When a pipeline easement runs through the development, what do you do? Bridgeland’s developer faced this very question. In the spirit of utilizing land for maximum potential, Howard Hughes Corporation has taken a large parcel of land marked as a pipeline easement and through creative planning, invented a new way for residents to utilize the outdoor space.
Bridgeland is proud to introduce Parkland Common. A mile-long linear trail system that will connect residents to the educational village at the north end of Parkland Village. The easement occupies a stretch of land extending from Tuckerton Rd. to Mason Rd., providing safe passage for residents as they traverse Parkland Village.
Believing that masterful design can shape how people live and elevate the everyday, this tract of land is currently being transformed into a social, public space. North and southbound walking paths within Parkland will weave their way into Parkland Common as it winds through the village. It will give parents and children the ability to safely walk to and from Bridgeland’s highly acclaimed schools with friends and neighbors. The 12-foot wide, treelined path will intersect only two streets making the journey to and from the educational village as safe as possible.
