Cypress

A fantastic place to live, alongside the suburban streets and horses moseying about stables. Cypress is also home to many master planned communities, each with its own unique features.

Head of the Class: The Cypress-Fairfield Independent School District is known for its top schools, including several A+ rated campuses according to Children At Risk, a research based non-profit dedicated to improving public schools in Texas. Six elementary schools from the area received the top grade including, Sampson, Pope, Hamilton, Swenke, Warner, and Birkes. Area parents appreciate the first-rate academic and after-school programs at Smith, Hamilton, Spillane and Aragon middle schools. Cypress Ranch High School, home of the Mustangs, offers a full curriculum of AP and Gifted and Talented courses, as well as a wide variety of extra-curricular activities and sports teams on its handsome, red-brick campus.

The Berry Center, part of the Cypress-Fairfield Independent School District, houses five facilities-in-one, including an 11,000 seat stadium, 9,500 capacity arena, a theater, and conference center. The multi-purpose center hosts the athletic schedules of 10 area high schools, along with band concerts, drama productions, and the celebratory rites of passage, proms and graduations. Locals also enjoy the diverse calendar of outside performances, concerts and events. Current highlights include a number of holiday crowd-pleasers like the Artisan Ballet Company’s Nutcracker.

Wide Open Spaces: Rural farm landscapes are a common sight while driving through Cypress with cattle grazing alongside the suburban streets and horses moseying about stables. For a close up encounter with farm life, visit Bear Creek Pioneers Park, which has a small zoo featuring Vietnamese potbellied pigs, emu, horses, several Texas owls, and bird watching opportunities.

Make it an all-day outing and utilize one of the picnic areas before enjoying the many familyfriendly amenities like the walking and equestrian trails, tennis courts, fishing pond and playgrounds. The Dyess Park is a destination for sporting families with six softball fields and 25 soccer fields. Bikers will love the forested terrain of the 100 Acre Wood Preserve, where the trails connect to the Cypress Creek Mountain Bike Trail System. The whole family can take up horseback riding with lessons at the Chevalier Stables.

The Master Plan: Cypress is home to many master planned communities, each with its own unique features. Rock Creek brings the Texas Hill Country landscape to the area with rock waterfalls and 60 acres dedicated to streams, wooded trails, and five connected lakes, with the main lake stocked for fishing. Live the resort life at Towne Lake, a lakefront community with its own waterpark, fishing holes, hike and bike trails and plans for a future amphitheater. Drop anchor at the scenic Boardwalk at Towne Lake for shopping or dinner at Mod Pizza or Jaxton’s Bistro.

Dining & Entertainment: The Plazas at Longwood are home to the well-regarded and locally-owned restaurants, 429 American Grille, Mezzanote Ristorante, and Locatelli’s Pizza. Follow the handmade signs to The Cup on nearby Grant Road to grab a latte before running errands in the area. Locals love The Burger Shack Resort, where the hamburgers are as big and bold as their funky Texas yard art decor. Get your Cajun fix at the Texas Crawfish Barn, where you can grab-n-go or peel on location during crawdad season. MELT Gourmet Grilled Cheese is a new, decadent addition to the Cypress dining scene with options including brie and mango or the heavy duty combo of chorizo, corn chips, jalapeno, and cheddar. Become a regular at Hannan’s Café to keep up with the chef’s farm-to-table creations on the rotating chalkboard menu.

Check out the latest blockbuster at Studio Movie Grill, where you can have dinner served at your seat. For a nostalgic movie experience, pull up to The Showboat  DriveIn Theater for their weekend double-features. Trader’s Village is another weekend destination where shoppers hunt for treasures at this massive flea market and thrill seekers enjoy the carnival rides. Be sure to check out their event schedule full of festivals, cook-offs, and sales.
