Ideally located with easy access to Beltway 8 and I-10, Briargrove Park is a serene family community in west Houston that offers easy access to the Energy Corridor and Galleria/Uptown area, in a quiet suburban setting.
The boundaries of Briargrove Park include Buffalo Bayou to the north, the Sam Houston Tollway to the west, Westheimer Road to the south and Briarpark Drive to the east. The community encompasses almost 1,500 residences. Home styles range from the original traditional, soft contemporary and ranch style 60s and 70s residences to new constructions; some townhome-style residences are also available.
Development of Briargrove Park began in 1963. Once on the western frontier of Houston, this community is now in the middle of it all, but still retains the quiet serenity the developers sought to create. The community is filled with large oaks and pine trees, giving the community a wooded, park-like feel. Briargrove Park has several long-standing and still-active community organizations including the Briargrove Park Women’s Club and the Briargrove Park Garden Club. While new constructions are beginning to occur with more frequency, an Architectural Control Committee oversees all new construction to ensure that the stylistic integrity of the neighborhood is preserved.
