Welcome to Elyson


We're the next great thing in Katy from Newland Communities (yep, the people behind Cinco Ranch and Seven Meadows). So, we know a thing or two about community—and creating places that aren't just great from the start, but get better over time. We'd love to show you.


Community Pool - Come on in, the water's better-than-fine. Because our resort-style pool has lap lanes, a kid-friendly beach entry and plenty of room to splash. And here's some refreshing news: because Houston heat doesn't take a break, neither do we. So, our pool is open year-round.

Fitness Center - It's easy to get yourself to the gym when the gym is right in the neighborhood. Elyson features a well-equipped fitness center right in Elyson House. So, you can get in an exhilarating cardio session first thing in the morning, or de-stress at the end of the day.

The Event Lawn - Run. Kick a ball. See a concert. Go to a movie night or a community event. The possibilities are wide open (literally). Enjoy this never-muddy, always-green grassy area made for whatever you want to do today.

Game room - It's the ultimate family room. Play ping-pong, shuffleboard, or foosball. Let your teens and tweens watch a movie or TV show. Or challenge the neighbors to a card or board game. Hang out. Let loose. And have fun. (Of course, we didn't need to tell you that.)

Parks - We have four parks (and more on the way) with infinite ways to play. Have a picnic. Play catch. Climb on the equipment. Or, head 8 miles to Mary Jo Peckham Park and 4.5 miles to Paul Rushing Park, where you can fish, bird watch, play miniature golf…or let your dog run leash-free in a park of its own!

Trails - It's one thing to have miles of trails (which we do). But it's another thing completely to have almost 30 miles of them, leading to parks and over 750 acres of open space (which we will).

The Orchards - Pecans. Oranges. Figs. To honor the agricultural heritage of the Katy prairie, we've planted orchards throughout the community and you’ll one day be able to enjoy the fruits of our labor.

Education is everything

Elyson schools are part of the Katy Independent School District, which ranks as the No. 2 school district in the Houston region by niche.com, which gave Katy ISD an overall grade of A+, with additional A+ grades for the Academics, Teachers and College Prep categories. The ranking and grades are based on rigorous analysis of academic and student life data from the U.S. Department of Education along with test scores, state assessment proficiency and college data. So, you could say they’ve done their homework.

Because it means that our school-age residents get a quality education in a top-rated district—at three brand-new schools on a state-of-the-art campus, plus a future elementary school planned right in our community. What can we say? We love learning.


Good food. Good friends.

We believe there should be places where everyone knows your name—and how you take your coffee. Places like Elyson Café. Located right in the Elyson House, it's the center of community life—where you can stop for a post-workout smoothie, a poolside sandwich, coffee & conversation overlooking the event lawn, or a lunch date with the kids. It's a friendly, full-service restaurant (one where the service really does come with a smile).
