Why Bridgeland

Since opening in 2006, Bridgeland has created a reputation for itself as the leading master planned community in northwest Houston. The development’s thoughtful approaches to conservation, recreation and transportation, known as the ‘Bridgeland Differences,’ have been recognized and honored by well-respected organizations like the National Association of Home Builders, the Texas Association of Builders and the Greater Houston Builders Association.

Open Space

Before development began, the original land planners conducted an extensive environmental study to find how best to protect, preserve and restore the natural environment within Bridgeland’s boundaries. As a result, developers chose to devote 3,000 acres to open space, providing a place for both residents and wildlife to thrive for generations to come.

60 Miles of Trail

Bridgeland offers a hierarchy of trails, border-to-border, to provide connectivity for pedestrian and bicycle traffic to various villages, village centers and activity centers. Exercise trails with fitness stations are available throughout the development, as are nature trails along waterways and creeks, to provide scenic views and expand recreational opportunities.

900 Acres of Lakes

More than 900 acres of lakes and waterways are planned, providing ample opportunities for outdoor activities and quiet respite. The first phase of development alone offers more than 400 acres of lakes that are stocked for catch-and-release fishing. Into bird-watching? More than 140 species of migratory birds can be found feeding or gliding across the lakes.

Recreation Equipment

Recreation equipment is offered so families can enjoy the great outdoors and embrace Bridgeland’s ample amenities. From kayaks and canoes to bicycles, volleyball equipment and fishing poles — residents will find it all! We even provide bait so you can reel in the big one, but getting the fish off the hook is up to you!

Activity Complexes

Bridgeland’s 6,000 square-foot Lakeland Activity Center offers something for every member of the family. The center’s swimming complex boasts two 30-foot tower slides, as well as a junior Olympic-size pool.  In addition, the site serves as a hub for community events, including daily exercise classes, weekly neighborhood meetings and gatherings, as well as camps and workshops for the youth of the community. The center also offers an array of multi-use spaces, such as a great room with kitchen facilities, a fitness center and meeting rooms.

Three other recreational facilities will be built, one for each village, offering swimming pools for all ages, ball fields, tennis courts and other conveniences.

Future Town Center

Bridgeland has developed a plan for a bustling Town Center that may include hospitals, schools, future employment, entertainment and a variety of shopping and dining choices. The Town Center will be adjacent to the Grand Parkway and will be the hub of activity for the community.

Self-Sustaining Irrigation

Bridgeland is the first community in Houston to embrace “purple pipe” from the onset of development. This system uses recycled water from community lakes to irrigate all common areas, saving a significant amount of water and helping the community to run more cost effectively.
