Crystal Gardens, a superb lake community in the Avondale area has an abundance of great, upscale, waterfront homes. This neighborhood features over 20 separate bodies of water covering 72 acres, and the lakes are an important part of the Avondale Wetland Project, a working ecosystem that supports an aquatic wildlife habitat. Lake water is kept clean by utilitarian fish which eat insects that would otherwise negatively impact water quality, and by working plants, such as bulrush, which grow in many of the lakes. Since the water is part of the wetland project, boating is not an activity supported in this waterside enclave; the upside of no boats, is quiet waterfront living. Many homes with lake frontage provide a view fence, helping to improve the safety of the property for small children, while still affording wonderful views of the water. Additionally, this neighborhood has over 8 miles of walking paths around the perimeter of the calming water, providing residents with ample opportunities for lakeside exercise. An extensive green belt and several on-site children’s play grounds are other valuable features of Crystal Gardens. Landscaping in this prestigious desert oasis features low maintenance native desertscapes accentuated with stunning palms, gorgeous fruit trees, and blooming shrubbery.
Crystal Gardens is conveniently located only 1 mile from the I-10 and 101 Freeways. Also, nearby Glendale boasts the Westgate City Center, a mixed use development featuring the Jobing.com Arena, formerly known as Glendale Arena; and home to the NHL Coyotes. Adjacent to the Jobing.com Arena is Cardinals Stadium, residence of the Arizona Cardinals and site of Super Bowl XLII. Families will love the Avondale Friendship Park with its 3 different playgrounds, softball, soccer, and football fields, as well as multiple basketball and tennis courts; and while at the park be sure and make time to visit the Japanese Gardens. With the proximity to so many great attractions, and the abundance of beautiful lake front homes, it is easy to realize why Crystal Gardens is one of Avondale’s most livable and sought after lake communities.
