With the holidays upon us we would like to remind you that fireworks are NOT allowed on the bayous. It is posted on the signs leading to our trails. Unfortunately some residents disobey this rule hence the reminder. We are aware they are allowed in Harris County but the bayous are off bounds. Please abide by this simple rule. If you are aware of someone using fireworks on the bayous, you can contact the non-emergency number for the Sheriff’s office. Please be aware though that they are very busy during the holidays and might not be able to respond in a timely manner. Thank you for your cooperation.
We are pleased to announce the trail repairs behind the new construction of the Stonecreek facility (where the racquet club was previously) have been completed.
Also, Harris County has finished the sidewalk and trail repairs near Lowery Elementary.
We thank you for your patience and hope you will enjoy having the uninterrupted trail system again. With cooler weather soon, it will be the perfect time to explore our community and enjoy the outdoors!
It has been brought to our attention that a resident was using fireworks on the bayou this past July Fourth. This is illegal as posted on the signs leading to the trails. Please be considerate and obey the rules established for our trail network.
The Stonecreek project bordering the trail network may have disrupted the pattern you have been accustomed to walking/riding. We are working with our consultants to ensure they replace the panels to our standards and employ any safety measures for the overflow slab. We apologize for the inconvenience. The rainy weather has slowed down their progress but, hopefully, it will be completed soon.
We are in the process of doing a major trimming of all the trees along the bayous to facilitate maintenance and grass cutting. It will take approximately a week to a week and a half depending on the weather. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause.
The repairs to the trails have been completed. The contractors are presently working on filling in around the slabs and cleaning up any excess debris. We hope you are enjoying this beautiful weather while walking/riding on the trails throughout our neighborhood.
We have just received notification the repairs to trails will begin Saturday, March 20th. It will be done in five phases. Each phase will be completed before moving on to the next phase. Hopefully this will limit the need to completely redo your usual route. Barring any unforeseen delays, the concrete work will be completed by mid-May. The target completion date for the total project is sometime in early June. If you would like to follow the progress of this project, below is a map of the areas effected with the different phases marked.
Parts of the trail will be blocked off where the repairs are taking place. Please be considerate and avoid the areas that are blocked off. Also, it is a definite safety issue. They will try and complete the project as quickly as possible. Your cooperation will be very much appreciated. We are very enthused to see how many residents are utilizing our trail system. Our goal is to maintain them to the utmost, to ensure your safety and enjoyment.
