I've lived in Greatwood for over 18 years and have raised both of my kids here! With two of the finest elementary schools within the neighborhood, your kids will get an excellent education! Mine did! The beauty and aesthetics of this area are unique in that the first thing you notice are the trees and greenbelts. Perfect for running, cycling or walking your dog, the natural feel of the community is what drew us to it. With 3 beautiful pools, an 18 hole golf course and plenty of tennis courts and jogging trails this master planned community is one of the jewels in the Sugar Land area!

We absolutely fell in love with the area when we first saw it and were lucky enough to find a beautiful home located in a quiet cul-de-sac. Most of our neighbors have been here as long as we have and the secure feeling we feel is due to the constables that patrol the area regularly and the security cameras that are located throughout the neighborhoods.

The community is so attractive and it draws buyers frequently. It gives you such a warm, welcoming feeling with these lush trees. When a community looks established, people may have a negative connotation about homes being old. But it's not the case here. You see well-maintained properties throughout the subdivision. The allure of Greatwood, in addition to its natural surrounding, lies in its access to the freeway, range of home prices, amenities, safety, schools, and, in recent years, commercial development that has made life easier for the residents. Greatwood has so much to offer to a wide variation of individuals.
My experience in Greatwood has been great. I am currently a college student living in Greatwood, and I grew up and was raised in Greatwood as well. The neighborhood is extremely family oriented and safe. I attended elementary school at both of the local schools and had a great time (great kids and teachers). While a kid, I played sports (and had a blast), and many of my sports teams' practices were held in many of Greatwood's sports fields, which were always trimmed and up to date. I also swam for one of the neighborhood's swim teams; the Greatwood Gators, which I really enjoyed. The local pools in Greatwood (there are 3) are also great. Greatwood also has winding sidewalk running trails which are beautiful. You'll find a handful of restaurants, bars, gyms, and other small businesses, within Greatwood, and just outside its borders. Complaints or cons about Greatwood are hard to come by, but one thing I would like to see change is the addition of dirt running trails.
