2016 Easter Fun

The annual Lochmere Easter Egg Hunt sponsored by the Lochmere HOA with the assistance of Teen Core of Cary will be held on Sunday, March 25, 2018, from 3:00 to 5:00 PM at the Lochwood upper parking lot (502 Lochmere Drive, by the office). This year's hunt is scheduled a little early since many will be away for Spring Break close to Easter.

This event is open to all Lochmere residents. Bring the kids (grandchildren are invited) with their baskets to find some colorful eggs. There will be two groups - 0-5 years old and 6-10 years old.

This year the Easter Bunny will be once again be hiding empty eggs. Each child will collect 12 eggs and bring them to the Easter Bunny and his helpers. In turn they will receive a goody bag.

Make sure to arrive a few minutes early since last year the hundreds of eggs were snatched up almost instantly. We will also have some fun activities for the children after they find their eggs.

We have it on good authority that the Easter Bunny is going to make a special appearance so don't forget your cameras!

Please RSVP by Thursday, March 22, HERE.

If you would like to help in setting up or cleaning up, we can never have enough volunteers. Please sign up when you RSVP.

All questions should be directed to Lochmere's Program Manager, Gail Lewis (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).


So who brought temperatures in the 60's at 9:30AM on Friday, December 11, at the Lochwood Tennis courts.  It must have been Santa!!!!

A fun time was had at the Round Robin with the ladies eyeing some pretty impressive presents.  After a morning of mixing it up on the courts, everyone indulged in the usual fabulous food.  Does Lochmere not have t12 11 15 ladies tennis social

September 22, 2015 Board Minutes

021Lochmere residents can enjoy any of our neighborhood lakes, including Lake Lochmere (the big lake), Lake Lomond (the lake with the walking trail) and Highlands Lake (in the Highlands neighborhood).  

The Lochmere HOA owns and is responsible for the upkeep of the lakes. The trails and adjacent area for Lake Lomond is owned by the HOA. Most of the property surrounding Lake Lochmere is privately owned other than the dock and boat ramp area. At Highlands Lake, the area on the south side of the lake is privately owned to the waters edge by Lochmere Highlands homeowners. 

Here's some information to help keep our lakes healthy, while enjoying them to their fullest!

  1. There is no swimming in any of our lakes.
  2. Fishing is allowed, but please respect the privacy of private property around Lake Lochmere and Highlands Lake.  Panfish may be kept for the table, but bass are "catch and release" only.  Please be responsible and remove any fishing line, hooks, and equipment when you leave.  Fishing line and hooks are dangerous for all wildlife.
  3. Please don't feed the geese, swans or ducks.  We'd like to discourage the geese from remaining on our lakes.  Canadian Geese are an endangered migrating species and annually return to where they were born or fed during the prior season.  The geese are messy and can leave considerable droppings that interfere with the beauty of the area, potentially transmit disease, and can cause environmental damage to the lakes.  The swans have been located on the lakes to discourage the geese, who are natural enemies of the swans.
  4. Watercraft (on Lake Lochmere only) must display a Lochmere boating permit.  You need two stickers per boat (one on each side of the bow) and the cost is $5 per watercraft.   The stickers are available for purchase at the Lochmere Main Office (502 Lochmere Drive)  during regular business hours Monday through Friday.    Fees should be paid by a check payable Lochmere Homeowner's Association.
  5. Enjoy the 1.1 mile loop around Lake Lomond.  Walking, jogging and strollers are great, but please no bikes, scooters skate boards, or skates.
  6. The lakes and trails are for the enjoyment of Lochmere residents only.  Trespassers may be reported to the Cary police.  

    Residents of the Audubon Parc Apartments (adjacent to Lake Lomond) are permitted to use the Lake Lomond trail.

  7. Abide by all posted signage to maintain the beauty and safety of our facilities. 
  8. Please keep your dog leashed at all times during visits to the lakes and lake trail and clean up after your pet.
  9. Swimming, kayaking, and canoeing is not allowed in any of the lake spillways or downstream tributaries.

Please see the attachment below for a complete list of rules and regulations regarding boating and lake use.
