Seven Meadows is another of the more established master-planned communities in Katy, Texas and Fort Bend County. Seven Meadows is a 1,050-acre Newland development in Katy, Texas, west of Houston. Seven Meadows is designed around the Meadowbrook Farms Golf Course, an 18-hole Greg Norman signature golf course. The course is not owned by Newland Communities Development which developed this community. Seven Meadows is located just west of the Grand Parkway in Katy, south of I10 and just north of the Westpark Tollway. This makes it a great option for the commuters into Houston as well as the Energy Corridor. The Seven Meadows community, as mentioned above, offers the Greg Norman designed Golf Course (18-hole daily-fee course) called Meadowbrook Farms Golf Course. It also has a 6 acre community recreation center, parks and greenbelts, pools, and much more.
Central Park Recreation Complex is the developments main fun center, containing a water park, fitness center, picnic areas, a theatre complex, tennis courts and a whole myriad of other recreational activities. A junior Olympic swimming pool can be found in the sister complex, the Cross Meadow Recreation Center, along with a children’s play area.
The parkland that comprises the green areas of this Katy home development are uniquely landscaped and contain many fascinating features, such as the exquisitely crafted bridges, a human sundial and water lily park. There are many miles of hiking trails to explore; residents with outdoor tendencies will not be disappointed with the options available to them.
The luxury and functionality provided at Seven Meadows is underpinned by a sensible approach to environmental issues. The idea of sustainability was high on the list of requirements at initial design time. Great efforts were taken to ensure environmental impact is kept to a minimum. Such rudimentary considerations as using only organic fertilizer make a great ecological impact. The development also incorporates a local hazardous waste recycling program, allowing residents a safe avenue for disposing of harmful wastes, and to enable recycling of more common waste items such as paper and plastic.
When looking at the overall concept behind Seven Meadows, it is hard to imagine how any team of developers could create a housing community which could achieve the heady goals, set by the original design committee. In many ways, Seven Meadows is two developments in one package. On the one hand, we have the functional, modern and well facilitated life style features. Whether living, working or playing, the Seven Meadows home development has everything a person or family could require for a comfortable life. On the other hand, we have the beautiful landscape, the aesthetically pleasing surroundings and the incredible amount of recreational facilities, which make Seven Meadows seem like a holiday resort.
