Lagoon City was the brainchild of Hungarian-born Andrew Zsolt. In 1962 Zsolt first encountered the 1,600-acre shoreline property, much of it swampland, and envisioned a resort town on a protected harbour, similar to many he had enjoyed as a young man in Hungary. The following year he formed Lagoon City Developments Ltd. and set about to make his vision a reality, excavatingmore than 15 kilometres of waterways through the swamp and eventually incorporating full city services.
Each home has boat mooring on the shallow channels that are ideal for fisherman, who can cast a line and pull in bass, perch, sunfish, catfish and pickerel.
A community for all seasons, it offers summertime access to a private beach with over 5000 feet of shoreline and Lagoon City Marina with 300 slips for pleasure craft. In winter, Lagoon City becomes a frozen resource for cross-country skiing, ice skating and snowmobiling.
