The developers at Hillwood Communities selected the land for Union Park based on several important factors, including its size and location. In 2013, we acquired 757 acres of agricultural property (likely former hayfields) from the Rudman Family. A portion of this land was preserved, and improved, and has now become the heart of the Union Park community: a 30-acre Central Park for generations of residents to enjoy.
In 2016, we purchased additional tracts of land, including Lyndhurst, McCutchin, and Wood/Weatherly. These acquisitions brought the total acreage for Union Park to 1,086 acres, with 3,341 lots planned for eventual release when all phases of development are complete. To serve the community’s residents, 80 acres of the property are designated for commercial use and 12 acres have been set aside for three on-site schools.
With these acquisitions, the stage was set for the creation of a vibrant, modern, thriving new home community. After careful consideration of available resources, Union Park was set up as a Municipal Management District (MMD), which benefits both homeowners and the community as a whole. An MMD has a board of directors that oversees the management of the district, and provides for the financing of improvements such as parks, infrastructure, and public facilities. This ensures that the community remains well-maintained and attractive to new residents, making it a desirable place to live.
