Located between Sugar Land and Missouri City, First Colony is a dynamic mix of community, retail and business. A 9,700-acre master-planned community, First Colony offers an extended variety of neighborhoods, schools, businesses, shopping and recreation woven together with a unique blend of lakes, parks and greenbelts.
Created in 1976, First Colony is located in the heart of Ft. Bend County, one of the top fastest-growing counties in the nation, and is home to 300-plus companies in more than 10 major business parks.
The neighborhoods that make up First Colony offer a wide variety of lifestyle options from single-family homes and estate properties to townhomes and garden homes. First Colony students attend Ft. Bend Independent School District schools or one of the fine private institutions in the area.
First Colony’s Aquatic Center offers an Olympic-sized heated pool. Residents may relax or fish at the neighborhood’s 89-acre lake, play golf at the Sweetwater County Club, or enjoy a game at one of 23 athletic fields. Recreational facilities also include playgrounds, lighted tennis and volleyball courts and jogging trails. The First Colony Community Association’s Parks & Recreation Department hosts programs, events, classes and sports leagues, from gymnastics and dance to table tennis and underwater hockey, as well as classes in Spanish, bridge, golf and scuba diving.
First Colony Mall is the retail pulse of the area. A highlight of the First Colony community has been the addition of the very popular Sugar Land Town Square, with an inviting “Main Street” feel that blends working, shopping and play.
