Overview of Fondren Southwest

Rent an apartment in Fondren Southwest Houston and you will be living in an historical area that was once the ranch property of Walter Fondren, an oilman. The area is also know as Greater Fondren Southwest. It was first developed in the 1970s when single family homes were built in the area. Gessner Road was a dirt road and the pavement on South Braeswood Boulevard ended at Fondren Road. People liked the idea that they were living in the country, but still part of the city.

But as Houston continued to grow, so did the development here. With the oil boom, many apartment complexes were added to the neighborhood. Fondren is part of the Southside area of Houston. Other nearby neighborhoods include Sharpstown and Westmoreland Farms.

After a period of decline in the 1980s and 1990s, two Houston city councilmen proposed a management district to help revitalize the area. In 2005, the Brays Oaks Management District was created. The district describes the area as "one of Houston's most accessible communities with a mixture of families, culture and commercial businesses" and that the neighborhood has "become a popular place to live as well as work."

There were three neighborhood parks in the Brays Oaks District, which grew to nine when the district expanded in 2011.

Most of the parks provide sports facilities, picnic areas, play structures, and trails for walking, hiking or biking.
