Bridgeland Family Walk Trails

Cypress Creek Nature Trail

Welcome to the wild side! The Cypress Creek Nature Trail is a 1,000-acre haven for more than 300 species of resident and migratory birds, an unbridled zoo of mammals, reptiles and amphibians, as well as native vegetation. The trail is 2.5 miles long and will be six miles upon completion, including The Prairie Trail, The Lake Trail, and The Wood Trail. Pathways and sidewalks lead to the main trail. Secondary trails and mountain bike trails weave through densely wooded areas. Along the way, there are wildlife observation areas and points of interest with benches and educational signage describing the history of the area and the indigenous plants and animals.

Access the trailhead, featuring benches and a map of the trail system, at Oak Meadow Park, a 30-acre wooded setting with picnic areas and an 18-hole disc golf course tucked between Cypress Lake and Cypress Creek. While at Oak Meadow Park, residents can enjoy a stocked lake and covered pavilion with complimentary recreation equipment and convenient restrooms. A map, helpful for exploring the trail’s historic landscape, is available in the Welcome Center.

Community Lakes Trails

Each community built within Bridgeland will contain sidewalk trails winding around the lakes and green space. Trails are available throughout all of the neighborhoods in both Lakeland Village and Parkland Village.

The trail systems help to connect communities and neighborhoods to amenities, schools and churches, Lakeland Activity Center, Dragonfly Park, Lakeland Village Center, and other trail systems, such as House-Hahl Trail and the Cypress Creek Nature Trail.

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 signs to enhance a nature-based workout.

The second phase of House-Hahl Trail stretches for another mile and features approximately 1,000 trees planted to enhance the wooded natural setting. Upon completion, House Hahl Trail will traverse the entire community and offer an ideal location for running, biking and leisure strolls.

Bridgeland Kinetic Park

Parkland Common

This mile-long, 12-foot-wide linear park and trail system through Parkland Village will offer safe passage for families walking to and from Wells Elementary School, Bridgeland High School, and the future Cy-Fair ISD middle school. In addition, it will offer five circuit training fitness stations for residents looking to supplement their workout regimen. Two parks along Parkland Common will provide unique places for kids and families to play before and after school. At Kinetic Park – the park closest to the schools, little ones can burn off some excess energy on a vibrant vertical climbing structure surrounded by lots of room to roam. At Monarch Park, featuring a colorful butterfly garden and habitat, artistic shade structure and a Viking Swing, families and fitness buffs can mix, mingle and revive.
