Summer might have its upsides, but in Houston it means a grueling 4-8 month span of relentless, fully humidified, heat. Developers have seemingly picked up on this with multiple waterside projects in the works wherein Houstonians can cool down. The latest one to be announced is the coming HTX Surf in Generation Park.
Coming fall of 2024, HTX Surf is a 15-acre manmade development planned for northeast Houston. The park promises action-packed fun with international food and drink, a pump park, leisure pool, a music and event lawn, and of course world-class waves.
Instead of making the drive out to Galveston which, let’s admit it, has neither waves nor idyllic beach conditions, Houstonians can head over to Generation Park for an immersive oceanfront and resort experience.
Once open, the park will provide an experience the whole family can enjoy. The cynosure of the Beach Street Surf development is its waves. Inspired by the world’s greatest surfing destinations, the park’s Wavegarden Cove will use the pinnacle of wave technology to create tailored waves to surfers of all levels.
As such, the cove will have three separate bays designated for riders of varying experiences; controlled, soft, and slow moving waves for beginners; open-face turn waves, barrels, slabs, and up to 2-meter high waves for more experienced surfers.
“We’re thrilled to welcome this innovative, world-class surfing destination to Generation Park. Such a unique amenity is a great asset for Houston and will attract a wide range of personalities–from professional surfers, amateur boarders, families, and corporate groups among others,” said Ryan McCord, President, McCord Development, and the owner/developer of Generation Park in a newsletter.
“The amenities and experiences at HTX Surf will rival a best day on the water, whether you’re an expert or new to the sport.”
HTX Surf hopes to carve out some space for itself in Generation Park, located inside Beltway 8, 25 minutes from downtown, Houston.
