Welcome back home to Hillsboro, a mixed-use, master-planned, new-home community roaming across 3,600 scenic acres in historic Helena, AL. Hillsboro welcomes you to a life that’s neighborly, connected, and walkable.
Hillsboro is your new hometown. It’s linked by over 14 miles of paved and wooded trails connecting you to neighborhood pools, playgrounds, parks, schools, and retail centers. Hillsboro puts your family in the perfect place to thrive.
About 2.5 miles of trails are currently in place, with 11.5 still planned. Tunnels, bridges, and scenic views dot each twist of the trails. Ideal for walking, jogging, and cycling, Hillsboro’s trails connect you to the many areas of our community, including Old Town Helena, Helena Elementary School, Helena Middle School, and Helena High School (some directly, others via sidewalks).
Children love to romp in our playground amongst the trees in Lee Springs Park. Swings, elevated walkways, slides, rope ladders, and trails offer young adventurers a picturesque park with plenty of things to climb on, glide down, and explore. Hillsboro offers many playgrounds throughout the community for families to enjoy.
The Appleford Clubhouse creates the perfect venue for hosting celebrations, meetings, family reunions, and other special events. A second clubhouse is planned to be built in Barimore for even more community enjoyment.
The Appleford Pool is a favorite spot to cool off with friends and neighbors during the bright summer months. Beat the heat, get some exercise, and soak up the sun right behind The Appleford Clubhouse. Even more poolside fun is coming soon, as a second community pool is planned for Barimore.
Hillsboro families have easy access to award-winning Helena schools, many right from our trail system and all within one mile of the Hillsboro community. Helena Elementary, Helena Intermediate (one of the few Alabama public schools to receive a distinguished Great Schools Rating of 8 out of 10), Helena Middle, and Helena High are just a stroll or bike ride away. Welcome back to providing your kids a great education.
