Master Planned Community of Grand Lakes in Katy, TX

The master-planned community of Grand Lakes in Katy, TX

Living in a master-planned community is the dream – it has space, security, and amenities. The Grand Lakes community in Texas provides all of these benefits, and more. Located in the Greater Katy suburb west of Houston, this upscale neighborhood occupies 1,200 acres dotted with over 2,700 gorgeously constructed homes. It is managed by a homeowner’s association (HOA) dedicated to the upkeep and quality of life in the community.

Situated along main roads and freeways, South of I-10, Grand Lakes allows easy access to neighboring districts and establishments. The nearby roads are S. Peek Road, S. Fry Road, Grand Parkway (SH 99), and Westpark Tollway.


Grand Lakes is divided into four phases. Phases one, two, and three lie along the east side of Grand Parkway (SH 99) while phase four is to the west of SH 99. Every phase boasts many culs-de-sacs and beautifully landscaped parks. There is also a variety of amenities the active community of Grand Lakes enjoys.


Grand Lakes has every amenity imaginable — from full-sized tennis courts to the community’s 27 manmade lakes. Scattered throughout all four phases, these lakes provide homeowners with a sense of peace and relaxation, along with gorgeous views. Catch and release fishing is allowed for the lakes stocked with fish.

Homeowners can get their daily dose of exercise by practicing their golf swing at the putting green, serving an ace at the full-sized tennis courts, or swimming laps at the community swimming pools. For a more laidback workout, residents can take a leisurely stroll through the numerous hike-and-bike trails circling the lakes.

The neighborhood also has parks for every purpose: a dog park for furry friends, a splash pad and spray park for tots who want to play in the water, and multiple playgrounds for kids to run around in. Grand Lakes also has a community garden for avid hobbyists. There are over 200 acres of park land and vast amounts of green spaces for every occasion.


Grand Lakes is part of the Katy Independent School District (KISD), a top-quality suburban school district with the highest possible rating from the Texas Education Agency. Some of the excellent schools that belong in this district are the Roosevelt Alexander Elementary School or Michael L. Griffin Elementary School, Beckendorff Junior High School, and Seven Lakes High School. For more information on the Katy Independent School District, check out their website here.

There are also great private schools nearby such as Cinco Ranch Montessori School, Faith West Academy, Primrose School of Cinco Ranch, The British Private Prep School, and Westlake Preparatory Lutheran Academy.


All of the houses in Grand Lakes are single-family homes with either 1 story or 2 stories. These homes can be bungalows or traditional homes featuring 2 to 6 bedrooms, 1 to 6 bathrooms, and 1- to 2-car garages. Home sizes fall between 1,500 to 6,000 square feet.

Homes come in Traditional, Colonial, and Ranch-style design. Since the community boasts 27 manmade lakes, most homes offer views of calm waters.
