Red Bird WaterWay / Ogeechee River:  

Red Bird WaterWay is a wide and deep channel that merges into the Intracoastal Waterway, the Ogeechee River, and after a short journey, the Atlantic Ocean. Home of the planned WaterWays Marina, Red Bird WaterWay provides easy access to Georgia’s pristine barrier islands and beaches

Cottenham Trail:

The Cottenham Trail features five miles of back-country trails that are perfect for biking and pedestrians alike. Cottenham Trail beckons to those with a passion for exploration and a love of natural beauty. Whether you prefer an afternoon nature hike or a leisurely walk under century-old oak canopies, there’s an adventure waiting for everyone at WaterWays along the Cottenham  Trail.    

Ossabaw / Wassaw Islands:

Nestled along the Atlantic coast, Georgia’s barrier islands are among the most pristine tracts of land found anywhere in the United States. Ossabaw and Wassaw, barrier islands that lie between  the WaterWays community and the Atlantic Ocean, remain as unspoiled as they did thousands of years ago as approximately two-thirds of their properties are designated heritage preserves, parks, research reserves and wildlife refuges.  Visits to Ossabaw and Wassaw are not soon forgotten.

Native American Influences:

Dating back more than 5,000 years, the original WaterWays property was the home site for the first great Native American civilization in North America. With settlements located at various points along the Ogeechee River and RedBird WaterWays, evidence of life from this historic period has also been discovered within WaterWays,. Arrowheads, pottery, tools and even smoking pipes have been unearthed over the years, and are on display in the HeadWaters Welcome Cottage.

Conservation Areas and  Protected Wetlands:

The WaterWays property is framed by more than six miles of marsh frontage as well as over 2,000-acres of land managed by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. The conservation land features a variety of native environments, including coastal uplands, sandy ridges, tidal creeks and wetland preserves.

WaterWays’ vision has always been to enhance its property’s natural beauty. To ensure the community and its surrounding land is preserved with the upmost respect, WaterWays’ developers walked every center-line of every fairway and lake edge, repeatedly, to ensure the  continued protection of every specimen tree or sensitive ecosystem.
