Bringing Beach Life to the Public

The Lagoon Development Company develops, operates and owns the ticketed access component of large scale lagoons for swimming and watersports.   The company is responsible for the design, financial feasibility, capitalization, and bottom line profitability of the ticketed access component of several lagoons in different stages of planning, construction and operation including a 2-acre lagoon at Balmoral, the 1st lagoon to be approved for swimming in the US and a 12-acre lagoon at Lago Mar, the largest in Texas.



The Balmoral 2-Acre Lagoon is located in the Humble area of Houston.  The lagoon anchors an 8-Acre amenity village.  It holds 5 million gallons of water.  This lagoon was the first in the United States to be approved for swimming.  The lagoon was delivered in less than 12 months fully amenitized including a 6,000 square foot clubhouse, 2 beaches, mini-golf, hammock lawn, celebration lawn, food truck area, paddle-boarding/kayaking facility, grotto with waterfall, and conventional swimming pool.
