Three times around the High Cliff Park lagoon and you've walked or ridden a mile. When the area was blasted decades ago to build the development, natural limestone platforms were left in the lagoon waters. You can literally walk out to the middle. Steep drop-offs surround the platforms. The water flows through it from Green Bay waters therefore mimics Bay water depths just like the aqua lane. Fish and turtles make it their home. An original windmill pump still stands. There is a community pier. It is absolutely perfect for floating with a beer in hand. In winter it freezes over and looks like a picture from Currier and Ives. The exclusive beautiful house on the point does not have direct access -- you have to drive down Bay View Drive to High Cliff Park Road -- then cross the bridge over the aqua lane to reach the lagoon for swimming and fishing. Homes on the island itself front the lagoon and homeowners have been known to bring in sand to create a small private "beach." The absolute finest feature of the whole development is protected waters for docking right in your back yard...and instant access to Green Bay waters. And, of course, Idlewild Golf Course and the Cherryland Airport are two minutes away. Years ago the homeowners' association had to take the High Cliff Park sign off the limestone structure at the corner of County Road M because too many tourists would turn in to explore what was then one of the most exclusive and highly sought after areas in the county. It will come back to that stature one day because no more aqua lanes are allowed. Been vacationing there for 3 decades...family has a place on the island now for sale.
