Spring is a time for personal renewal and growth. As the hemisphere warms and nature springs back to life, we take inventory of our own lives and situations. For most, this means spring cleaning around the home, or discarding the old to make peace (and room) with the new. But sometimes, embracing the new means changing how you live and, more importantly, where you live.
Hampstead is a New Urbanist community in Montgomery, AL unlike other typical, urban-sprawl suburbs. At Hampstead, our residents enjoy everything the spring season has to offer thanks to ample green space, chances for self-inventory, and abundant support.
Sowing New Opportunities
As a planting season, spring provides us with a chance to sow the seeds of our own futures. For Hampstead residents, this has literal and figurative implications.
Starting with the literal, Hampstead Farm offers residents of all ages a chance to get their hands dirty, manage the soil, and invest in growth. Hampstead Farm enlists help across the community while providing an enriching experience unlike any other.
At Hampstead, a connection with the natural world is a core value of our community. That’s why over 30% of Hampstead’s total land area has been dedicated to the preservation of green spaces for the communal enjoyment of all residents.
Moving on to the figurative sowing of seeds, Hampstead’s own Athletic Club and adjoining Core Vibes Studio can help you learn the basics for your new, favorite form of self-care. From yoga to weight training, tennis to cycling, our residents enjoy constant support for their individual, self-improvement goals.
The crops planted during Hampstead’s spring months aren’t just for show. In fact, run by the Hampstead Institute, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, a certain percentage of the crops grown at Hampstead can go on to feed and share with community members.
Focused on community, education, and wellness initiatives, Hampstead Institute works with other community organizations, independent businesses, and nonprofits to promote healthier, sustainable food sources and wellness opportunities. Some of the same food our residents help grow ends up back on their own plate at the restaurants in Hampstead’s community center.
Our residents enjoy cocktails with locally-grown mint, eat fish with locally-grown peppers, and ultimately have the immense satisfaction of knowing that they contributed to their own plates and the plates of others.
Appreciating the Season
Spring offers no shortage of distinct, natural beauty, and at Hampstead, enjoying the blooming bushes and greening trees is as easy as opening your front door. On warmer spring weeks, residents flock to Hampstead’s two community pools.
The Lido Pool is the largest neighborhood pool in Montgomery, AL, while the Pool on Long Acre provides a relaxed, tranquil atmosphere for reading, soaking up the sun, or perfecting the art of doing nothing much at all.
Like the green growing things of the world, our relationship with water similarly improves in the spring months. There’s no better place in all of Hampstead to witness the beauty of spring than in the reflections lining the 23-acre Hampstead Lake. Available for boating, catch-and-release fishing, or a simple stroll and picnic, Hampstead Lake perfectly captures our community commitment to sustainability and self-reflection.
Enjoying spring at Hampstead is as easy as hitting one of our numerous sidewalks and strolling for miles without ever leaving your own neighborhood.
