Welcome To River Oaks
River Oaks was slow to grow when first founded, but before the end of the 1920s, the new neighborhood was on the road to success. And it didn’t take long for other neighborhoods to spring up in its shadow.
In more modern times, these “satellite” neighborhoods — Avalon Place, Glendower Court, Royden Oaks, Oak Estates, Afton Oaks, and Highland Village — offer some of Houston’s most desirable places to live. These areas are renowned for beautiful heirloom trees, wide streets and vintage character.
Founded through the decades from the 1920s through the 1950s, these heavily deed-restricted subdivisions offer a mix of beautifully-renovated vintage Traditional and California Ranch-style homes and larger, recently-constructed homes by some of Houston’s finest builders and architects.
Heavily deed-restricted with active property owners’ associations, these neighborhoods are conscious of preserving their residential and architectural integrity and strictly enforce architectural controls to protect property values.
Nearby River Oaks Park, also known as “Pumpkin Park,” is famous for its playground, tennis courts, and civic building. The Briar Club is a private, full-service club with swimming and diving pools, multiple tennis courts,
workout facilities, fine dining, and more.
Houston Independent School District schools serve the area, as well as several private and parochial schools, including St. John’s School, River Oaks Baptist School and St. Anne’s Catholic School.
A neighborhood institution, the Adele B. Looscan Branch of the Houston Public Library has served several generations of area residents. Its small, 1950s-vintage building and campus were replaced and expanded in the early 2000s with the purchase of adjoining property and the construction of a larger, multi-story library building.
