About Us

Central Green is a half-acre public park developed by Willow Fork Drainage District to serve as a central gathering space for Katy residents and visitors and is only a short drive from Houston' s Energy Corridor and West Houston. Free public programming, ranging from exercise classes and family events to outdoor concerts and movie nights, is planned year-round. The park is publicly owned and operated by Willow Fork Drainage District.

Design

Central Green was designed to provide a much needed community gathering space on the west side of Houston and to create a sense of unity between existing neighborhoods and local schools, linking the community to regional trail systems. Central Green was designed by the landscape architectural firm TBG Partners and officially opened to the public June 1, 2013.

Central Green is owned and managed by Willow Fork Drainage District. For more information on the District, please visit www.willowforkdrainagedistrict.com.
