The Woodlands, Texas

The Mitchell Energy and Development Corporation instigated the planned community of The Woodlands in 1972. In 1974, the first homes were ready for purchase. Growth of the community was spurred by the tremendous boom of nearby Houston.

Today, approximately one quarter of the 27,000 acres is designated for use as greenbelts, parks and protected reserves to help retain the natural beauty of the forest. The Woodlands hosts ninety miles of hike and bike trails as well as 70 parks, including a 200-acre lake complete with a dragoon.
