Bridgeland
A satisfying life is one that is in balance—family, career, community and personal needs all snugly in place. Balance is Bridgeland’s priority, too. As developers, Bridgeland works to build an intricate network of homes, amenities, social opportunities, schools, employment and retail, but also bridges residential life with the vast natural landscape in the Bridgeland community.

The 11,400-acre Bridgeland community is located within and along the eastern boundaries of the Katy Prairie, an environmental gem that has provided refuge and foraging areas for more than 300 species of resident and migratory birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians. Bridgeland strives to protect the valuable lands, including the historic Cypress Creek corridor, a significant creek system along Bridgeland’s northern boundaries.

Included in the development’s preservation efforts are thoughtful enhancements that allow residents to appreciate and enjoy nature. Cypress Creek Nature Trail rivals any found in a state park, winding through a canopy of trees and eventually stretching six miles. The trail’s second phase is in the planning stages, and the educational signage along the trail will be useful to teachers and students of Bridgeland’s first on-site elementary, under construction now near the trail.

Many of Bridgeland’s young residents experience the thrill of landing their first fish at one of the community’s catch-and-release lakes, which are also large enough for kayakers and sailors to hone their skills either with their own equipment or with complimentary use of boats and other items available to residents.

Bridgeland’s many parks—with park space located no more than a quarter mile from each home—also bring residents outside. Expansive Oak Meadow Park boasts a 10-acre disc golf course and is the site of many large-scale community events. Festival Park is a resident hub, hosting concerts, movies in the park and theatrical performances on its stage pavilion.

Another resident focal point is the Lakeland Activity Center, one of four resort-style complexes planned for Bridgeland. The facility has a 6,000-square-foot community center, a fitness center, two lighted tennis courts and two playgrounds. Residents of all ages enjoy the center’s resort pool, with two 30-foot tower slides, diving wells, water volleyball and a spray park. A second spray park recently opened on a three-acre site and offers several active play spaces and picnicking areas.

In all, Bridgeland is devoting 3,000 acres to green space and recreation, all nestled amid homes built by some of the nation’s leading builders. Home prices range from the $170,000s to more than $1 million, and buyers can select from traditional family homes, custom properties and Main Street–style designs in Bridgeland’s traditional neighborhood development of Lakeland Heights.

Besides homes, schools and amenities, Bridgeland’s master plan offers space for churches, the first of which opens this year, plus a strong retail and services component. Each of Bridgeland’s four villages will have a retail area for employment, shopping, restaurants and more. In addition, 900 acres have been set aside for a bustling Town Center that may include employment centers, hospitals, entertainment and additional shopping.

Press Release
Come on outside and play in more than 400 acres of parks. Bridgeland is building sports parks, nature parks, swim parks, memorial parks, spray parks and disc golf parks, to name just a few!

OAK MEADOW PARK
Serving as the trailhead for the Cypress Creek Nature Trail, Oak Meadow Park derives its name from the towering water oaks found in the area. The serene 30-acre park has multiple shaded picnic areas, a floating dock on stocked Cypress Lake for catch-and-release fishing, a covered pavilion with restrooms and an 18-hole disc golf course.

From the pavilion, residents can check out complimentary recreation equipment to enjoy the surrounding areas. Check out a canoe, kayak, giant checkers game, croquet, fishing equipment (including bait) and much more. Visit www.bridgelandlife.com to see more about life in Bridgeland.

DISC GOLF

Residents love one of Bridgeland’s most innovative and entertaining amenities—the community’s private 18-hole disc golf course, which is nestled between the banks of Cypress Lake and Cypress Creek in Oak Meadow Park. Designed by Disc Golf Consultants and spanning more than 10 acres, it is the first disc golf course in Northwest Houston and arguably the best in the Southwest. The layout of the course utilizes the lakes in the area, so watch out for the water. Your disc may be floating instead of flying on this challenging course!

SHORES PARK
This scenic four-acre park serves as the focal point of The Shores and features a large open play area appropriate for special resident events, such as a holiday tree lighting or a visit from the Easter Bunny. The park is perfect for flying your kite or even playing a game of tag! A paved walking trail wraps around the park and is well-landscaped with natural prairie grasses and flowers. The park also has a covered pavilion and has been the location for various large-scale resident events.

FESTIVAL PARK

Located in the community of Lakeland Heights, the three-acre Festival Park contains a covered pavilion used for concerts, movies in the park and other events. The pavilion offers restrooms and a seating area with fireplace that residents may use for a multitude of events. This gathering spot is the hub of activity for the Traditional Neighborhood Development—a pedestrian-friendly community with historic Houston architecture, rear-lane access for garages, ample public spaces to foster relationships and sense of community and soon a walkable downtown with small shops, restaurants, private school, medical office and a high-end multifamily neighborhood.

WATER HAVEN PARK
Bridgeland’s newest park, a three-acre site located in the community of Water Haven, is now open. The park offers several active play spaces, including a sprayground with a tall custom water tower spray structure and low-profile bubbling sculptures for a variety of age ranges. Anchoring the sprayground is a pavilion that offers picnic tables and proximity to barbecue grills. Children age 2 to 5 have a dedicated playground while older children can climb and slide in an adjacent play space. Near both playgrounds is a swing set area that caters to all ages. This is one of six parks planned for Water Haven.

COMMUNITY PARKS AND PLAYGROUNDS
Within the greenbelts and common areas that thread the communities, there will be smaller playgrounds or tot lots where neighborhood friends gather and play. Park pavilions, soccer fields and more will be available as Bridgeland continues to grow, offering residents practice fields and locations for outdoor parties. New residents will discover creative spaces, such as a rose garden, butterfly garden, Turtle Lane, Maze Park and Rabbit Run, just to name a few. With a neighborhood park no more than a quarter mile from every home, Bridgeland will exceed what most families who are searching for a home expect.
The trails in Bridgeland are designed to appeal to a wide variety of homeowners seeking a broad range of activities. The conceptual land plan will feature a hierarchy of trails, border to border, that provide physical links for pedestrian/bicycle traffic to various villages, village centers and activity centers. Exercise trails with fitness stations as well as nature trails along waterways and creeks, meander through the development to provide views of water fowl, aquatic plants/grasses and open up educational opportunities. Escape from your hectic day with a long, peaceful walk along any of these trails just steps from your front door.

CYPRESS CREEK TRAIL
The six-mile Cypress Creek Trail is set along the historic Cypress Creek Corridor, a 1,000-acre nature area and creek system bordering Bridgeland’s northern edge. The trail offers a mix of pathways, with sidewalks leading to the main trail, which features decomposed granite. A series of secondary trails composed of rustic wood chips weaves through more densely wooded areas.

Along the trail, residents find wildlife observation areas amid the trees and on Cypress Lake as well as points of interest with benches and educational signage pertaining to the history of the area and indigenous plants and animals. Hikers may glimpse some of the 140 species of birds already identified in the area. Plus, a floating dock has been installed and the other amenities along the trail’s first 2.5 miles are now complete. A one-mile mountain bike trail runs parallel to the nature trail and Cypress Creek, connecting with the main trail in several areas.

Residents can access the trailhead for Cypress Creek Trail at Oak Meadow Park, a 30-acre wooded setting that offers picnic areas and an 18-hole disc golf course nestled between the banks of Cypress Lake and Cypress Creek. Residents can enjoy a stocked lake and a covered pavilion with complimentary recreational equipment and convenient restrooms. The trailhead includes a seating area and a map of the trail system. Visit the Welcome Center to receive a helpful map that residents use as they explore this historic landscape.

CENTRAL CREEK TRAIL
The Central Creek Trail meanders along the main central thoroughfare in the Bridgeland community and caters to those looking for an afternoon power-walking session or a casual evening stroll along the lakes. It will be more urban in character and will be the primary linkage in the trail system. It will also link communities to the future Town Center.

LANGHAM CREEK TRAIL
This southernmost Langham Creek Trail will serve as a buffer to the surrounding natural environment. Over time, the trail will become more heavily wooded, similar to the Cypress Creek Trail where bird watchers can view many of the 140 species of birds that have touched down on the Bridgeland landscape.

HOUSE-HAHL TRAIL
This unique trail is named after the “old House and Hahl” road that stretches across the Bridgeland landscape. The mile-long first phase of this trail includes numerous exercise stations with individual signs to assist you and enhance your exercise outing. The asphalt trail is steps from your front door and is perfect for walking the dog, biking or jogging, and connects you to The Shores Lake Trail or First Bend Lake Trail. The second phase, now complete, has doubled the trail’s size and nearly 1,000 trees were planted to enhance its setting.

COMMUNITY LAKE TRAILS
Each community built within Bridgeland contains sidewalk trails winding around the lakes and green space. Existing trails can be found in The Shores, First Bend, The Cove, Lakeland Heights and Water Haven, and next on the horizon is the new community of Hidden Creek. The trail systems help to connect communities and neighborhoods to amenities, the Lakeland Activity Center and other trail systems, such as House-Hahl Trail and the Cypress Creek Nature Trail. Catch a glimpse of some of the 140 species of birds identified in Bridgeland by simply strolling along the lake trails.

Basking on the banks of more than 300 acres of lakes and meandering waterways in the first phase of development, residents of Bridgeland enjoy not only picturesque views of tranquil water from their home, but also spend their leisure time playing on the water. Upon completion, Bridgeland will offer more than 900 acres of lakes for residents to enjoy.

On warm summer days, residents can jump into canoes and kayaks on one of the many lakes and waterways throughout the community or take a ride around the activity center on paddle boats.

Parents can teach their children how to reel in “the big one” at the catch-and-release lakes around the property. The lakes were stocked in 2007 with nearly 300,000 fish including catfish, blue cat, brim and spotted bass.

Where other communities may offer trapezoidal drainage ditches and cement-lined detention ponds, Bridgeland has chosen to enhance the landscape by developing natural, sloping shore-lined lakes, landscaped lake trails and waterways.

Enter Bridgeland from Fry Road and you immediately see water to your left and right. You are not greeted by neighborhood entrances crowded with homes. Take a deep breath and drive the nearly three-mile lake view along North Bridgeland Lake Parkway and enjoy the serenity. Imagine unwinding on your drive home.

Bridgeland was designed to maximize water views from many home sites, not just a select few. Trails surround lakes and waterways so residents have an opportunity to enjoy their natural beauty. Visit Bridgeland and “Find Balance.”

LAKE BRIDGELAND
Lake Bridgeland is the first body of water to greet you as you enter the community of Bridgeland at Fry Road. From the North Bridgeland Lake Parkway bridge, visitors can glimpse some of the 140 species of birds identified on the Bridgeland property as they glide across the water. On calm days, the water is spectacularly reflective and showcases the magnificent architecture of the Bridgeland Welcome Center situated on the west bank of Lake Bridgeland.

A Grand Promenade wraps around Lakeland Activity Center and offers residents an opportunity to check out paddle boats or a canoe or even bring their fishing poles and step out on the floating dock for a little catch-and-release fishing. Residents can attend classes on fishing, nonmotorized boating and more water activities on Lake Bridgeland, all coordinated by a full-time Activities Director.

Visit the Bridgeland Welcome Center for the full experience!

CYPRESS LAKE
Guests will find Cypress Lake nestled along North Bridgeland Lake Parkway. An estimated two miles long Cypress Lake offers spectacular water views for new homeowners or those using Cypress Creek Nature Trail. With rolling banks and meandering shorelines, Cypress Lake is perfect for residents interested in kayaking, a canoe ride or some catch-and-release fishing. Residents can visit the pavilion to check out complimentary recreational equipment. In addition, Cypress Lake is located along the challenging Oak Meadow Park Disc Golf Course, considered one of the best courses in the Southwest.

Cypress Lake is an excellent example of the thoughtful design that has gone into planning the community of Bridgeland and features vast shore lines and open space. You won’t find homes crowded along the edge. It is not surrounded by concrete or adorned with mechanical fountains. Cypress Lake offers a natural shore and is home to flocks of colorful birds gliding gracefully across its waters. If you watch carefully in the early hours of the morning near Cypress Lake, you just may see the occasional deer that makes the surrounding area home.

WATER ACTIVITIES
Bridgeland’s many lakes are more than just something to admire—they are designed for active enjoyment. Residents can access the water easily, thanks to the complimentary kayaks, canoes, sailboats and paddle boats available. Plus, scenic docks and overlooks provide the perfect place to drop a line and enjoy catch-and-release fishing. To further encourage water play, Bridgeland’s full-time Activities Director holds kayaking classes, fishing contests and more throughout the year.
