Room to Grow: Raising a Family in Viridian

Summer is here, and you may be considering making the move to a new home during the kids’ summer vacation. If you’re looking for a new community in Arlington filled with things to do as a family, it’s not too late to explore Viridian!

This award-winning community offers everything families need to consider when choosing a new place to live:

Living in Viridian means being able to enjoy a wealth of community amenities that bring the kids outside to play in nature, and its proximity to major retail and restaurants means their favorites (and yours!) are nearby too.

8 Reasons Your Kids Will Love Growing Up in Viridian

#1. Waterparks & Splashpads

Summers as a kid weren’t complete until you made a splash, especially in the Texas heat! A splash park offers a safe and fun environment for our youngest residents, while older kids (and you!) can soak in one of the FIVE pools at Viridian Lake Club.

Bonus: Want to build sandcastles and play some sand volleyball? No need to take the kids on a road trip: enjoy the beach near your home on the shores of Lake Viridian.

#2. Weekends (& Some Weekdays!) at the Playground

It’s easy to take your kids outdoors and hit the playground. Viridian even has Fossil Park, a dinosaur bone-themed playground, that the kids can enjoy “excavating.” With plenty of playgrounds and pocket parks on-site and throughout the community, it’s easy to take the kids out to play any day of the week.

#3. Trails, Parks, and Room to Play

There are so many safe places to play outside with miles of trails, parks, and green space throughout the community. Think of the possibilities: family bike rides, walks by the lake, picnics in the park, or even roller skating (yes, it’s in again) along the trail. Viridian is a community that naturally invites your children to enjoy the outdoors.

#4. Spacious Homes to Grow Up In

Offering hundreds of floor plans by some of the nation’s top builders, your new home can grow with your family! Flex space in a new construction home can change with your family’s needs as the years go by. Rooms can adjust to change from a nursery to a playroom, or the dining room can be turned into a work from home space or hobby room. With so many floor plans to choose from, you have the flexibility to choose a home you can evolve as your family grows.

#5. Dog-Friendly Community

We haven’t forgotten about the fur babies. Viridian’s paved trails make daily walks a joy for your four-legged family members, and the on-site Arrowhead Dog Park has separate areas for small dogs and large dogs to play. You can even keep the dog in mind when choosing your flooring and finishing options for a new home.

#6. “A” Rated School District

Quality schools can be a deciding choice when moving to a new home, and children who live in Viridian are zoned to the acclaimed Hurst-Euless-Bedford (HEB) Independent School District. If you make the move and change your address before the school year starts, your children will be able to start in this acclaimed school district at the start of the school year.

#7. Welcoming, Inclusive Community

Viridian’s schools are lauded for their diversity, and Viridian prides itself in being a welcoming community for families of all types. Raise your children in a community that values diversity and inclusion.

#8. A Short Drive from Everyday Adventure

Is your family itching to get out of the house? Everyday adventures are only a short drive away! Viridian’s prime location near I-30 and TX-360 means that it’s surrounded by area shopping and dining. For outdoor fun, River Legacy Park has summer camps, nature trails, youth sports leagues, and recreation facilities like foot golf, splash pads, and a rock wall.

Viridian’s master plan was designed with growing families in mind. Focusing on a well-placed location near convenient retail & restaurants, while also providing plenty of opportunities to expose the children to the joys of nature within the community.
