Spring Real Estate Information
Ideally located just east of the I-45 interstate, Spring is just twenty miles north of downtown Houston and hosts a population in excess of 36,000 people. Covering an area of twenty-four square miles, Spring is actually one of the larger places in Northern Harris County. As one of the first suburban communities to be opened in the north Houston area, Spring’s formal growth began in the mid-1900s when Spring was home to only 700 Texans.
Spring’s recreational facilities provide exceptional opportunities for residents to exercise, gather, and enjoy the outdoors. The five-acre Southwell Park includes a community center, picnic pavilion, a lit basketball court, and two playgrounds. The larger Payer Park has four lit softball fields, seven baseball fields, and a gathering pavilion. During baseball and softball season, it is not uncommon to see tournaments every weekend. The largest area park is Pundt Park which is 380 acres in are and includes a canoe launch, meeting room, and playground.
Area properties are served by the Spring Independent School District that provides quality educational opportunities across a number of campuses. George E. Anderson Elementary School, Chet Burchett Elementary School, Pearl M. Hirscch Elementary School, Mildred I. Jenkins Elementary School, McNabb Elementary School, Northgate Crossing Elementary School, Salyers Elementary School, John A. Winship Elementary School, and Lewsi E.

Spring is just a few miles north of the George Bush Intercontinental Airport that serves the greater Houston area. The sprawling facility is a hub for the city’s home carrier, Continental Airlines. In fact, Continental alone operates hundreds of daily departures from the airport to destinations around the globe, including Tokyo, London, and Frankfurt as well as many cities closer to home within Texas and the southern United States. IAH, as it is known, is also a major gateway to Mexico and Central America, thanks to its close proximity to the region. Residents of Spring enjoy being able to reach the airport so quickly and take comfort in the relatively easy drive to it.
