Neighborhood Spotlight: Oak Forest
Beneath the tall and towering trees of Oak Forest lies the third largest group of subdivisions in Harris County. It is located conveniently just north of the loop and east of 290. Oak Forest is home to people of all ages and has recently become a hot spot for growing families. It was voted one of the “Hottest 25 Neighborhoods” in Houston.
You can find massive new construction scattered throughout the charming 1950’s style ranch homes. Residents are zoned to top rated HISD schools, and the neighborhood also offers highly accredited private options as well. Candlelight Community Center and the local YMCA are great recreational choices for playgrounds, swimming, and other amenities. The Oak Forest Library is also worthy of a visit.
