Continued good fall weather has motivated Houstonians to search for the ideal outdoor experience. With that in mind, Texas’ largest Crystal Lagoons® water amenity known as Lago Mar, in Texas City, has announced a new weekend Oktober Lagoonfest, an event that adds a series of fall-themed water activities at the popular crystalline water and beach feature.
Following Summer Lagoonfest, which ran throughout the summer, Oktober Lagoonfest will open at the weekends, granting public access to non-residents through to November 1.
Guests at the new Oktober Lagoonfest can dive into activities including an inflatable obstacle course, kayaking, sailing, electric jetboards, and stand-up paddleboards and free yoga and HIIT cardio classes over-looking the pure turquoise lagoon and idyllic white sand beaches.
The 12-acre Lago Mar crystalline lagoon offers a mile of shoreline and holds 24 million gallons of water, and is equivalent to 14 NFL football fields. The lagoon is the signature feature of a future 100-acre mixed-use entertainment district being built at the entrance to Lago Mar, which already generates US $50.000 in daily ticket revenues, food and beverages, sponsorship, equipment rentals, etc.
Future phases of development around the lagoon will include hotels, condos, retail, dining, entertainment, as well as a separate pay-for-access beach club with multiple beaches for the general public.
Unique water amenity
The Lago Mar lagoon spans more than a quarter of a mile from end to end and has more than a mile of shoreline, making it the largest amenity in the U.S. powered by Crystal Lagoons technology, in terms of length and water shoreline. It is also nearly six times larger than Balmoral, the first such lagoon in Texas, also developed together with Land Tejas, located in Humble.
This state-of-the-art, environmentally friendly technology, used to power both lagoons, requires up to 100 times less chemicals than conventional swimming pool or drinking water treatment technologies, and consume only 2% of the energy needed by conventional swimming pool filtration systems.
