Hi Happy House Hunter,
Today we will be featuring the new neighborhood, Pomona. Pomona is a Hillwood Communities development, that can be found in Manvel, TX 77578. It is a tranquil, relaxing community, with homes ranging between the mid $200s to $600s.
- 2 miles from the Pearland Town Center
- 15 miles from the Texas medical Center
- 19 miles from Downtown Houston
This neighborhood features homes built by 7 remarkable builders including:
- Coventry Homes
- David Weekly Homes
- Highland Homes
- Perry Homes
- Plantation Homes
- Trendmaker Homes
- Toll Brothers
Pomona by Hillwood Communities elevates life’s everyday moments to take center stage. It ’s a place to both escape and connect, to unwind and to energize. In Pomona, community isn’t a place, it’s a bond between neighbors, friends and families. Conveniently close but with plenty of breathing room built in, Pomona is ideally situated for those who want to live at their own pace. And as a Live Smart℠ community, amenities have been carefully designed to promote genuine connection, inspiration and growth.
Along the tall grass and native wetlands of Mustang Bayou, you’ll find a truly connected community at Pomona. But perhaps the best feature is the one we left untouched—hundreds of acres of open space, greenbelts and marshland. No other community in the Houston area has kept this much land in its natural state—a difference you can see and feel each time you wind your way through Pomona.
- Resort-style pool
Pomona has 2 resort-style swimming pools, great for cooling down in the summer months. Poolside cabanas provide a shady, comfortable way to keep an eye on the kids splashing in the water nearby!
- Fish Camp
Their lake system is one of a kind, and provides views unlike any other community in the area. Grab your poles and bait and see if they’re biting down at the Fish Camp!
- Exploration Zone (Park)
Let your inner kid enjoy all the fun our park has to offer. Climb, slide, dig and swing at our amazing Exploration Zone!
- Hike & Bike Trails
Enjoy taking walk with neighbors or a fun bike ride with the family on the miles of hike and bike trails at Pomona.
- Camp Pomona
Everything you need to kick back and relax can be found at Camp Pomona, with a state of the art “exploration zone” playground, resort style pools with cabanas, catering kitchen, outdoor living and fire place, event lawn, and a fitness center.
- Orchard Park
Orchard Park is made up of a variety of fruit trees connecting Pomona back to its namesake.
- The Backyard (Park)
The Backyard has everything you asked your parents to build in your backyard but said no. It’s a place to escape the concrete jungle to a forested preserve where you can climb in the trees, hide in the tree house, or zip line across the imaginary treacherous shark infested waters. But don’t forget to catch up with friends at The Mantel with fire-side chats and extended summer nights. Nestled within 100 year old trees is a place to find your inner child and create lasting memories with your family.
When researching this neighborhood, one thing that stood out to me was the words of a the residents of Ponoma:
After 27 years in League City, we thought no other community could be better, but now we know that Pomona is a perfect slice of paradise. As soon as we pulled into the neighborhood, we instantly fell in love with the neighborhood/community, houses, and lifestyle. There are many things that separate Pomona from the rest!
- Pomona is truly in sync with all lifestyles whether you're a young professional or a family – buyers gravitate toward this community because of the commonality and culture that makes Pomona in fact Pomona.
- Everyone here is proud to own their home and show other communities that we are hard to keep up with. We are also pet friendly.
- We have a wonderful school district and even have an elementary [school] within our neighborhood.
- Outdoor activities – can you say resort pools, modern park and playground, walking trails, fish camp, and so much more.

The amenities are amazing… pools, park, crawfish boils, fishing tournaments, women's wine down events, toddler time, Holiday events (Santa, and Easter Bunny all visited), yoga, men's bourbon nights are just a very small handful of things that go on, on a monthly basis here in Pomona (zip line and citrus grove are coming)! We also have an elementary school here in the neighborhood!
Pearland Parkway (shops and restaurants), Costco, Sams, H-E-B, Randall's, Aldi, Walmart, Hobby Lobby, are less than 10 minutes away. There are also a ton of churches. Oh and Downtown Houston is a 20-25 minute drive too!”
Pomona is a community designed for you to get closer to nature without sacrificing modern amenities, or being far from conveniences.
Head out of town on Highway 288 towards Pearland, TX and you’ll find 1,000 acres of wide green spaces right on Mustang Bayou. Located off CR 101, Pomona is proud to be at the forefront of growth in this tremendous area where residents enjoy the charm of a small town with the conveniences of the big city. Pomona offers a convenient location near Houston Hobby and Texas Medical Center, as well as a variety of shopping, dining, entertainment and employment centers.
You can go two different routes in this community. You can decide to purchase an inventory home, or you can construct one from the ground up. Building a home can take between 4 and 7 months, but an inventory home, can be moved into in 2-6 weeks.
