The Woodlands

The Woodlands Texas

The Woodlands offers a beautiful montage of living at its best. Magnificent homes, winding nature trails, parks, shops and places of worship are carefully arranged in this lively and colorful panorama. In addition to being a scenic masterpiece, the native forests nurture higher values than those that are purely tangible. It’s the intangibles like human services, religious diversity, community spirit, healthcare and lifelong learning that are the cornerstones of community building. Those have been the guiding principles of The Woodlands since its founding more than 36 years ago.

It is 28 miles (45 km) north of Houston along Interstate 45. Though it began as a suburban development and a bedroom community, it has also attracted corporations and has several corporate campuses, most notably Chevron Phillips, Anadarko Petroleum Corporation, Huntsman, Woodforest National Bank, Baker HughesCB&IMcKesson CorporationHewitt AssociatesMaersk Line, and Safmarine.

It won a Special Award for Excellence in 1994 from theUrban Land Institute
