F.A.Q. about the Crystal Lagoon

Who can visit the crystal lagoon?

Metro Lagoons are planned with limited Non-Resident Access in mind. The Lagoon at Epperson is currently open for all to enjoy!

When is the best time to visit the lagoon?

The Lagoon is open from 10 AM to sunset, 7 days a week with the exception of being closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas. The best days to visit are Mondays through Fridays when you can find shorter lines for food/drinks as well as smaller crowds all around! Every weekend we're usually near capacity so make sure your tickets are purchased in advance or else they could sell out before you even get here - because who doesn't love summer weekends at home?

The lagoon offers year-round admittance but reserves rights to restrict visitor numbers outside certain hours (10 am – 5 pm). If planning an arrival during one of these periods please check online ahead

How big are these Lagoons?

Some people may not like the idea of a big pool, but for those who do and can afford it, this might be perfect. These giant lakes are more than 100 times as large as an average-sized one; they'll measure in at around 10 football fields or bigger! The specific communities with these lagoons: Southshore Bay will have 5 acres (based on current plans), Bright water has 7-8 acre size estimate, Epperson is over 9 acres while Mirada could possibly house 15+ Acre facility if the development goes smoothly - which isn't guaranteed by any means given construction currently underway elsewhere near its borders already.

What water activities are present at this lagoon?

Water sports that are man-powered without motors like kayaks paddle boats and paddle boards will have a special place in the Lagoons. Paddlers can enjoy these activities with ease of use but also get some fresh air while they play!
