Life in Dickinson


Dickinson Bayou, a large navigable body of water, is lined by the largest stand of trees South of Houston, and as such, is readily discernible from the air. The Bayou was once a dredged, industrial waterway, but now is a 20-foot deep recreational attraction for fishing, boating, swimming, and water-skiing.

Dickinson is rapidly growing with new single family homes leading the charge. Successful redevelopment of retail and commercial projects, along with an increase in new commercial building starts indicates that Dickinson will have a bright future for many years to come.
