Just in time for the carefree days of summer is an array of new amenities in Manvel’s Sedona Lakes.
A new lakeside playground has been welcoming Mommy and Me groups and after-dinner revelry as children enjoy two new play structures, one designed for youth up to age 5 and the second for older children. A play field separates the two areas, providing space for rounds of tag and other energetic games.
Also new is a 1.5-mile trail around a community lake, ideal for an after-dinner walk or morning jog.
Residents also enjoy a free-form pool with a water slide carved into a picturesque rock waterfall that is a community focal point during the warm months. Zero-entry access allows the youngest swimmers a chance to play at the water’s edge while the more boisterous enjoy the pool’s splash pad. In-the-water tanning beds offer a cool place to relax, as do plentiful shade structures.
Anchoring the pool is an open-air pavilion, the perfect spot for neighborhood gatherings. A fireplace invites year-round use.
A resident social committee maintains an active community calendar with events such ice cream socials, movie nights and holiday-themed parties.
The new amenities are part of developer Landeavor’s $1 million investment in Sedona Lakes since purchasing the community last year. Among the enhancements is a newly landscaped entry.
Builders have opened six model homes in the community and offer designs priced from the $280,000s to the $600,000s. Well known builders in Sedona Lakes include Coventry Homes, Emerald Homes, Highland Homes, J. Patrick Homes and Trendmaker Homes. Inventory homes are underway and buyers can select from choice properties.
Sedona Lakes has an enviable Manvel location near Highway 288 and County Road 101 just south of Pearland. For more information, visit www.sedona-lakes.com. Also, follow Sedona Lakes on Facebook, https://www.facebook.com/SedonaLakes.
