THE LIVABLE FOREST IS HOME TO MAGNIFICENT GOLF COURSES & TOP NOTCH LIVING

Kingwood is a master-planned community located just 20 miles north of downtown Houston and three miles north of Humble. More than 61,000 residents live in the ?livable forest.? Each village of Kingwood is unique with its own amenities such as pools and trails for biking and jogging. The villages are all connected by greenbelts and parks that create a serene environment ? a refreshing escape from the rapid pace of city life.

Many professional people have traded their commutes into Houston for office space in one of the numerous professional buildings. What better way to live, than to work and play within a short distance of home. The Humble Independent School District serves the Kingwood area and rates as one of the best academic districts in the Houston region. Lone Star College District serves the area with our own Kingwood Campus.

In Kingwood, Friendswood Development Company has carefully integrated what nature has provided in a picturesque site canopied by more than 20 species of shade trees, sprinkled with wildflowers, graced by families of deer, and filled with native birds, ducks, and fish. This most exceptional setting of more than 14,000 acres has been crafted over a span of 30 years.Adding to nature?s bounty, Friendswood has added over 75 miles of greenbelts for bicycling, walking or jogging, neighborhood playgrounds with pools, and grand-scale community parks that provide ball fields, soccer fields, and boating access to Lake Houston. For horse lovers, Kingwood has a boarding stable and riding area. Two private-member clubs provide five outstanding 18-hole golf courses, 27 tennis courts, and fine dining and meeting facilities. Unlighted tennis courts are provided at both Kingwood and Kingwood Park High School. They are open to the public when not being used by students.
