Crystal Lagoons Coming to Tampa Bay Area
What is it?
The Crystal Lagoon, a 7-acre lagoon at the center of the Tampa Bay Area neighborhood is a mammoth swimming pool, with crystal blue, see-through waters. The lagoon will be the first in the nation and will open in spring 2018 with a special guest – Olympic gold medal swimmer Michael Phelps.
Phelps signed on with Crystal Lagoons as its “Global Ambassador.” He will promote swimming and water sports around the world, with appearances at Crystal Lagoon properties, including the location in Tampa Bay, according to a news release from The Conroy Martinez Group.
Details and a date for the grand opening are to be determined.
What can we do there?
The residents can enjoy aquatic activities, including swimming, kayaking, paddle-boarding and sailing small boats. There also will be Caribbean-style beaches and cabanas, a waterslide, an entertainment plaza, a yoga lawn and an area for special events.
Can everyone go there?
The lagoon will have some limited guest opportunities, as well. But, the Crystal Lagoon is not designed to be a public water park. Instead, it will function more like a private golf course.
Where will the water come from?
The water will be purchased from the county to fill the lagoon. Once it is filled, Metro officials estimate the lagoon will use 50 times less water than a park of the same size and 30 times less water than a golf course.
Will the lagoon be located in a neighborhood?
There will be about 2,000 homes when completed. Residents will participate in the first “smart gigabit community” in the nation, with UltraFi technology as a built-in feature of the community, indoors and outdoors, and will be a part of a “Connected City”.
This Crystal Lagoon is one of many to come. Contact me to find out where the Lagoons will be built and the homes you can buy to have access to them.
