In 2003, the concept of a master-planned 1,500-acres community was introduced to the City of Lavon by a visionary group led by developer Paul Cheng. Constructed in several phases, Grand Heritage would ultimately house over 1,400 residential single-family dwellings when completed. It was intended to promote a lifestyle of community and in-community entertainment that could be enjoyed by all, from young families just starting out to the elderly and retired. The concept would include commercial property that would then invite commerce and provide to the community the public support and conveniences found in more populated areas of the Metroplex. In 2005 this community was recognized as the Best Residential Project in the Dallas Metroplex and awarded the Dallas Business Journal Best Real Estate Deal award for this achievement.
Grand Heritage has luxurious amenities and recreational activities for all ages. The Splash Zone is an impressive fun aquatic center composed of two pools and a splash park totaling 300,000 gallons. The multi-million dollar pool features an enclosed water slide, a wading pool, a splash park full of fun water toys, a swim-up bar and an adult lap pool. Residents can also enjoy the $5 million 18,000 square-foot Heritage Club featuring a state-of-the-art fitness center and locker facility complete with treadmills and full complement of free weight workout equipment, spacious individual party rooms, a grand ballroom, a commercial grade kitchen, and a 4,000 square-foot party patio. The Club also has a great Tech Center offering computers, video game rooms, Play Stations, X Boxes and Nintendo Wii systems with an array of games for residents to play.
Just beyond the adjoining forest, 21,000 acres of Lake Lavon provide ample opportunities for outdoor family activities such as hiking, running, boating, fishing, and camping. There are 16 boat ramp facilities around the lake, of which 8 have courtesy docks. The park areas offer managed trails for hiking, biking and horseback riding. With an abundance of options to stay active, spend time with family and appreciate the nature, Grand Heritage was truly built to "enjoy more, at home."
