History in Pictures of Lake Country
(From the Lake Country Sales Brochure) – “Lake Country Estates welcomes you and your family to the good life that comes with lakeside living. Located just 20 minutes north from Ft. Worth’s city center, 1800 acre Lake Country Estates offers resort living a “world apart” from the hustle and bustle of the crowded city. Families can enjoy golf, tennis, fishing, swimming, and horseback riding just minutes from their door. Since Lake Country is close to major arteries, residents are “freeway fast” to all points of the compass. And, when it comes to housing, property owner’s benefit from a concept rarely utilized in residential development… the practice of planning each home on an individual basis. Close to 500 homeowners in the $50,000 to $200,000 price range can demonstrate that no two homes are completely alike. With a church and convenience shopping center onsite, and a first class school system next door, Lake Country Estates offers everything home owners desire in the way of healthy outdoor recreation, nearby facilities, and the biggest benefit of all, friendly neighbors of similar interests and tastes.”
About Lake Country Estates Greenbelts
One of the amenities that makes Lake Country Estates a special place to live is the Greenbelt Park, which consists of six areas, including a boat launch, playground and tennis courts. Residents can obtain keys for access to the tennis courts and waterfront park pavilion when they join to become a member of LCPOA. These greenbelts are shown on the accompanying map. The Greenbelt Park is owned by the LCPOA and is maintained by volunteers (especially adjoining neighbors), who mow and pick up trash or tree limbs.
All LCPOA members may walk or otherwise utilize the greenbelts during the daylight hours, but please remember to pick up after yourself and pets. Additional rules can be found by clicking Rules of Use for Greenbelts
All who utilize or live along the greenbelts are encouraged to help with greenbelt maintenance. If you would like to volunteer to mow or maintain a section on a regular basis, or if you have any questions or concerns about the greenbelts, please contact the LCPOA Administrative Assistant at firstname.lastname@example.org
