LOCATION: Oak Forest/Garden Oaks is located between Pinemont, Shepherd, the North Loop West and the Northwest Freeway (US 290).

COMMUNITY DESCRIPTON AND HISTORY: Just prior to WWII, Garden Oaks was laid out as a garden suburb with curvilinear streets and a full range of housing from cottages to mansions. Oak Forest was developed immediately after the war, and soon became the largest residential development in Houston at the time. Between the 1950s and the 1970s, Candlelight Estates, Shepherd Park and other surrounding subdivisions were developed. The area's thick pine trees and proximity to Loop 610 makes this community increasingly attractive to homebuyers. This community is deed-restricted and served by Houston ISD.
