The Woodlands Creekside Park Village

The Woodlands Village of Creekside Park is planned to be home to 7,100 new families. A mix of home styles, price ranges and homebuilders is found in the Village of Creekside Park, similar to the other villages in The Woodlands. Many of the same popular homebuilders who build in other areas of The Woodlands are building new homes in Creekside Park. New homes are currently priced from the $180’s to more than $3 million.

New homebuilding is underway in several neighborhoods located off the main entrance to the village on Gosling Road and in the neighborhood of Timarron off Kuykendahl Road. Sale of new homes and homesites is also underway in the gated community of Carlton Woods Creekside, home of a Tom Fazio Championship Golf Course.

Lakes & Parklands to Discover

Vast areas of parklands, totaling 1,850 acres, along with plentiful lakes and ponds, are the highlight of the new Village of Creekside Park. Here, you and your family can enjoy hiking, swimming, fishing, kayaking and canoeing, mountain biking, birding and other creative ways to commune with nature. It’s a true adventureland!

Many of the neighborhoods in Creekside Park are centered around parks or water features. A 72-acre lake and linear park, called Lake Paloma (Spanish for “dove”), extends east to west in the center of the village, acting as a scenic connector between neighborhoods. A 12-foot wide walking and biking trail will run along the banks of Lake Paloma. Major parklands include the 1,700-acre George Mitchell Nature Preserve, named in honor of The Woodlands’ founder, George Mitchell, and 20-acre Rob Fleming Park, named in honor of Rob Fleming, Texas Parks and Wildlife naturalist and artist.

A Vision Named for a Visionary

Trailheads will lead from several of the neighborhood parks into the 1,700-acre George Mitchell Nature Preserve at the northern border of the village. Two trailheads leading into The Preserve – one in the Village of Creekside Park and one in the Village of Indian Springs – are now open. Miles of soft surface trails are also open for hiking and birding. The George Mitchell Nature Preserve includes seven miles of frontage along Spring Creek, and is part of the Spring Creek Greenway Project, a joint effort of Harris and Montgomery Counties to amass 33 miles of Spring Creek frontage for a bi-county nature trail system extending from US 59 to Spring.

Rob Fleming Park features a Craftsman-style Pavilion; a playground; tree-lined promenades and groves of specimen trees; a naturally landscaped one-acre lake with lakeside conservation trail; a bluebonnet meadow; a field for community festivals; a butterfly garden; and a picnic area. A wildlife sculpture trail that will be a tribute to the artistry of Rob Fleming will be completed soon.

The Chipper

Image Source: Facebook

Several months ago, the lady who works at the British Depot store near the Tamina Farmers Market just west of the Woodlands, told me about a new fish and chips shop opening in the area. I have been anticipating this opening ever since. And boy, The Chipper lives up to all my waiting and wondering and anticipating. I had high expectations. This is authentic, outstanding fish and chips. They sell haddock and cod and the haddock is crazy good. The chips (or fries to us Yanks) are the best I’ve ever had. They are historic, and I can’t stop eating them. My favorite thing they sell is the mushy peas. I love mushy peas. If you’ve never had them, you have to try them. They have a nutty flavor that goes perfectly with the fish and chips. They also sell a dill flavored tartar sauce and a curry sauce. Their traditional English pies (different meat pies) are excellent too. If you are adventurous, they sell haggis. This is a small shop with about four tables, typical of fish and chip shops in England. Because of the small size, I usually get mine to go. Currently, they are open Wednesday through Saturday noon to 8pm. Go enjoy our little spot of England in Texas.

Huti’s 5 Free-Fire Grill

Image Source: http://www.hutis5.com/

If you want to eat excellent HEALTHY food in a fast casual atmosphere, look no further than Huti’s 5.  While it is ‘order at the counter’ and you have to clear your dishes like at home, this healthy eatery has an urban trendy atmosphere.  Maybe it is the industrial decor or the beers on tap or the craft sodas, but it feels like a cool funky place in an urban area.  The 5 in the name comes from the five steps to ordering.  First you pick your main.  The selection includes beef, chicken, salmon, pork, and even Feijoada (Portuguese stew).  I like that you can see everything as you are ordering. Then you choose your base from white rice, brown rice, or fresh crispy organic greens (salad).  Next you pick a side dish.  My favorite is the fire grilled squash.  Other options include roasted root vegetables, street corn, black beans, super greens, and plantains.  Next you sauce it up from some amazing options.  I love to mix them.  My favorite is peri peri and creamy avocado.  The creamy avocado balances the heat in the peri peri to perfection.  The chimichuri is also a favorite.  Step five is to top it off with something like white queso fresco, oranges, vinaigrette or sour cream drizzle.  The combinations are endless!  I was really pleased at how healthy and fresh the food is.  I have a couple of favorites.  My number one is chicken with salad greens topped with fire grilled squash and zucchini and finished with creamy avocado and peri peri sauce.  I add whatever tempts me at step 5.  Another favorite is the Feijoada with brown rice, street corn, and chimichuri.  This food is so delicious and it is healthy too.  The nutritional information is on the back of the menu so you can feel very proud of the meal you put together.  Because of the combinations, healthy eating has never been more fun and creative.
