Kingwood TX

Known as the “The Livable Forest,” Kingwood is the largest master-planned community in Houston. Kingwood is also one of the safest and quietest communities in Houston, making it popular for those who plan to start or are starting a family. Anyone driving through the community will be impressed by the calm atmosphere and the abundance of lush forested areas.

This picturesque community lies 20 miles north of downtown Houston and three miles north of Humble, making it convenient for those who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city and come home to the tranquility of nature.

Kingwood is divided into 25 neighborhoods that are called “villages.” Each village has its own homeowners association and architectural guidelines. These villages offer amenities like community pools and playgrounds, to which residents have free access. These villages are also responsible for the maintenance of the trails that wind around the community.

The trails in Kingwood are the greenbelts that give the community its nickname, “The Livable Forest.” Along with parks, trails provide safe paths for residents to walk, bike, or jog on while admiring the pristine surroundings and the variety of flora and fauna found therein. There are 20 different species of trees stretching their boughs over Kingwood with families of deer, flocks of birds, and paddlings of ducks calling the forest home.
