Bridle Trails Neighborhood Vision




The Bridle Trails neighborhood has a rural pastoral feel with large forested areas and an equestrian community character within an urban environment bordering Bridle Trails State Park. The Bridle Trails Shopping Center provides a mix of neighborhood oriented commercial services to surrounding residents and is an active focal point for the neighborhood.

The Bridle Trails commercial area has been transformed into an active, attractive, mixed use residential and commercial village with neighborhood oriented businesses and gathering places. A residential village surrounding the shopping center provides a built-in customer base to support high-quality retail establishments, allowing people to walk to shops and services without getting in their cars. Nearby Snyder’s Corner provides a visual open space amenity for the nearby mixed use neighborhood center.

From the 2018 Bridle Trails Neighborhood Update:

Bottom line, we are making sure we’re part of an active, thriving local commercial center designed to be a vibrant and active  place for residents and neighbors to live, shop, play, gather and enjoy – today, tomorrow and into the future.
