ROWLETT- The City of Rowlett announced this afternoon that its new $1-billion Bayside mixed-used lakefront development, which breaks ground April 26 at the former Robertson Park at I-30 and Dalrock, will include the first Crystal Lagoon and largest water fountain in Texas.
The eight-acre Lagoon, described as an idyllic white sand beach paradise, will be 25 times times the size of an Olympic swimming pool and equivalent to 10 football fields of sparkling turquoise water.
“Ideal for sailing, stand-up paddle boarding and more, the environmentally sustainable Crystal Lagoon uses 50 percent less water than a park of the same size; 30 times less water than an 18-hole golf course; 100 times less chemicals than a swimming pool and up to 50 times less energy than conventional pool filtration systems,” reads the City’s Facebook post.
“In addition to offering beach life, the highlight of the Crystal Lagoon will be the largest fountain in Texas, which will be home to daily and nightly live entertainment with shows featuring music, fire and more – and it’s all open to the public. A state-of-the art “water mist screen” will project an interactive video performance for guests to enjoy, especially while dining at the waterfront restaurants.”
“The Crystal Lagoon will be surrounded by a world class resort and marina, two condominium towers, luxury apartments, single family homes and more than 1 million square feet of mixed use retail/entertainment/restaurant/office space.”
