At Elyson, we take our outdoor space very seriously. Which is why we have multiple ways to spend the day outside—whether you want to have a picnic, play pickleball, or just hang with the pooch. Each of our parks has its own unique personality and things to do, so we suggest you try them all.
What does Elyson Commons have? The question might be what doesn’t it have? This 145-acre space is full of things to do. We’ve listed a few here, but to get the full picture, you can read more here. (Or get a bird’s eye view of the place.)
Where you might catch a concert, outdoor movie or community event — or simply expend a little energy running or playing on the wide open stretches of grass
Pure unleashed fun, with separate areas for dogs of different sizes, to keep furry friends safe
An easy 1.4 miles that meanders through meadows of wildflowers and other natural areas along Bear Creek
Grills and covered picnic tables provide the perfect lunch (or dinner) spot
A half-court basketball court, plus a multi-use field for soccer, football — or just throwing a frisbee around
Outdoor exercise stations to keep residents in peak shape
Yep, there’s a park within the park — the ultimate playground, complete with a parkour obstacle course, climbing nets, balancing ropes, play tower and more
Just down the road from our model home village, you’ll find Timber Grove Park. It’s the perfect spot for kids and adults alike, with large oak trees providing shade for the tables and chairs below, a suitable-for-just-about-any-activity open lawn. A playground (naturally), walking path, and covered pavilion with views of the lake.
Is there anything better than a lakeside firepit? Yes, if you also include a bocce ball court, pickleball court, open lawn area, shaded picnic tables and a surrounding trail system. Fireside Park has all of the above, overlooking the water’s edge. Pull up an Adirondack chair, soak in the peaceful view and stay awhile.
Warm Katy days call for a refreshing spot to beat the heat. Bring the kids to Sunset Park to play on the climbing equipment, slides and swings or open lawn (while you watch comfortably from the shade structure). Then let them loose on the splash pad to cool off. While you’re here, refill your water bottle, grab a book from the Free Little Library, and relax on one of the benches that overlooks the lake.
There’s nothing like an element of surprise and delight. Which is why we have not-so-hidden pocket parks throughout Elyson. They may not have names, but they’re no less important to our community. We like to think of them as little moments of wonderful.
Crescent Park & Compass Lake is planned to be 68 acres of outdoor fun. An astronomy-themed park will feature a spiral boardwalk and seating area on the top of a hill, where you’ll get a great view of the stars. And a little closer to earth, you’ll find a dock connecting to Compass Lake, along with a surrounding trail with plenty of trees for shade, and benches for taking a relaxing break.
