Crystal Lagoons® Windsong Ranch Amenity Praised by Residents17 April, 2020 / News
Prosper, in North Texas, was the first city to include a Caribbean beach-like freshwater lagoon powered by Crystal Lagoons® technology to its amenity offering. Known as Windsong Ranch, the real estate development was featured in the prominent Dallas Morning News which showcased how the development offers homes a wide range of amenities to its residents, with 30 miles of wide walking, hike-and-bike trails, pocket parks, large event lawns and esplanades, a full disc golf course, mountain bike course and large stocked lakes.
The article reflects on how no one could have anticipated the current socioeconomic situation the United States, and indeed the entire world, has faced over the past weeks.
Good news stories have been uncommon, but the strength of local communities and residents have prevailed through it all. Home is where the heart and entire households have come to a standstill for days on end and finding new, creative ways to enjoy time in times of social distancing has become indispensable. It is interesting that during this time, the article reads, that Windsong Ranch developers’ have received high praise from their residents. This is due in large part to the community’s creative open land plan and wide array of amenity.
“I’ve always said this is a special place,” said Craig Martin, developer of Windsong Ranch and partner of Tellus Group LLC. “Our residents are the biggest reason why, but the overall design of the community certainly is a wonderful backdrop”.
“Windsong Ranch has over 30 miles of wide walking, hike-and-bike trails, pocket parks, large event lawns and esplanades, a full disc golf course, mountain bike course and a large-scale crystalline lagoon. Families want big outdoor spaces they can enjoy together, so these are very popular areas for our residents during this time.
“In the initial stages of planning the community, we knew our residents would love these wonderful areas, but we never knew how important they really could be for families,” said Martin. “It’s been wonderful to see our residents continue to be a community of active, happy people during this historic event.”
The amenities are also a big reason why Windsong Ranch was recently recognized as one of the nation’s top master-planned communities by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) for the second consecutive year. It picked up “Lifestyle Director of the Year”, “Master-Planned Community of the Year”, “Best Community Signage” and “Best Lifestyle Program of the Year.”
Residents at Windsong Ranch and their guests can, once current conditions have been reverted, enjoy stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, swimming or simply go on walks surrounding the lagoon, along the white sand beaches.
Crystal Lagoons has managed to create idyllic beaches with lagoons of crystalline water and excellent quality, in previously unimaginable places, changing the landscape by creating a breathtaking turquoise water destination that can be enjoyed all year round.
Crystal Lagoons is an international innovation company, founded by scientist Fernando Fischmann, which has developed a patent-protected technology that allows the construction and maintenance of unlimited-size clear water lagoons at very low costs.
