The Summerwood™ community is interconnected by trails winding throughout the community, and is home to several dedicated parks, the largest of which is Lakeview Park. If that's not enough, surrounding the park are more opportunities to commune with nature. Lake Houston is the most obvious asset with nearly year-round water skiing, boating and fishing. The Summerwood community borders Deussen Park which has boat ramps and docks, a duck pond, playgrounds and fields for many different sporting activities. Jesse H. Jones Park and Nature Center, just minutes away, features over 300 acres of southern forest with a variety of micro habitats including swamps, sloughs, and natural white sand beaches along Spring Creek. The park's many amenities and special features include: boardwalk and trails, canoe launch, cypress bog, nature center, outdoor classroom, playgrounds and picnic areas.
