The Common grounds create an idyllic setting to anchor the 267 homes that make up Cress Creek Commons. At its center are three lakes, Heatherton, Kammer and Mirror with each connected to the other in a series of underground channels, with shorelines surrounded by erosion limiting limestone rocks.
Abutting two of the lakes is the Bathe & Racquet Club with 2 tennis courts, a 25 meter pool, diving board and a toddlers wading pool. Tables, chairs, umbrellas and a tree shaded picnic area add to the functionality. Seasonal lifeguards are always on duty.
Forty year old deciduous and evergreen trees are spread throughout the spacious lawns that surround the lakes, a walking path meanders alongside Kammer & Heatherton and for the foot weary, the dreamer and the dog walkers there are park benches scattered about the lakesides.
