Welcome to Park Shore
A welcoming and luxurious community for families
Lying right along the Gulf of Mexico, Park Shore is a family-centric community that is extremely attractive to many Naples homebuyers. The area consists of more than 600 single-family homes, 25 high-rise condos, and many more mid-rise condos and commercial properties. All of these properties are highly sought-after, as Park Shore is an incredible place to settle down and live the ideal Florida lifestyle.
This area was originally nothing like it is today — there were no luxury condominiums or grand mansions here in the beginning! In 1964, Raymond Lutgert purchased this undeveloped land and envisioned building an exclusive and pristine community along the Gulf. He saw this vision through, and during the next few years, he brought together a skillful team of engineers and architects in order to lead the building of Collier County’s first planned unit development district.
Nowadays, this area is exactly what Lutgert envisioned it to be. The well-kept neighborhoods and stunning properties make this area highly attractive to homebuyers, and the array of modern amenities only adds to the draw to this area.
