EL LAGO, TEXAS. El Lago is on Taylor Lake, Clear Lake, and NASA Parkway (also called NASA Road 1 and Farm Road 528) in southeastern Harris County. The community was started in the 1950s, incorporated in 1961, and grew from a population of 750 in 1967 to 3,550 by 1975, as workers were drawn to the nearby Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center. The population declined thereafter, falling to 3,269 in 1990; 3,075 in 2000; and 2,706 in 2010.
