Super Neighborhood 70 - Pecan Park
Your super neighborhood at-a-glance:
Pecan Park is a pre-World War II single- family residential community located just south of Harrisburg. Its close proximity to the Port of Houston made it a popular loca - tion for workers in the Channel industries. The community is bounded by the Gulf Freeway on the southwest, Loop 610 on the southeast, and Griggs Road on the north - west. Commercial development has eroded the edges of the neighborhood along the freeways. In the southern part of the area, a large apartment complex originally built for adults only is now the home of hundreds of families with school-age children. The influx of young families in general prompted the construction of two new schools for this community.
