Founders Park is a 16-acre community park within The Woodlands Hills, a new master-planned community by The Howard Hughes Corporation. Founders Park has an amenity center, pool complex, adventure playground and sprayground, event lawn, dog park, tennis courts, open play, trails, and undisturbed natural areas. The character was inspired by the existing natural attributes of the land, such as the trees, wildflowers, mature shrubs, creeks and topography. The large adventure playground builds on the topography of the site to create exciting experiences for exploration and play.
Nestled into the playground is an interactive sprayground stream which winds through the playground. The playground pavilion is a great place to relax and take in views of the site. The playground invites children and adults alike to explore and have fun. Founders Park is divided by a natural stream crossing through the site. A pedestrian bridge connects the amenity center, pool, and playground on the north side to the dog park, tennis courts, and open play areas on the south side. The stream bed remains largely untouched and is a great place to explore the natural beauty of The Woodlands Hills.
