(Conroe, Texas – April 2019) Surrounded by forest, lakes and vast green spaces, master-planned Grand Central Park gives new meaning to the phrase “getting back to nature.” 

Mother Nature has, indeed, smiled upon the Johnson Development community located five miles north of The Woodlands. Towering trees provide a canopy for miles of trails, two lakes offer opportunities for fishing and myriad birds answer the call of babbling brooks. 

Inspired by that splendor, luxury homebuilders have created an array of home designs priced from the $260,000s to the $600,000s.

Sparkling New Amenities
Complementing the lush natural surroundings will be a slate of sparkling new amenities. 

The most eagerly anticipated of these is the 13-acre Lake House Amenity Complex. Designed to seamlessly integrate the outdoor setting with indoor amenities, the complex features a resort-style pool, fitness room, yoga and event lawn, playground, freestanding pavilion for events and resident gatherings, and an event room with kitchen.

The Lake House pool is scheduled to open for the 2020 swim season, followed by the opening of the amenity complex toward the end of next year.

Opening this year will be three new parks— two for humans and one for dogs —located in the community’s West Village. 

Twilight Park with a playground, fitness trail and fitness stations; and a new Mystic Pond fishing pier with café lights, fire pit and gazebo will join Grand Central Park’s Trillium Park as gathering places for residents to picnic, play and exercise. 

The resident-only Frisky Biscuit Dog Park will allow pups to “raise the ruff” with two fenced areas for large and small dogs with play equipment and a dog wash station.

Retail Close to Home
Modern conveniences were not left out of the Grand Central Park master plan. Residents can easily shop for groceries, clothes and sporting goods at the on-site 336 Marketplace.

Anchored by a Kroger Marketplace, Marshalls, Ross, Michaels and HomeGoods, the 560,000 square feet of retail space also is home to restaurants and services like Chick-fil-A, MOD Pizza and Supercuts. Dick’s Sporting Goods is scheduled to open at the end of the year and there are plans to open a Torchy’s Tacos. 

Taste the Grand Central Park Lifestyle
The public can enjoy a taste of the nature-centric community during Brews & BBQ noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, April 13. The day devoted to beer and Texas barbecue will help grow the on-site Henry’s Home Horse & Human Sanctuary. Admission and event activities are free. Tickets for a catered barbecue lunch cost $10 and can be pre-purchased online at www.grandcentralparktx.com/brews-and-bbq or paid for with cash at the door.

In addition, builders will be opening the doors to eight model homes and dozens of move-in ready homes during Houston’s Largest Home Tour. Visitors can tour the homes daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and noon to 6 p.m. Sundays. Admission is free.
