Parks in The Woodlands Hills combine active and passive play within forested environment
The latest additions to the impressive amenities – residents can enjoy in The Woodlands Hills – Sue Luce’s Daisy Park and Rick and Roz Dauzat Peace Park – have recently opened. Developed by The Howard Hughes Corporation, The Woodlands Hills is one of Houston’s newest master planned communities in Conroe and Willis, located 13 miles north of The Woodlands.
“We are excited to announce the addition of two parks, Daisy Park and Peace Park, in The Woodlands Hills,” said Heath Melton, Executive Vice President of MPC, Residential for The Howard Hughes Corporation. “Each park is surrounded by nature, creating the perfect ambiance for health, fitness and wellness activities for residents to enjoy. These nature-encompassing parks offer pedestrian connectivity within the community as each one is accessible just a short distance from homes.”
Sue Luce’s Daisy Park, a one-acre neighborhood park nestled in the trees and accented by daisies, serves as the social and recreational focal point for nearby neighborhoods in the “Grove” village of The Woodlands Hills. This whimsical activity park utilizes nature as the playground for younger and older children, featuring a giant spider climber, stepping logs and a hill that youth can climb up and roll down. Its playground, aptly called Branch Out, creates a tree fort within the park. It also features ADA-compliant swings. A pavilion provides a nice respite from the sun and serves as an area for gatherings with family and friends. To take in a little more nature, a natural trail bisects the park highlighting the native flora and fauna. A giant 24-foot native white oak tree is a highlight of Daisy Park.
“We are committed to nature and are proud of our masterfully-designed forested recreational amenities. The trees removed for this park project were reused within Daisy Park as park benches, play equipment and path pavers,” stated Melton.
Sue Luce’s Daisy Park is named in memory of the late Sue Luce, who was a successful Realtor® and pillar of Montgomery County. Her daughter, Nelda Luce Blair, won the naming rights in a charitable donation bid that benefited the Montgomery County Community Foundation. The auction item was donated by The Howard Hughes Corporation.
Rick and Roz Dauzat Peace Park features a 1.8-mile meandering pathway that winds along an intermittent creek bed, a tributary of Stewart’s Creek, accessible through three pedestrian boardwalks for leisurely walks. The forested park offers playful exploration with boulders and logs to scale and several nature trails. Connected by nature to two patio home neighborhoods in the “Ridge” village of The Woodlands Hills, Peace Park features shaded sitting areas for relaxation and reflection, away from the hustle and bustle of life.
Officially named Rick and Roz Dauzat Peace Park, with the naming rights donated for a charitable auction to Montgomery County Community Foundation from The Howard Hughes Corporation, the 2.5-acre park is designed with a passive, tranquil landscape for serene enjoyment. Native plants and wild birds indigenous to the area can be observed from the park.
