A Community and Club Growing Younger

Cordillera Ranch is a Great Place to Raise Families

By Debbie Pepper

While Texas continues to enjoy continued growth from all over the country, Cordillera Ranch is setting the bar for not only continued growth but a positive trend of younger families with children calling Cordillera Ranch home!  The Texas economy, the developing yet “small town atmosphere” of Boerne, our top-rated Boerne schools and the continual draw of tranquil living in the Texas Hill Country are attracting families pursuing a better quality of life. Not to be forgotten, empty nesters and early retirees are also seeking an active lifestyle in an engaging and thriving community that offers so much for young families and an equally important drawing card to attract their grown children and grandchildren to visit. There truly is something for everyone and our diverse demographics exemplifies that “life really is better out here!”

 With miles of nature trails, river frontage, equestrian facilities and outfitter opportunities, along with extensive summer camps offering a menu of outdoor-life activities as well as golf, tennis and fitness, it is no wonder the Club is experiencing a 20% growth overall for young families with children in the past four years. We are now a community of over 900 homes and a safe haven for the approximate 350 school-aged children living and enjoy life on the Ranch.

Ginny and Daniel Quinn’s boys, Whitt and Guy, have made as many friends as mom and dad through a variety of activities for everyone in their family to enjoy. Ginny says, “Moving to 

Cordillera Ranch and joining The Clubs of Cordillera Ranch was one of the best decisions we could have made for our family. We have met so many families and have made genuine, lifelong friendships. One of our favorite things to do is meet our friends at the Club on Friday nights for live music on the patio, and the kids can’t wait to go see their friends at Kids Camp. Here, every weekend feels like a vacation, whether we are kayaking down the river, fishing at Swede Creek or taking the horses for a ride, we are refreshed for the week to come. Last but not least, we would not have made it through the summer without the Club — the kids absolutely loved all of the summer camps and playing at the pool, and as their parents, we loved that it wore them out! Thank you to everyone at The Clubs of Cordillera Ranch for everything you do and for letting us LOVE where we live!”

For Brooklynn and Michael Willy, finding the perfect environment for their boys, Coulter and Caden, and older daughter Kaela, to enjoy their childhood was their top priority. “After several years of researching where we wanted our boys to grow up, we finally moved into Cordillera Ranch at the end of February 2020. Unbeknownst to us, and thanks to COVID, we were able to really get settled in! We have enjoyed the 

facilities, the summer camps, and The Clubs of Cordillera Ranch staff have gone above and beyond. We are looking forward to meeting and making new friends in the neighborhood,” says Brooklynn.

Fish Stocking in Swede Creek Lake

Swede Creek Lake is an outstanding resource and amenity at Cordillera Ranch, and during my 16 years on the Ranch, we have watched the fish populations remain fairly healthy. In 2015, we did a fish survey in Swede Creek Lake to get an estimate of the health and numbers of fish and that report found a very healthy population of bass and several species of sunfish. Over the years, we have caught the following species out of Swede Creek Lake: largemouth or black bass, Guadalupe or spotted bass, rock bass, red breast sun fish, long ear sunfish, green sunfish, bluegill, channel catfish, striped bass and a few turtle species that include the red-ear slider, Texas river cooter and softshell turtle. We have also seen nutra rat and beaver using the lake as home.
