Unparalleled in the metropolitan area, Hawthorn Lake has found the perfect balance between appreciation and enjoyment of nature.
The 2,000' long, 16 acre lake meets the competitive specifications of the American Water Ski Association and contains design features such as turn islands, contoured shores and controlled water levels.
Whether skiing, boating or swimming, all residents and their guests reserve the exclusive rights to enjoy Hawthorn Lake.
The excitement provided by the lake is equaled by the beauty of its surroundings. Dramatic efforts have been made to both preserve and enhance the environment. Over 30 acres have been dedicated to a park, wetland/wildlife habitat, and green space.
Take a morning jog or evening walk around the 1.3 mile nature trail. Residents may see Sandhill cranes or encounter a white-tailed deer.
