Imagine a remote urban oasis in the midst of a thriving town. This secluded get-a-way features a relaxing lazy river, a pool, scenic landscaping and more. Nope … we’re not writing about a remote island or a fancy hotel pool … this perfectly describes the planned pool facility slated for The New Town at St. Charles.

The City of St. Charles recently approved the Shire Lane pool site and design near Phase II in New Town. Weather permitting, the pool facilities will open summer 2007. The facility is primarily for the enjoyment of New Town residents and their guests.

The Shire Lane Pool has already been referred to by many as the nicest residential development pool facilities in the entire state of Missouri! The pool site was designed by Corban & Goode, a world-renowned landscape architectural firm out of Toronto, Ontario in Canada. In fact, the firm is a consultant for Duany Plater-Zyberk & Company, a largely recognized firm who has designed over 250 new urbanism communities throughout the world. Westport Pools will be building the facility.

The Shire Lane Pool will not only include a winding lazy river, a lap pool, a leisure pool, a children’s area and splash pad and a bathhouse but it also will have many elegant design features including scenic waterfall, a sunbathing slope and an elevated terrace looking out over the entire facility. The pool site is surrounded by professional landscaping.

More detailed information will be available in the near future in upcoming issues of the New Town Courier or at
