If you've even spent any time in a home on or near a lake, you can appreciate the beauty and tranquilty that such a setting offers. It is so fun to watch the seasons change around a lake. The fall leaves, the gentle snowfall, the spring rains all seem a little more wonderful near the lake.
Barry Harbor in Kansas City North is a subdivision built around a private lake. Here is some information from the Barry Harbor Homeowner's Association website.
An inviting, friendly neighborhood describes the northland community of Barry Harbor-Hunter’s Ridge.
This established subdivision is conveniently located in Platte County, south of Barry Road at N. Marston Ave in close proximity to major highways, great health facilities, quality schools, variety shopping, and fine dining.
The original subdivision of Barry Harbor was established in July of 1979 along the southern shoreline of a small private lake. The lakeside picnic play area and walking path that now surrounds the lake give residents the opportunity to greet and gather with their neighbors.
In the mid-1990s, Hunter’s Ridge was developed south of Barry Harbor. New homes were also constructed along the north shore of the Barry Harbor lake. These combined adjacent communities function under one set of Covenants and Declarations that address the policies for 210 residential homes.
Barry Harbor-Hunter’s Ridge is governed by a board of seven elected members who strive to serve the communities needs and oversee the established policies. The board meets periodically and hosts open neighborhood meetings 2-3 times per year. Resident involvement is encouraged on several committees that address architectural considerations, communications, grounds, and neighbor relations.
Each year the community is invited to participate in a neighborhood garage sale, family picnic, and golf tournament. Groups of neighbors often gather informally throughout the year for picnics, dinners, and fun get-togethers. Neighbors also volunteer to enhance the beauty of our subdivision through regular cleanup of community areas and annual tree trimming.
This year Northland Neighborhoods, Inc. assisted our tree trimming by supplying necessary tools and supplies while the KCMO Parks and Recreation Department provided the expertise.
Barry Harbor-Hunter’s Ridge is a wonderful community in which to rear children, form rewarding friendships, and enjoy a relaxing environment amid the numerous amenities that the Northland has to offer.
