Current District Projects

Spring Branch Trail Phase 1

Through a contract with the Houston Parks Board, the Management District began constructing the Spring Branch Trail which was the subject of the 2020 Spring Branch Trail Study. Phase 1 of the Trail has been constructed on the Centerpoint Easement from Wirt Rd to Blalock Rd. Phase 2 is currently under design and will begin where the existing trail at Emnora ends, continuing west to Brittmoore. This phase will include some trail constructed along easements and some on-street bike lanes with cyclist safety being a top priority.

  • This project is segment 5 of the overall Spring Branch Trail project.
  • Extents of the project are from Blalock to Wirt Road.
  • The project will provide a 10’ concrete trail with safe street crossings and convenient neighborhood connections.
  • Schools that will have convenient trail access include Buffalo Creek Elementary, Edgewood Elementary and Landrum Middle School.
  • The project will start construction in early 2020.
Phase 1 Now Open

Spring Branch Trail Study 2020

  • This is a multi-year, regional trail project whose objective is to construct a concrete trail connection between the existing Addicks Reservoir Bike Trail to the west and the White Oak Bayou Greenway to the east.
  • The project uses an existing CenterPoint easement as its primary alignment.
  • The trail connection in Spring Branch alone is more than 7-miles in length.
  • Numerous schools, parks and neighborhoods will have direct, convenient access to the Spring Branch Trail.
  • The project will also develop strategic, multi-modal connections to the wider Spring Branch community, and consider the Houston Bike Plan.
  • This is the first phase of implementing the Spring Branch Trail project.
  • Extents of the project are from Blalock Road to just west of Wirt Road.
  • The project will provide a 10’ concrete trail with safe street crossings and convenient neighborhood connections.
  • Schools that will have convenient trail access include Buffalo Creek Elementary, Edgewood Elementary and Landrum Middle School.
  • The project will start construction in late 2019/early 2020.

Haden Park Improvements

The Management District contracted with SWA to create a comprehensive design for the complete revitalization of Haden Park, an existing 13-acre park located at the northeast corner of Long Point and Witte Road. The project will provide major improvements, especially to the undeveloped southern portion of the park along Long Point which is proposed as a “community” park. The park will be improved in phases and includes a small and large dog park, event lawn and stage, off-street parking, restrooms, a community garden, tennis courts, and other amenities. Fundraising options for Phase 1 are currently in discussion.
