Heron Bay Residents Enjoy Sunset Picnic

The south Atlanta lake community hosted a neighborhood picnic at sunset for their residents.

Atlanta, GA, July 24, 2009 --(PR.com)-- Heron Bay Golf and Country Club, a master planned development in Locust Grove, along with the Heron Bay Community Association and the Heron Bay Community Liaison Committee hosted a Sunset Picnic from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Lakefront Park located on the Cole Reservoir. The picnic was designed to create an understanding of the various neighborhood committees and to also encourage residents to support their community by nominating themselves or their neighbors for the upcoming term.

Residents from the Henry County new homes were encouraged to bring blankets, chairs and stocked picnic baskets to the community event. The Heron Bay Community Association provided all residents with ice cream.

The Lakefront Park was completed last year within Heron Bay along the shore of the Cole Reservoir which offers breathtaking views and is the ideal location to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. The park features a large, stunning pavilion with a catering kitchen, overhead fans, picnic tables, fire pits, an IPOD docking station and swings.

“The Heron Bay Community Association along with the support of the Heron Bay Committees have made it a goal to host several events and seminars throughout the year to encourage our residents to meet their neighbors,” said Sheila Wolfe, Heron Bay’s HOA Manager. “While the Sunset Picnic will provide a beautiful ambiance, it will also provide a wonderful opportunity for our residents to learn more about their neighborhood committees and community leaders.”

The Lakefront Park is the newest of many amenities residents at the Atlanta lake community enjoy, including an aquatic center, Tennis Center, miles of sidewalks and nature trails and a 5,000 sq. ft. Community Lodge with fitness center. Residents may also choose to join Canongate at Heron Bay, a beautiful and challenging 7,300 yard, par-72 golf course. Home owners also have access to fishing and non-motorized boating on Henry County’s 1,100-acre Cole Reservoir, which is adjacent to the beautiful master planned community.

To visit the South Atlanta master-planned development, take I-75 South to Exit 216. Turn right and proceed five miles to Heron Bay Golf & Country Club. Heron Bay is on the right.
