Houston Energy Corridor Neighborhood Spotlight: Parkway Villages
The Houston Energy Corridor is a great place to live, with over 26,000 acres of recreational parks and 50 miles of trails! Many neighborhoods in the Houston Energy Corridor share proximity to Terry Hershey Park, which contains 11 miles of hiking and bike trails.
Just south of Terry Hershey Park, you’ll find the tree-lined streets of Parkway Villages. This is a 224-acre network of 11 master-planned communities by Sueba USA, an award-winning developer. Construction of the first neighborhoods began in 1993, concluding about 10 years later. The Parkway Villages are bordered by Terry Hershey Park to the north, Briar Forest Drive to the south, Eldridge Parkway to the east, and Forest Park Drive to the west.
Parkway Villages include the following communities. Most, but not all, of the communities are gated and have an owner’s association:
- The Retreat
- Tracewood Park
- Maplewood Park
- Enclave Lake
- Briarstone Park
- The Courts
- Windsor Cove
- Sienna Cove
- Laguna Springs
- The Villas
- Madera Vista
There is a wide array of housing styles, lot sizes and price points in Parkway Villages. For example, Enclave Lake is a gated community of elegant luxury homes, situated on large, lush settings of up to an acre. A charming lake, ample green space and beautiful waterfalls give residents of Enclave Lake an abundant, resort-like lifestyle.
Parkway Villages also have a number of communities that are less elaborate, yet very nicely appointed with upscale amenities. The homes are well-built and enjoy a reputation for quality. The area is very desirable, and tends to retain strong home values during all market conditions.
Parkway Villages are located in close proximity to shopping, dining, recreation and services. West Oaks Mall and West Oaks Central Shopping Center is a short drive away, and there are a number of convenient shopping and dining choices in virtually every direction. Commuters enjoy easy access to the Katy Freeway.
Public education for residents of Parkway Villages is provided by the Houston Independent School District.
