This 2,000-acre new development is set in the beautiful forests near Lake Conroe. The community features 112 acres of open space including a 16-acre Village Park. Founders Park has an activity center with a fitness facility and event lawn, a pool complex, adventure playground and other amenities, all set within the gently rolling site. Residents will have full access to the natural forest and stream from within the park site. The character of the development was inspired by the existing natural attributes of the land, such as the trees, wildflowers, mature shrubs, creeks and topography. The entry monuments and neighborhood signs that lead to the center of the community are designed to highlight the beautiful natural scenery. The signs are a mix of metal and natural stone materials that set the stage for the community and its amenities.
The amenity center and park are designed to reflect the natural beauty of the land and seamlessly fit together within the site to enhance user experiences. The amenity center, designed by Studio Red, has a versatile event space that fully opens to the event terrace for indoor/outdoor events. Also included are a fitness center, child activity room, flexible spaces for small group activities, and a yoga lawn overlooking the pool. The architecture is designed to reflect the character of the land and is situated on site to take full advantage of the natural topography.
