Young, married couples and families of many sizes make up most of the Friendswood population. Stretched over 20 miles, home values are generally very high when compared to Texas as a whole, but still remain lower than other expensive areas in the country. Residents have quite the choice when it comes to taking a walk in the lush greenery of the city. Parks and nature trails are abundant pastimes after an efficient day at work in the business areas. For those that enjoy a round or two of golf, Friendswood offers amateur and professional golfers alike a try at the Timber Creek Golf Club, a championship course.
