool with a zero entry section, splash zone, and lap lanes, a brand new Jr. Olympic 6-lane pool, as well as tropical landscaping and a large lanai and several shade structures off the pool area. And, to stay in shape all summer work-out in the state-of-the-art fitness center.

Don’t forget to check out the full list, which includes a ton of awesome ideas in and around Tampa!
