Wide Open Spaces: There’s Room to Wander in Viridian

Wide Open Spaces: There’s Room to Wander in Viridian

What do you envision when you hear the word “wander?” If your mind’s eye is seeing aimless strolls by a lake or casual walks on trails with no end in sight, then Viridian has just what you’re looking for.

How Big is 2,000 Acres of Nature?

Sometimes it’s hard to fathom how much nature permeates throughout Viridian’s master plan. This verdant master-planned community boasts 2,000 acres of green space, the equivalent of roughly 87,120,000 square feet. 

To put it into comparison, a single football field takes up a little over one acre of land. That’s a lot of parks, trails, and natural green space!

Top 3 Ways to Explore & Wander in Viridian

Of the many ways to wander throughout Viridian, we’ve boiled it down to our top three:

#1. The Obvious Answer: Miles of Trails

A series of interconnected paved trails meander through the community, around Lake Viridian, and even connect past the community to River Legacy Park, a non-profit nature reserve neighboring the community. Jogging, biking, or simply walking – there’s always something new to discover when you’re out on the trail.

Viridian’s trail system is well maintained and only steps from your front door. The amazing pocket parks are everywhere throughout the community, ensuring your morning or afternoon walks have plenty of places to rest and recharge. Kids in Viridian also have access to multiple playgrounds in the community for climbing, sliding, and swinging the day away.

The community is also dog-friendly, and your four-legged family members even have a park just for them, Arrowhead Dog Park. Who said you had to be alone in your wandering?

#2. Exploration on the Water

When you’d like to kick the adventure up a notch, take to Lake Viridian for a more marine experience. From the shores of Lake Viridian, a host of water activities await. Residents can play on the beach or make a splash with various lake activities:
