A Sense of Community

One of the most appealing aspects of master planned communities is the genuine sense of belonging and community they foster. These neighborhoods are designed to encourage social interaction and create spaces that bring people together, and amenities such as community centers, pocket parks, and shared recreational spaces serve as gathering points, allowing residents to connect with their neighbors and build lasting bonds. Whether it’s sharing a meal with new friends at Camp Pomona’s catering kitchen or enjoying a concert on the event lawn, there are endless ways for residents to connect.


Thoughtful Design

Master planned communities excel in their thoughtful urban planning and infrastructure design. The consideration given to the location and accessibility of amenities and green spaces ensures that residents can get closer to nature without sacrificing modern comforts, and care is taken to ensure that the environment and local ecosystem isn’t disrupted. Even future growth is factored in by architects, designers, and engineers to ensure that every new addition fits in well with the existing landscape and avoids the crowding that can come with traditional neighborhoods.

Lifestyle and Recreation

Living in a master planned community like Pomona offers an array of lifestyle and recreational benefits. Residents who want to stay active can take advantage of an impressive fitness center, two resort-style pools, and miles of biking and walking trails. With our one-of-a-kind lake system, you can even spend the day casting your line at the Fish Camp or kayaking and paddleboarding at The Dock. With such an abundance of amenities, parks, and green spaces, Pomona provides ample opportunities for recreation without ever needing to leave the community.


Safety and Security

Safety is a top priority for most master planned communities, and Pomona is no different. In addition to Manvel being an exceedingly safe city to live in, Pomona’s HOA dues include active security monitoring through HomePro. With a monitored alarm system, residents can have peace of mind knowing that their home and their family are safe and secure.

Master planned communities often prioritize environmental sustainability and preservation by thoughtfully integrating green spaces, parks, and natural landscapes into their design. Sustainable construction practices, energy-efficient infrastructure, and eco-friendly initiatives are commonly implemented to minimize the ecological footprint of the community, ensuring that residents will be able to enjoy and connect with nature for years to come. From the charming pocket parks and scenic bike trails to Mustang Bayou’s hundreds of acres of natural wetlands and our initiative to protect the community’s century-old oak trees, Pomona is committed to complementing and preserving the area’s natural beauty.



Pomona is ideally located near several schools, healthcare facilities, grocery stores, shopping centers, and other essential services. With the Texas Medical Center, Pearland Town Center, Manvel Town Center, and dozens of top local employers all within short driving distance, residents can live, work, and play in the same place, reducing commuting time and providing more time for what matters. And for those who enjoy the occasional night out on the town, downtown Houston is only 20 miles away!

Educational Opportunities

Access to quality educational opportunities is a top concern for families searching for a new home, and many master planned communities are strategically located near local schools and universities for exactly that reason. Residents of Pomona are served by the highly ranked Alvin Independent School District – the second largest ISD in Brazoria County. Pomona Elementary, located just across the street from Camp Pomona, is within easy walking distance, while Rodeo Palms Junior High School and Manvel High School are just minutes away.


Long-Term Investment

While Pomona is firmly committed to the idea that your home is more than just a piece of property, it’s reassuring to know that investing in a home within a master planned community can yield significant long-term benefits. These neighborhoods typically experience steady property value appreciation due to their well-maintained spaces, top-class amenities, and overall desirability, and these factors can even end up protecting home values during periods of economic downturn. Similarly, the continual development and adherence to HOA standards ensure that both the value of the properties and their market demand remains high, making it easier to find potential buyers and obtain a favorable resale value.


Best in Class Home Builders

A major benefit of choosing a master planned community is knowing that your home will be constructed by true experts with a track record of excellence. Pomona’s builders have been hand-selected to ensure the finest quality construction, timeless designs, and exemplary customer service experience. With a curated selection of styles to choose from and a variety of customization options available, you can rest assured that each home in the community complements one another while also allowing room for your individual style to shine through.
