Blazing New Trails


We are so blessed to live in a city that is rich in culture and diversity. 

Houston has an incredible food and art scene, fantastic shopping, outstanding performance and visual art venues, local sports teams representing all major sports and boasts a plethora of parks and trails for our growing community to enjoy.

​There are so many factors that people look for, not only in a house during the home buying process, but also finding that perfect neighborhood that offers everything a homeowner could dream of. If you are contemplating a move, do not hesitate to contact the Perdomo Properties team to discuss your options. Our experienced agents are experts in the greater Houston area, and specialize in the Memorial Villages and surrounding Memorial communities. We provide a seamless, hands-on experience throughout the buying and selling process of your home. 

The Wilchester, Wilchester West, Yorkshire and Memorial Glen communities are highly coveted for their convenient location to Memorial shopping destinations that offer extensive cuisines and amenities while zoned to exemplary public schools. This special area of town, tucked in the prestigious Memorial area, not only has maintained popularity and stable home values (even in declining markets), but also is highly desirable with its proximity to esteemed hike & bike trails of Terry Hershey. 

​Beautiful, tranquil views of Terry Hershey.

In a recent article, Houstonia named Terry Hershey Park Hike & Bike Trail a personal favorite!

"Located along Buffalo Bayou between the Beltway and Highway 6, this incredible gateway to Houston nature boasts some of our greatest hike-and-bike trails. The Quail Trail—a shady, lightly hilly paved path stretching from Eldridge Parkway to Wilcrest—is perfect for both walkers and cyclists, and eventually connects to George Bush Park. Mountain bikers prefer the dirt-path "anthills" through the woods along the bayou." (Source: Houstonia)

Our wonderful city has so many incredible trails and parks to enjoy and there will be a very large expansion within our city by 2020. 

The Bayou Greenways 2020 project, "a partnership between the nonprofit Houston Parks Board and the Houston Parks and Recreation Department... is stitching together 150 contiguous miles of hike-and-bike trails—greenways—and linear parks along our eight bayous by the end of next year.

'It's a game changer in a lot of ways,' says the Houston Park Board's Doug Overman, not only because it will help keep cyclists and pedestrians off of busy roads as they traverse the city, but because 'it puts Houston on the map in terms of the national conversation about how cities are addressing livability and connectivity—the intersection between green space, mobility, and economic development.' 

So what's next? Bayou Greenways 2020 is part of the even bigger Bayou Greenways Initiative, which will continue to expand access to Harris County's greenways and provide seating, trash and recycling receptacles, paved trails, quarter-mile markers, and signage along our waterways, while supporting indigenous trees, wildflowers, and wildlife." (Source: Houstonia)
