Over 50s developer Halcyon has stepped up the pace at Halcyon Lakeside in Bli Bli with the opening of a sophisticated new Lifestyle and Recreation Precinct that puts a swag of new facilities at easy reach for home owners.
Halcyon’s strong focus on state of the art recreation facilities within each of its communities allows over 50s active living to be convenient, fun, accessible and stress-free.
Halcyon Lakeside home owners are plunging into the huge array of activities, facilities and events now at their doorstep in the community’s spectacular new $4 million lifestyle facilities that would rival any in a five-star resort.
The club, which is created exclusively for home owners, features an impressive raised tennis court, a health and wellness centre with fully-equipped gym and circuit room, all set against the backdrop of a mineral salt resort pool and sunset bar.
For the active creative types, there is an arts precinct that caters for potters, messy art projects, wood working and metal work.
Halcyon Lakeside community manager Donna Osborne said the Rec Club’s packed timetable of activities, diverse interest groups and regular social events were allowing home owners to make the most of their Halcyon days.
“A great deal of thought and planning went into the new Recreation Club to ensure it has something for all home owners,” Mrs Osborne said.
“From aqua aerobics, Zumba and Pickleball to home brewing, snooker challenges and Happy Hour at the Sunset Bar, the Recreation Club is a five-star hub of fun, friendship, fitness and relaxation. It’s become the heart of the community.
“Our home owners are getting active and involved, and living each day to the full. All they have to do is show up, the rest has already been done for them.”
Home owners Alan and Liz Hallgath are lapping up their new life in a Halcyon lifestyle community and have created a special Halcyon diary to keep track of all their activities.
“We have never been so busy and we can’t fit everything in,” Liz said.
“We have to be careful not to double-book ourselves.
“I’m doing circuit class, water aerobics and jewellery making on a Monday, craft on Tuesday, circuit class again on Wednesday and art on Thursday, it’s full-on every day.
“And there are new groups forming all the time.”
Alan fills his days with the garden club, distilling group, aqua aerobics, men’s movie nights and tennis, which Liz also plays.
“I’m so busy that it’s hard to get ‘me’ time,” he joked.
“I like the mix of what we do and there are things that I haven’t done yet that I’d like to try.”
Evenings are busy too with Liz and Alan sometimes finding they have just one night a week free.
“It’s very social here and we love the friendship and that feeling of having the support of a community around us,” Liz said.
Located in the coastal township of Bli Bli Halcyon Lakeside is framed by 450 metres of lake frontage and natural bushland.
New homes within the masterplanned community are now selling from $579,000.
