Paseo de la Resaca:
"1000 Acres of Excellence"
in Brownsville, Texas

Paseo de la Resaca is the trademark name of the thousand acre Master Planned Community in Brownsville, Texas, formerly known as Hudson Farm. Hubert R. Hudson, Sr., acquired the land for farming in 1937. From 1937 to 1993 the farm was utilized for various agricultural uses. The City of Brownsville, however, grew to surround the thousand acres and in 1993 the Hudson Farm partnership began development planning. Implementation of the plan began in 1995.  Today only a few acres remain to be developed.  Today, Paseo de la Resaca has a tax base of about $400 million consisting of 3,000 households and about one million square feet of commercial and public buildings, surrounding a 100+ acre park with a USTA award winning Tennis Center, An “Olympic-conforming” swimming center, and 8 miles of hike and bike trails that connect the entire community within the community of Brownsville. Our Master Planner, Richard Browne is best known for Columbia, Maryland and The Woodlands, north of Houston, but his legacy for “Quality of Life” lives on in Paseo de la Resaca.
