With a rich history and renowned reputation, River Oaks is a model community of gracious, lavish living. Established in the 1920s, the neighborhood became a well-publicized national model for community planning and has long attracted Houston’s prosperous and socially prominent.
Now spanning 1,100 acres, the River Oaks community features elegant parks and esplanades with dramatic old-growth oak trees, shrubs, and blooming springtime azaleas. Leafy avenues meaner among impeccably maintained estates, giving the neighborhood its characteristic feeling of peaceful exclusivity. Despite the ideal central location, River Oaks feels wholly secluded from the nearby big-city hustle while still providing access to world class restaurants and high-end shopping.
