I live in Grand Lakes and we were one of the first occupied homes in section1 back in 1999. There is a special feel or ambience associated with living this neighborhood. We love to walk all the trails that exist on the east side of highway 99. It is very easy to get from one section to another via the numerous trails. The area is friendly and the sights along the way are very appealing.
