Lake, Beaches, & Beach Club

What activities can we expect at the lake and beach club?

The lake itself is designed for non-motorized activities: swimming, fishing, canoeing, paddle boarding, kayaking, ice skating, hockey,  ice fishing, and definitely some bubble blowing and splashing.

The lake will include docks at the beach club, private docks for each of the lake lots, and semi-private docks at private walkway access points.  A swimming area and dock will be located just off the main sandy beach area.  The lake will be stocked with fish for both summer and winter recreational fishing.  The beach area will include over 100,000 sqft of sandy play area, a boardwalk, lounge chairs, volleyball net, and umbrellas.  The park at the beach club will include a playground, an open grass area, picnic tables, BBQ areas, gazebos, benches, tennis courts, and parking.  Winter use will include separate skating and hockey areas maintained with a Zamboni.  Temporary lights will be installed on the ice surface during the season.    

The Beach Club will be approximately 7,500 sqft and include change rooms, washrooms, skate change area, an equipment rental space, concession stand, office space for the management team, storage areas, a kitchen, and a large dividable open space for programming, rental and events.  The Beach Club will offer a variety of free community events/programs and paid programs for children and adults of every age. Some examples: yoga, karate, dance, arts & crafts classes, painting classes, summer camps, swim lessons, hockey tournaments, fishing derbies, movies in the park, and beach parties.  Facility rentals will be easy and convenient for residents that wish to host events ranging from weddings, birthday parties, and meetings.  

Are there any fish in the lake?

The lake will be stocked with fish for both summer and winter recreational fishing. 

Will there be a restaurant in the beach club?

There are plans for a concession space, but no immediate plans for a restaurant.

The Beach Club will be approximately 7,500 sqft and include change rooms, washrooms, skate change area, an equipment rental space, concession stand, office space for the management team, storage areas, a kitchen, and a large dividable open space for programming, rental and events.  

Can I rent items from the beach club?

The long-term plan is to have some equipment rental at the beach club.  We are working on the details and logistics  – stay tuned for updates.

Home Owners Association (HOA)

Will there be an HOA or Homeowner fees?

Fees have been set for 2020.

Fees will be determined annually by the Board of Directors and will depend on the annual operating budget. 

For more info Please contact: Triona Cosgrave tcosgrave@melcor.ca

What is an HOA and what does it cover?

The Jensen Lakes Homeowners Association (JLHOA) is a not-for–profit organization which will manage and maintain the Jensen Lakes community amenities and activities on behalf of the Jensen Lakes property owners.  The JLHOA provides the mechanism for maintenance of the private Jensen Lakes community amenities and to provide activities/programming.

Membership in the JLHOA is mandatory and is automatically applied with the purchase of a home in Jensen Lakes.  There will be associated yearly fees due from each property owner secured via an encumbrance registered on the title of each property.  The yearly fees will vary based on the level of lake access a resident enjoys (Standard, Private Lake Access Walkway & Lake Shore).

The JLHOA will initially be managed and administered by Melcor Developments.  Melcor has established a Committee of Resident Directors who will work closely with the Melcor Directors and represent their community. Elections are done at an Annual General Meeting and all property owners will be invited to attend and vote on various items including the election of the Resident Directors.  For detailed inquiries please contact: Triona Cosgrave, HOA Manager tcosgrave@melcor.ca
