Like an artist's palette, The Woodlands offers a beautiful montage of Houston living at its best. Magnificent homes, winding nature trails, parks, shops and places of worship are carefully arranged in this lively and colorful panorama. In addition to being a scenic masterpiece, the native forests nurture higher values than those that are purely tangible. It's the intangibles like human services, religious diversity, community spirit, healthcare and lifelong learning that are the cornerstones of community building. Those have been the guiding principles of The Woodlands since its founding more than 36 years ago.

The Woodlands is an unincorporated area operating independently of city government under the umbrella of The Woodlands Township. The Woodlands Township provides municipal-type services such as:
Police and fire protection and emergency services
Park, pathway and streetscape maintenance
Coordination of one of the nation's most successful Neighborhood Watch programs
Enforcement of the community's covenants and architectural controls
The funds necessary to provide these services come from taxes charged to residents according to the area in which they live and the value of their home. There are also associations and Residential Design Review Committees for each village that promote village events and maintain the integrity of homes and neighborhoods.
