Center Point traces its roots back to 1816 when the first land grant was awarded to the Reed family. Real growth began in 1957, when a sustainable water supply was developed, and it officially became a city in 2002. Now its proud population of 16,864 residents, per the U.S. Census Bureau's 2013 estimate, can boast about projects like the 10-acre Reed-Harvey Park and historic homes preservation, a high quality of life and a strategic location giving it enormous opportunities for future growth.

Get Fit in the Great Outdoors! A trail park along Five Mile Creek gives residents in the Barrington Circle neighborhood easy access to the water where large stepping stones make crossing easy. Across the creek is a half-mile graveled path. More outdoor fun is found at the 18-acre Reed Harvey Park with its three lakes and walking trails.
Enjoy the Community Spirit! The Center Point Women's Preservation Fall Festival is held annually at Reed Harvey Park. Benefit the community twice over by attending because the funds raised by the festival support the historic Philips-Patterson-Taylor historical home as a wedding house.
Rent an estate property! Over half of the city's homeowners have been in the same house for five years or more, but there is also a strong rental market with 31 percent of properties renter-occupied. Neighborhoods like Lakewood and Sun Valley have mostly single family residences so are great locations to find deals on rent to own homes.
Plenty of activities! Ruffner Mountain Nature Preserve is 7 miles away and easy to reach. The award-winning urban nature preserve is free and worth visiting again and again. After a nice 12-mile hike, the food will taste great at Exotic Wings & Things. Locals also frequently enjoy Green Acres Cafe and Panda Chinese Food.
Great Rental Options! Rental homes are extremely affordable in neighborhoods like Holiday Park Estates and Bridlewood Forest Estates. Three-bedroom homes are the most common houses for rent so renters get a lot of space for their buck. In fact, 80 percent of the homes in Bridlewood Forest Estates and over 76 percent of the homes in Holiday Park Estates have three to four bedrooms.
Hang Out with Friends! There are plenty of places to hang out with friends. The Center Point Farmer's Market offers deliciously fresh vegetables and fruits. In April, join family and friends at the Center Point Festival of the Springs and welcome the end of winter with open arms and great food.
