Good day,
We'll be relocating to The Woodlands in the near future and will be renting. My husband has looked at quite a few houses and we've narrowed our choice down to 2 houses, one located in Cochrans Crossing and the other in Creekside Park. Any suggestions, advice on which village would be better suited for us?

We have a young child with another on the way. I'd like to take advantage of child friendly places (i.e. tot lots, parks, pathways, rec centers, etc.). Would like to meet other young families. Eventually have the kids go to Pre K (international school or the like). Close to other amenities (shopping, library, etc.).

It seems to be that CC is more established, lots of trees whereas CP is newly built, minimal trees. The CC house has no pool, but lots of trees whereas the CP house has a pool but no trees. Having lived in much colder climates, does having trees help with being able to be outside on hotter days?

I'm also not too keen on a pool, especially with young ones and no gates, but would enjoy a dip now and then - but it's not a big attraction to us.

From searching this forum, a lot of positive things have been said about CC, but seeing as CP is relatively new, would like to hear pros/cons of this area as well. Young family are the key words.

Thanks in advance for any guidance/advice.

Cheers.

If your children are near school age, consider the school system. CC is in CISD and Creekside is in a completely different school district. Also, not having a private pool is no big deal. All the neighborhoods have centrally located pools. As for trees, YES!!!!! Trees make all the difference in the world.

You're going to want those trees come summer. Get the CC house and just get a pool later or an above ground for the time being.

In Houston, you're going to want something more developed with mature looking trees. Not the twigs of a house 3-4 years old.
