Parkland Village was first announced last summer and excitement about the new addition has led to nearly 100 home sales. The official grand opening will take place on March 24 and April 7 and will include a model home tour, live music, food trucks, goat yoga, and more. The original announcement included details about the community’s first lazy river, activity center with meeting space and fitness center, serenity pool, ample park space, and interconnecting hike and bike trails.
A few new elements have recently been finalized that are certain to make Parkland Village northwest Houston’s favorite place to call home.
This one-of-a-kind play structure was custom designed and was inspired by Parkland Village’s icon: a dragonfly. The icon will be used on signage and monuments throughout the community as well as this whimsical sculpture to encourage active and imaginative play at the village park. The dragonfly’s wings are perfect for climbing; his tail dips down, simulating a dragonfly at rest on a shallow pond, providing a climbing route to the top of the body. Wooden posts and rope climbers are integrated with the sculpture, forming reeds and bullrushes illustrating the dragonfly’s habitat.
Beach entry pool at the lazy river
The beach entry pool offers fun for all ages. Centrally located in the pool is a kids’ zone with a treehouse play structure and swing over the water. Nearby is a sunning shelf with lounge chairs offering parents a place to relax while they watch their children enjoy their surroundings. For older kids, there is a section with deeper water and a rope swing. In the lazy river, there is a seating node so you can stop by and relax while visiting with neighbors, or recline, perhaps, in one of the shaded hammocks that beckon on the island in the lazy river. Nearby are two small pavilions with gas grills, a sink, some counter space, and seating area so you can enjoy a day by the pool and grill your favorites while you’re there.
Walkway/promenade at Parkland Activity Center
The Parkland Activity Center will have a well-appointed fitness center, flex rooms, and event space that can seat up to 150 people for private functions. A large, bi-fold door found on the lake side of the event space can beopened to include the patio and lawn area, allowing an additional outdoor experience and increasing the event seating space to accommodate an additional 100+ seats. The design of the building was inspired by Prairie School Architecture, a nod to Frank Lloyd Wright’s work with an open floor plan and modern appeal. You will see a beautiful example of this in the walkway between the buildings at the Activity Center. The walkway is covered with a canopy that contains a stained glass element with a pattern inspired by this period of unique style and architecture. The sun will cast the colorful pattern onto the walkway, one of several features in Bridgeland not found anywhere in northwest Houston.
Design details like this canopy illustrates Bridgeland’s commitment to creating special places for our residents to have unique experiences and enjoy the lifestyle that is being created.
