I wonder who keeps pouring the hot wax ( I guess that's what it is) in the red box at Walgreens on Rayford. I know that's off topic, but goodness it's getting out of hand. Like you stated, I'm sure it's teenagers doing all this mischief.

The people I know who live in Imperial Oaks seem to like it. They also seem to like going over to The Woodlands to use their amenities (pools, parks, etc). I would imagine that happens a lot.

Imperial Oaks is lovely. Also you can try Spring trails if you are worried about noise but honestly, Imperial Oaks is vast and some parts are so far from the main road that you hardly hear any noise. I live in ST and I love the neighborhood.

I would think that Imperial Oaks vs. Woodlands is much the same debate as Cinco Ranch vs. all the other communities on the south side of 10. As you said, same basic area, dollar goes further, etc.

I've only heard good things about Imperial Oaks, also. (have family that live in the area and we lived in Spring for a brief time in 1997-99.)

I no longer live in Imperial Oaks, but I did until a month ago for 13 years. Part of me is very sorry we left. Imperial Oaks is filled with amenities. There are 4 pools (a 5th planned), a splash pad, two tennis courts, a volleyball court, 3 clubhouses, a dog park, a dozen (maybe more) playgrounds, nature trails, ponds, two (good!) elementary schools within walking distance of anywhere, 3 basketball courts, an outdoor pavilion, fitness room, and more.

Your HOA fees vary by where you live and will range from $365-$785. The later being the gated parts. The community is active and fairly friendly. Of course, it always depends on your immediate neighbors. Development isn't going to be stopping any time soon. Some houses are fairly close together (10 feet) and others are spaced nicely.

Your money will go a lot farther there than in The Woodlands. Funny thing is Imperial Oaks is closer to all The Woodlands amenities--mall, movie theater, other shopping, etc. You can also buy Woodlands pool passes (at a higher fee, of course) and take part in the REC center activities.

As far as noise goes, it's the same as any other neighborhood. Same with crime.
