The Village of Alden Bridge was created in 1994 by Roger Galatas, the President of the Woodlands Operating Company at the time, and was named after his home town in Louisiana. Alden Bridge is one of the largest villages in The Woodlands boasting more than 21,000 residents and 7,000 homes. It features 25 parks, 3 area swimming pools, two village shopping centers, a number of neighborhoods, and and several wonderful schools. Dining options include fast food to full service.
The village itself is bordered by FM 1488 and FM 2978, with Jones State Forest on the East. The Forest offers many family friendly events to give the community the opportunity to learn about and interact with nature. It is one of the nation's largest working urban forests which counts nearly 80,000 visitors each year.
The Alden Bridge Village Association is a non-profit association that is made up of elected volunteers selected by residents. They meet every second Tuesday of each month at 7:00 PM at The Woodlands Township Building. The group oversees civic and social events, and serves as an interface between residents and the board of The Woodlands Township.
