Lakes of Parkway TX History


Kickerillo Companies and Sueba USA started developing Lakes of Parkway in 1995. Before the area’s development, Paul Barnhart owned the 330-acre tract of land.

As with most west Houston suburbs, the tract was rural. It was a cattle ranch, one of the last tracts of land to be developed in the area.

Kickerillo purchased the home sites to develop homes in the subdivision. The home builder offered a variety of floor plans, designs, and price points. The construction of Lakes of Parkway ended in 2009.

Today, the community is one of the best-gated communities in the west Houston area. Its proximity to job centers and excellent schools continue to draw homebuyers to the neighborhood.
