Founders Park at The Woodlands Hills won a Merit Award by the Texas Association of Landscape Architects professional 2020 awards program – a program that recognizes excellent design throughout the profession of landscape architecture.
Founders Park is a signature, 16-acre park that provides a centralized green space for The Woodlands Hills community and maintains a harmonious balance with nature. The design objective aims to preserve and enhance the existing character of the site and transform it into an exceptional amenity that celebrates the natural topography and valuable ecological habitat, while also providing multiple levels of active and passive recreation. This central park space is the heart of the community and part of a larger, 112-acre park system connected by green space, trails, and bike paths. The design features an amenity center, integrated playground and sprayground, aquatic complex, dog park, tennis courts, and open space that enhance the natural character and feel, take advantage of sightlines and preserve existing vegetation. Through careful planning and intentional design, Founders Park has been amenitized and programmed to create a recreation destination that focuses on landform, ecology, education, and exploration that benefit the community and wildlife alike.
