The Woodlands Hills | Founders Park

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. Adjacent to the amenity center is the pool complex featuring a leisure pool with a climbing wall and diving rock. The leisure pool spills into the lazy river via an infinity edge connecting the pools. A separate lap pool and cabanas offer options for all users. 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.
