Green Trails History

Green Trails, like most of the Greater Katy and west Houston areas, were mostly rural during the early 1900s. Two main things sparked growth in the area during the 1960s: Houston’s westward expansion and housing boom, and the construction of Interstate 10 (Katy Freeway).

Nearby George Bush Park, formerly Cullen-Barker, opened in the 1940s. The 7,800-acre park, along with the area now known as Green Trails, belonged to the Stephen F. Austin colony. Later, ranchers purchased land in the area.

Green Trails was built much later, between the early 1980s up to the mid-2000s. Its mature trees, picturesque homes, and winding streets still provide a great draw for homebuyers. The neighborhood’s exemplary schools and excellent location are also major factors to Green Trails’ continued popularity.
