"Baker is the place to be at the western edge of Houston"

Baker Rd. is fairly small, only two lanes, and extends from a modest portion of subdivisions to Windsor Park Lakes, where basketball player Yao Ming has lived. The road dead-ends to the north at the I-10 feeder road, and snakes around into another upper-middle class neighborhood just past Windsor Park Lakes. But, the majority of Baker runs along side the gated community with a newly-built biking and running trail and park. The park is a great place to take a jog or walk with your kids and has many gazebos to cool off in. Trees have been planted, but they are still young. Baker is split in half by Kingsland road, which leads into Katy and 99. On the other side of Kingsland, Baker holds a US Post Office that accumulates as much traffic as any post office might. The subdivisions that branch off of Baker are nice, middle-class homes perfect for new families. The area is serene and quiet, with a duck pond that has been a favorite of children for years. Just watch the road if you're traveling down Baker... turtles and ducks have been known to run out in front of cars. There is plenty of shopping close by, health clubs down the road, 3 movie theaters within 5 minutes and a hospital down the road, with another going up on the other side of the freeway. This area is one of the most affordable areas in Houston, giving you maximum square footage per lot, peace and quiet, and development that is unprecedented and unheard of in any other part of the city.
