Joining the family of masterfully designed parks in The Woodlands Hills, Coach Les Peacock Park holds a special place in the heart of so many people.
This park is named in memory of the late Les Peacock, a longtime coach and educator at Willis ISD. The naming rights were donated by The Howard Hughes Corporation to Willis ISD, which chose to name the park in memory of Peacock, who was highly regarded by students and fellow educators.
The wooded park is built to replicate a child’s ideal vision of a backyard fort. It is complete with climbing features and elevated play structures integrated among the trees to inspire imaginative and explorative play.
Spanning nearly one acre, Peacock Park is set in the neighborhood of Maybella Forest. It is designed with an appreciation for nature, just as the other parks are in The Woodlands Hills.
The 2,000-acre forested master planned community plans to eventually feature 20 neighborhood parks within a short walking distance to homes in the award-winning community.
During the ribbon cutting and dedication ceremony held in December of 2021, his wife Gigi Peacock expressed the family’s prayer that those whose lives were touched and impacted by Coach Peacock can visit the park and remember the love and lessons he taught so many people.
The other parks in The Woodlands Hills include the award-winning Founders Park, Teralyn Woods Park, Sue Luce’s Daisy Park, Roz Dauzat Peace Park, as well as the Lucy and Gus Dauzat Dog Park within Founders Park. Each park has a unique theme and features connected nature trails for hiking and biking. They are among the many amenities in The Woodlands Hills that foster healthy living and well-being, connecting with neighbors, and embracing nature.
