A Crystal Lagoon and Other Amenities

Buyers interested in Medley at Mirada have been especially impressed with a one-of-a-kind amenity: the 15-acre swimming lagoon. It’s a feature built by Crystal Lagoons, and it’s the largest in the state of Florida. The lagoon gives swimmers and soakers the feeling that they’re in the middle of the open ocean. The water is clean, clear, and treated with fewer chemicals than most swimming pools.

Other amenities include a clubhouse with a modern fitness center and plenty of multipurpose rooms for social events, club meetings, and other activities. In addition to the lagoon, there’s a resort-style pool and a spacious, sun-filled patio. Residents can enjoy the pickleball courts, bocce ball courts, and tennis courts. There’s also a dog park, plenty of greenspace, and trails for walking, jogging, or biking.

Residents won’t run out of things to do. The community plans to host movie nights, socials, group outings, and even pickleball tournaments.

Most homes will have picturesque views of the wetlands, ponds, and nature preserves that border the community.

Medley at Mirada fits nicely into the larger master-planned community of Mirada, which has new and resale homes available to buyers of all ages.

Active adult residents will have access to the clubhouses, pools, and other amenities within the larger community as well.

San Antonio and Tampa: What to Know

Downtown Tampa is only half an hour from Medley at Mirada, and there’s plenty to do for people who enjoy art, sports, and great dining. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers play to a sold-out stadium of football fans every year, and watching the Tampa Bay Lightning play hockey at Amalie Arena makes for a fun trip into the downtown area. The Rays play right across the Howard Frankland Bridge in St. Petersburg, and there’s plenty of spring training baseball in the area when February rolls around.

For a little bit of culture, residents at Medley can enjoy the Tampa Museum of Art and performances at The Straz. Ybor is a fun neighborhood to explore, especially for cigar aficionados and fans of Cuban food. The most popular local restaurants are The Columbia Restaurant and Carmine’s.

Not all the excitement happens in Tampa, however. The local Pasco County area that Medley at Mirada calls home also has a lot of opportunities for recreation and fun. Shopping doesn’t get much better than Tampa Premium Outlets and The Shoppes at Wiregrass, both in nearby Wesley Chapel. It’s also worth a visit to St. Leo’s University in San Antonio, where there’s a golf course and a peaceful shrine and grotto.
