Oak Park Trails TX History

Oak Park Trails was established in 1991, during a period of growth in the Greater Katy area.

The area where Oak Park Trails now sits is home to a cluster of residential neighborhoods with a few commercial areas in between. During the early 1890s though, Greater Katy was a sparsely populated prairie – with areas around the Buffalo Bayou largely wooded.

Thanks to the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad (which started operating through the area in 1895), more people settled in the area, establishing farms and ranches. By 1945, the city of Katy was incorporated.

Several years later, developers started buying up the ranches and farms to build homes. Cinco Ranch was one of the most notable early developments in the area.

Today, growth continues in Greater Katy. Communities like Oak Park Trails continue to be popular options thanks to the KISD’s award-winning schools, improved accessibility, and great retail and entertainment nearby.
