The Grove: Connecting Pomona back to its namesake

The Grove is yet another attraction coming soon to Pomona! Plans include a large open-air pavilion, dog parks, and more! There will also be a tree farm with a variety of fruit trees. The fruit trees pay homage to Pomona’s history. In 1857, the first group of settlers that arrived in the area settled along Chocolate Bayou. Due to the favorable climate and fertile soils, the settlers began farming and growing fruit. They named the settlement Pomona, which comes from the Latin name Pomum, meaning “fruit,” specifically orchard fruit.

The natural beauty of Pomona

Pomona is a gem among greater Houston master-planned communities. Pomona residents share a unique connection to the land and nature. With its wide greenbelts, sloping hills, and century-old oak trees, Pomona provides a beautiful, natural area designed to promote community. This makes a perfect backdrop for what we call Camp Pomona in Manvel.

With its state-of-the-art “exploration zone” playground, resort-style pools with cabanas, catering kitchen, outdoor living and fireplace, event lawn, and fitness center. Pomona also has miles of trails for walking and biking with friends and family.
