December 3, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

On 640 acres in northeast Houston, developer Monty Galland and the Grand Texas team are not just planning the area’s next theme park, but an entire entertainment district to boot.

Renderings of the entertainment district, called Grand Texas Sports and Entertainment District, were presented at a press conference Nov. 13

In addition to the park, which will be situated on 150 acres, the master plan includes:

  • A water park, called Big Rivers Water Park, that will sit on 40 acres of land
  • Ballpark of Montgomery County, which will host professional- and independent-league baseball games
  • DownTown Texas, a 450,000-square-foot shopping and restaurant district
  • Montgomery County Event Center, which will have close to 200,000-square-feet of space and will host a professional hockey team
  • Grand Texas Sportsplex, which will have 90 acres of baseball and softball fields
  • At least two hotels and an RV resort in an area called Hospitality Village

Grand Texas also launched its new website Wednesday. Galland said the first part of the master plan to be delivered will likely be the water park, which is slated for April 2015. The developer is currently under contract with 22 more acres for future expansion, he said.

The site for the Grand Texas Entertainment District is located at Hwy 242 and US 59/I 69 and includes acreage on the north and south sides of Hwy 242. The site is on the west side of US 59/I 69 and is located in East Montgomery County. The GTED will consist of a total of 610 acres, with the majority of the site located on the north side of Hwy 242.  Between Kingwood and Cleveland, TX, South of the Sam Houston National Forest.

The Grand Texas theme park is designed with the early days of Texas in mind. It will include equestrian trails, a full-sized steam train and a stage coach line.
