In front of the clubhouse, the community's 4.5 acre great lawn is where social events take place including the annual Harvest Balloon Festival.

Residents range from young children to retired elders. Activities are available for all ages, very family-oriented and many activities are extended beyond the community. Even in such a large subdivision, opinions are considered and new ideas are implemented regularly.

They fine you for 3 weeds sticking out of the grass, flowers, mulch and even for having your trash can out by the curb to long on trash service day. Even tree limbs must be cut 6' above ground! They are too ridiculous on how you maintain your own yard.
