Kingwood is a great community that is clean, friendly, and peaceful. The schools prepare students for a college education and the teachers are all willing to do whatever they can to make sure the students understand and learn the material being taught. The community as a whole is a safe environment for everyone and there is constant support for all school activities and sports. This is a incredible place to live where everyone knows everyone. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else!

Kingwood is a safe, beautiful town. Awesome place to raise a family, and close to Houston. Kingwood has numerous diverse religious organizations, active town square, and beautiful parks. Kingwood was the very first master planned community. They call it "the bubble" it has everything you need in a suburb community, schools both public and private, restaurants, grocery stores, and it's own movie theater. There are numerous different sports teams and leagues. Each smaller subdivision has it's own pool/park and it has miles and miles of concrete trails throughout the different subdivisions connecting them together. Kingwood is a great place to live and raise a family.
The Kingwood Area provides a welcoming environment to it's residents, as well as visitors. It is a community-driven environment in which you can witness solidarity from businesses and people no matter what your needs are. It is environmental friendly, it provides side-walks to promote walking and bike riding commutes and it is one of the greenest city's in the whole Houston area. This attributes has made the city known by many as "The Living Forest." The only necessary change to make this city even better, is the traffic during commuting hours, there are only a few major streets that connect you to the highway and they can get very congested during busy hours. However, the people of the area are always willing to give you a right of way in the middle of it all, making Kingwood a wonderful place to live and work in.
