At its grand opening, Lincoln Prairie by Del Webb will debut six model homes available to tour. The community will also feature a 16,000 sq. ft. clubhouse with world-class amenities, including both indoor and outdoor pools, courts for tennis, bocce and pickleball, a fitness center, billiards room, and social rooms. A full-time Lifestyle Director will be on-site to develop and manage a robust calendar of activities and events to help residents live their lives to the fullest.

We are excited and energized to welcome Lincoln Prairie to Aurora,” said Aurora Mayor Richard C. Irvin. “Our collaboration with Del Webb has produced an ideal plan for a standard-setting, state-of-the-art adult community. Lincoln Prairie will help to brighten the City of Lights by enhancing the quality of life for its residents, their families, and our entire city. It will certainly be the benchmark for others to emulate.”
