Situated in far northeast Houston, Summerwood is a 1,500 acre master-planned real estate community with an emphasis on the great outdoors. Home owners enjoy 200 acres of parks with 17 acres of lakes plus greenbelts and open natural areas. In fact, the Texas Council of Engineering Companies awarded Summerwood the Silver Medal for its ongoing efforts to preserve 150 acres of nearby wetlands that provide habitat for native species.
The entire Summerwood community is blessed with parks and playgrounds plus hiking, biking, running and strolling trails that crisscross all 1,500 acres. Lakeview Park, on the edge of Lake Houston, has a children's play area, gazebo, dock and nature trails to explore.
Summerwood’s 6,500 square foot Residents Club Central and the smaller Residents Club East offer a variety of water fun. The first has a junior Olympic-size pool with lap lanes near the lighted tennis courts and a fitness room. The smaller has two pools: a zero-entry pool with a waterslide and a second pool with spray features and wade-in entry for the youngest water lovers. The 3.5-acre Club Summerwood has a lodge-style clubhouse for parties and events, plus a coffee shop-style area. There is also a Great Lawn with a stage for family-friendly events.
For tech-savvy residents, Summerwood has a community intranet, the social media network of the community. It's private and allows residents to keep up on news, events and activities.
The array of shopping options include the “Shops at Summerwood” with everything from karate classes and pedicures to Mexican food. Deerbrook Mall, a major retail and entertainment mall, is in nearby Humble.
Students attend Pre-K through 12 in the respected Humble Independent School District. The elementary school is located within the community and is walking or biking distance for many. And Lone Star College - Kingwood is only 15 miles from Summerwood.
