The Town Square serves as the heart of the community.  Like any other small town, there are retail-friendly establishments such as cafes, a post office, a frozen yogurt shop, nail salon, pet store and of course, a place to get your pizza!  This center is a great place for residents to meet, gather in the park, grab a cup of coffee with a loved one or friend at a local café, or just simply stroll around.
