The unique appeal of Talis Park is the friendliness of the community, where nobody is a stranger for very long, activities are numerous with a focus on healthy living and in being outdoors, either walking on the numerous trails, playing golf (18-holes),

The magnificent green lawns, wide beltways and fairways, sloping hills and winding canals and lakes, making one feel as if you were in Tuscany, Italy.
After crossing over the bridge in the center of the property, you come to the open green space surrounding the Oblesque, just at the entrance to the Vyne House complex and Rotunda.
