A Day of Family Fun in Waterford Point

Luxurious living is lovely, but only with people to share it with.

That’s why Taylor Morrison selected The Tribute in The Colony, Texas as the location of Waterford Point, our exclusive lakeside residence community.

Located on one of Lewisville Lake’s peninsulas, The Tribute Golf and Resort Community is a 2018 People’s Choice Award winner. It combines the best of lakeside living with a resort lifestyle and amenities that are hard to beat.

Located inside The Tribute community, Waterford Point offers the opportunity for fun and relaxation right on the water.

1) Lakeside Mornings

Early in the morning, many residents start their day by taking a trip out on the lake. The canoe & kayak launch allows residents to glide across the lake surface in a small watercraft.

Paddle out onto the water and let the gentle movement of the waves rock your troubles away. As the sun rises, watch the world awaken.

Look for kestrels and kites tucked in the tree branches or ducklings nestled along the lake’s shore.

2) Join the Locals

Out on the water or along the banks, many residents like spending the cool of the morning fishing.

Watch the minnows dart in the shallows. Then, cast out a line with other avid fishermen in pursuit of the freshest fish Lewisville Lake has to offer. Try an assortment of flies, worms, and crickets to lure a crappie or a catfish. You might even reel in a prized largemouth bass.

Ask the locals for fishing tips or merely swap tall tales while you wait for something to tug on your line.

3) Playful Picnics

After bringing in the morning’s catch, pack a picnic lunch and head out to one of the community’s park areas or lakeside pergolas.

Children can play on the colorful collection of swings and slides while mom and dad look on from close by. When the temperature is steamy, the little ones can cool off in the splash park by racing down one of the park’s water slides, or the whole family can go for a refreshing dip in the pool.

Those that want something a little quieter can try a swim in the private Waterford Point clubhouse infinity pool, which overlooks the lake.

4) Eighteen Stories

Amateur and pros alike can venture out for a round of nine or eighteen holes at one of the resort’s two premier golf courses. Laughs will abound as golfers young and old swing away in this centuries-old Scottish sport.

After working up a hearty thirst and appetite, stop in at the Tribute Golf Link Clubhouse to share stories and toast the day’s golf victories.

Golf members can also visit the Old American semi-private Golf Club and see what world-renowned chef Nick Baker has crafted from the carriage house garden.

5) Hangout at the Clubhouse

In the afternoon, teens and adults alike often enjoy hanging out at the Community Clubhouse.

Grab a yoga mat and do a salutation to the sun in the yoga room or venture out to the Zen garden. In the fully equipped fitness room, health enthusiasts can squeeze in a quick workout, or head out for a run along the lakefront or down one of the nearby trails.

If you’re mentally and physically spent after a long week in the office, enjoy a little rest and relaxation by booking a massage from an onsite masseuse who will melt your tension and troubles away.

6) Fun for the Whole Family

At The Tribute, even four-legged family members can get in on the fun. Canine parents can take their pups out for a stroll as the temperatures drop, and then join other doggie moms and dads for a playdate at the community dog park.

Go for an unleashed adventure, play fetch, or work on some new tricks. Enjoy making new friends while allowing your little one to run, bark, and find furry friends of their own.

7) Timeless Classic

As the sun begins to set, families can traipse down to the Bocce court and join a game loved since Roman times.

Toss the boccino down the lane and then pick your teams. Watch to see which loved one can get their ball closest to the boccino without knocking it across the court.

Play a game or maybe two as you watch the waters reflect the colors in the changing sky.

8) Nightlife

Just because the sun goes down doesn’t mean the community turns in for the night. Grab your sweaters, favorite chocolates, cookies, and marshmallows, and then head down to the lakefront fire pits.

Join neighbors sitting by the firelight, and let the peaceful calm of the evening soothe your spirit.

Watch as the fire dances, and the flames lick the marshmallows for a toasted s’more treat.

9) Festivals and More

Families love living at the Waterford Point in the Tribute. Its location on the lake puts residents within a short drive of The Colony, Frisco, Hebron, Hackberry, and Lewisville.

Along with shopping and fabulous restaurants, these communities are home to Movies in the Park, the Summer Clubhouse, and the Bowwow Luau in The Colony, which is free fun for the whole family.

10) Lifestyle Directors

Living the lake life is a relaxing change of pace from the bustle of city life. However, leisurely living doesn’t put a limit on fun.

The on-site community lifestyle director is an expert in helping old, and new residents alike find the perfect way to spend their days.

Our lifestyle directors listen to residents and arrange private outings and community classes to keep boredom at bay.

These directors also set-up community activities like the annual Up, Up and Away! Festival of Flight to encourage a spirit of community for our residents.
