Hello Neighbor!

Despite it being the third largest subdivision in Harris County, living in Oak Forest is remarkably pleasant and neighborly. Our many parks, schools, places of worship and ease of access to the rest of Houston make Oak Forest a great place. Where else can you walk to the park, the grocery store, your child’s school, your church, plus have access to Downtown or The Galleria in less than 10 minutes…and still have a huge yard?!

We encourage you to get out and about, know your neighbors and Oak Forest, become a part of our lovely community, and join us for our monthly discussions of all things Oak Forest.

Welcome to the neighborhood!

Thank you to our 2013 OFHA Membership Drive Sponsors for their gracious support

Oak Forest Running Group

January 7, 2014 in Events

Join us EVERY Tuesday at the Oak Forest Chill Neighborhood Icehouse at Oak Forest/Judiway to run, jog, walk and get to know some neighbors. Some people bring their kids in strollers. Others bring their dogs on leashes. Whatever you prefer. All are welcome!

How does this work?

Arrive a few minutes before 6:30 pm to sign in, take the short (~2 mile) or long (~4 mile) route, return to The Chill for some cold water (or beer!) and some hot pizza provided by Brother’s Pizzeria on North Shepherd. If you live in Oak Forest, we encourage you to join our Homeowners Association ($20/year). You may pay for your dues and pick up your vehicle decals as well. Two complimentary decals come with your payment.

After 10 registered runs/walks, you earn The Squirrel shirt.

Note that once days are shorter, the time will go back to 6 pm.
