Man-made lagoon planned for St. Johns County will be largest in Florida, CEO says

A crystal-clear, 14-acre lagoon will soon be built in the Twin Creeks development in St. Johns County.

Uri Man, the CEO of Crystal lagoons in the U.S., says this lagoon will be the largest in Florida and will bring a beach-like area to those who would have been landlocked in their community.

Man says this lagoon will set Twin Creeks apart from other housing developments in the area — and will serve as a catch basin for rain too.

St. Johns County resident Patty Conklin says she's seen the area grow and thinks the lagoon will bring more people to the area.
"I think if they can bring something huge like that, it would bring more tourists," Conklin said.

Man says the lagoons usually have a depth of 8-10 feet and give people the chance to swim and take part in water sports.

The groundbreaking will be March 23. Developers told Action News Jax they will be there to give out more details and pictures of what’s to come.
