River Oaks was founded in 1924, and over 1600 families reside there today. In 1998, the River Oaks Property Owners adopted from the City of Houston all of the esplanades, islands, and parks in the neighborhood. These integral green spaces are daily reminders of the original vision of the founders.
Building upon this new stewardship role, the River Oaks Foundation was formed in 1999 as a non-profit corporation for the purpose of raising funds for the beautification and preservation of the hallmark green spaces and common areas of River Oaks.
The goal of the Foundation is to assure that River Oaks continues to be an oasis of beauty within Houston.
The neighborhood will continue to flourish for years to come with a little bit of our help. Our board of directors works to improve and maintain the area with fundraising efforts and special projects, such as the Boulevard Project.
