If you’re in the process of house hunting and perusing new homes in San Marcos, you’ve probably seen the term “master-planned community.” How do these types of communities differ from your traditional neighborhoods? For one, they offer abundant amenities with the goal of bringing like-minded neighbors together in a cohesive environment!
Typical master-planned communities may have a community clubhouse and pool, maybe even a park. But TRACE in San Marcos is proud to offer a greater number of unique amenities including educational and commercial facilities located within our development.
If you want to see an example of a master-planned community, check out TRACE in San Marcos. Here’s what we offer and what you’ll love about living in a true master-planned community.
With six parks inside our development, you can go on any kind of adventure. Bike, walk, run, or wander among the native grasses and wildflowers. Residents will enjoy all that the Texas sun and nature have to provide with the private amenity center’s resort-style pool and splash pad. Athletes can practice their skills on the sports fields or sand volleyball court.
Celebrate a special occasion or just spend time with family in the covered pavilions and picnic areas with tables. Kids will relish the playscapes and wide-open spaces.
A new San Marcos Consolidated Independent School District elementary school in TRACE will open the fall of 2019. Not only will students in the TRACE community have a short trip to school, but parents will also be at ease knowing their children aren’t far from home.
