Parkland Square to bring 'traditional neighborhood design' to Bridgeland this fall

Parkland Square will open in Bridgeland's Parkland Village in fall 2019.

Parkland Square will open in Bridgeland's Parkland Village in fall 2019.

Officials with the Bridgeland master-planned community announced June 5 plans to open Parkland Square later this year within the Parkland Village neighborhood in Cypress.

Parkland Square will be developed according to "traditional neighborhood design" standards, incorporating residential, commercial and educational elements within a walkable community, according to a June 5 press release. The first model homes are expected to open this fall, and a grand opening could take place in late 2019 or early 2020, officials said.

The neighborhood will feature 178 homes on lots ranging from 35 feet to 60 feet. Homes will be built using modern farmhouse and prairie architectural designs.

The neighborhood design will also make use of outdoor public spaces, including a dog park, a playground, a central park area called Celebration Park and a pavilion with an outdoor living area for neighborhood gatherings, according to the release. When Parkland Village was announced in 2018, Bridgeland officials said the concept for the neighborhood was based on the idea of living within a park and that no home would be farther than a quarter-mile from a park.

Parkland Square will also be the first neighborhood in Bridgeland to use rain gardens—a design feature intended to filter rainwater before it enters storm drains or the neighborhood's lake system. The community will feature 11 rain gardens in all.

"Rain garden plants can use this filtered water for nutrients, saving water by limiting the need for more irrigation," according to the release. "Ultimately, the implementation of rain gardens will allow for educational benefits to area students through regular sampling of treated and untreated water—showing how ecosystems can benefit from sustainable practices."

Price ranges and builder information have not yet been announced.
