Family housing at Fort Leonard Wood has been privatized to provide family-friendly neighborhoods for service members assigned to Fort Leonard Wood. The partnership began in 2005 with more than 500 renovated homes, three community centers and several new playgrounds.
Neighborhoods designated primarily for enlisted families are Woodlands, Eagle Point and North Stonegate. Piney Hills is currently a neighborhood designated for officers and senior enlisted personnel.
New homes include single-family and duplex units with three or four bedrooms. Amenities include two full baths, two-car garages, bulk storage space and a mud room with a utility sink.
The Community Center at 235 Ellis St. has a splash park, Wi-Fi internet, exercise equipment, a Stay and Play Room for kids, multipurpose conference rooms and much more.
The Piney Estates Neighborhood Center also includes a splash park, and the Woodlands Neighborhood Center includes many of the same amenities. Waiting times for housing assignments vary.
