Basic information about the neighborhood and its surroundings.

Neighborhood Map

Meadowcreek Village was developed in sections over a 40-year period. It is located entirely within the City of Houston, but is split by school districts and voting precincts. The interactive map below shows these details. Use the slide-out menu to turn on and off layers (best to show only one at a time). You can also zoom in or out or move the map as needed.



Meadowcreek Village Park

Centrally located in the neighborhood, Meadowcreek Village Park has been a hub of neighborhood activity since it was dedicated in 1959. Programs and classes ranging from arts & crafts to sports are available for youth and adults throughout the year. In addition to a community center, the park includes a covered multi-use pavilion, children’s playground, baseball fields, tennis courts, picnic areas, and a large open green space. For those who like to walk, the sidewalk surrounding the park and nearby Patterson Elementary school is ¾ mile.

About the Neighborhood

In November of 1950, Robert W. Clemens, George Fasullo, and John E. Cashman filed documents with the county clerk's office establishing Meadowcreek Village. Graduates of Rice Institute, these developers saw the potential of the vacant land southeast of Houston, midway between downtown and the recreation areas of Galveston Bay. Time would prove them correct. Many of the initial residents of the neighborhood worked at nearby Ellington Air Force Base and enjoyed the convenience of being close to their work and to downtown shopping and entertainment. The opening of NASA's Manned Spaceflight Center nearby gave even more importance to the area as a prime residential enclave.

More than just a residential subdivision, Meadowcreek Village was one of Houston's first planned communities. Areas for a park, schools, churches, and shopping were all part of the original concept. Because of its many innovations, the neighborhood was featured in several home shows during its early years. It is a testament to the efforts of the developers, the designers, and the builders that the neighborhood has remained a pleasant place to live for more than 50 years - indeed a rarity in the Houston area.
