From its very inception, Cinco Ranch has placed a high priority on community amenities and public spaces. From the renowned beach club (pictured at the top of this page), to parks, playgrounds, walking trails, resorts and competition swim centers, and splashpads to community centers, exercise facilities, tennis courts and fishing ponds – there is something for everyone to enjoy throughout the community.

And although it has been divided among two separate homeowners associations, residents of any part of Cinco Ranch are permitted access to all of the amenities throughout the entire community.

And don’t forget about the Golf Club at Cinco Ranch – located directly opposite the Beach Club. Open to the public seven days a week, the club serves as a remarkable focal point for social gatherings, league play, golf instruction and special events of all sizes and types – ranging from weddings and golf tournaments to corporate meetings, fundraising events and holiday parties.

And if clubs are your thing, there are an abundance of civic and community clubs located right within the neighborhood. From mens clubs and workout groups, to ladies bunco groups and the Women’s Club – there’s an organization for just about anyone in the family.

Property Taxes and HOA Dues

The property taxes in Cinco Ranch are assessed by either the Fort Bend Appraisal District or the Harris County Appraisal District depending on where you live. The total tax rate is comprised of several different taxing entities depending on which part of the community you live in. These will typically include the school district, the mud district, and county or city services but could even vary based on section.

As of the time of this writing (2022), the average property tax rate is 2.6245%. Because of the extreme differences in the age of homes in Cinco Ranch, as well as varying taxing entities, this rate could be lower or higher. The rates are applied to each $100 of a home’s value.

For example, a $400,000 home could expect to pay $10,498 / year in property taxes. ($400,000 / $100 = $4,000 x 2.6245 = $10,498. This of course does not tax into account homestead, over 65, and other tax exemptions. Read more about how property taxes work in our area.

As of the time of this writing, the annual HOA Dues for Cane Island are $1,150 / year. In the Katy area, for a master planned community, those are considered fairly average, particularly considering the sheer amount of amenities available to its residents.
