Bommer Canyon

Bommer Canyon Construction Update

Construction continues at Bommer Canyon Cattle Camp, and we have been working hard since March to renovate this favorite community spot with new facilities that maintain the area’s historic, rustic charm. Sewer lines are currently being improved, and development of new buildings is planned to kick off in June. In September, final touches on the landscaping and irrigation will begin, and construction is expected to be complete by the end of 2021 or beginning of 2022. Public reservations remain closed but will open in August 2021 for 2022 dates. We look forward to when the community can visit Cattle Camp and enjoy its new structures, restrooms, and pathways.

50th Anniversary

Fun Fact for 50 Years of Incorporation 

Woodbridge Lake

The Woodbridge neighborhood, which opened in 1976, was designed to contain numerous recreational facilities, ensuring all residents live within a five-minute walk of a park, pool, or lake. Many activities revolve around the two man-made lakes in the center of the village, each with its own swimming lagoon. Today these lagoons still provide ample space for residents to cool off on a hot summer day. If you find yourself choosing to swim at the North lake, it may be because it’s slightly warmer! When construction crews were drilling for water in North Lake they struck a natural hot spring, resulting in a difference in temperature in the two lakes.
