WoodCreek Reserve is a 500-acre master-planned community in the city of Katy, Texas. The neighborhood has quickly become one of the most sought-after addresses in the West Houston area and includes an outstanding residential amenity package, exceptional Katy ISD schools and a convenient location.

Long before the idea of WoodCreek Reserve had ever been envisioned, nature was at work. The land, the bayou, and majestic oak trees were following the architecture of nature, creating what is now a pristine 100-acre nature reserve. Nestled in this heavily wooded nature reserve, WoodCreek Reserve is Katy's new master-planned community. WoodCreek Reserve is an artful orchestration of the beauty that nature created and an unprecedented residential amenity package. Crafted in a truly unique manner, every home site in WoodCreek Reserve is larger than average to give residents more space to call their own. Extensive care and thoughtful planning have gone into making WoodCreek Reserve an exquisite place to live. Past generations carefully preserved its beauty for your family and generations to come.
