Miles of trails around the lake connect to the boardwalk and lake pavilion. A stroll along the trails will lead to the lakeside “Pointe,” a gathering spot with a covered picnic area and a large event lawn. The Pointe will surely become the place to be!

The best part? The lake is easily accessible from any home in the community, with multiple prime homesites overlooking the beautiful water. In The Cove at Magnolia Lakes, every morning begins with a sense of calm and relaxation. In fact, research shows that we’re naturally drawn to water, and we feel more at peace when we’re around it. The “Blue Mind” effect is one of the many health benefits of life near H2O, along with stress relief and boosted immune function.

From social events to personal excursions, waterfront living allows you to feel present and enjoy the beauty of each moment. Take a look at a few of our favorite ways to love the lake:
