It takes more than a house to make a home, and more than homes to make a neighborhood. With 3,000 acres devoted to open space and recreation, Bridgeland’s amenities help foster an enhanced lifestyle where community and nature thrive. Throughout the development, green space can be found no more than a quarter mile from each homesite, allowing residents to easily access parks and open play areas.

Eventually, community members will be able to take in the beauty of Bridgeland’s sprawling lakes and green space via 250 miles of interconnecting, wandering trails. The six-mile path that currently exists contains wildlife observation areas with educational signage and fitness stations that feature unique workout equipment.

Fishing and boating enthusiasts will feel right at home among Bridgeland’s 900 acres of lakes and waterways. In 2007, more than 238,000 catfish, bass and feeder fish were put into the lakes for catch-and-release fishing, so whether residents are casting from a pier on Lake Bridgeland or a non-motorized boat on Cypress Lake, it’s possible to land the big one! To further encourage use of the lakes, Bridgeland offers residents complimentary use of recreational equipment like kayaks, canoes and paddle boats.

During Texas summers, Lakeland Activity Center offers much-needed relief from the heat with its spray park, junior Olympic-size pool and two 30-foot tower slides. Exercise classes, community events and seasonal workshops are also hosted in this 6,000-sqaure-foot space, where a full-time activities director works on-site to maintain a bustling social calendar.

With all of these amenities at your fingertips, you’ll find that there’s always time to play in Bridgeland.
