Braeswood Place Houston Maps: Neighborhood

Braeswood Place is composed of the subdivisions Ayrshire, Braes Heights, Braes Oaks, Braes Manor, Braes Terrace, Emerald Forest, and Southern Oaks.

The neighborhood was established in the late 1940’s and a civic group, the Braeswood Place Homeowners Association was chartered in 1951.

Most of the homes in the area are 1950’s ranch-style homes. Many of these homes have been recently updated and expanded to support a larger living area, and higher foundations to protect against the possibility of flooding.

Karl Young Park, located at the corner of Stella Link and Tartan, is a beautiful park with a shaded playground, walking paths, and tennis courts.

Through the residents’ efforts, developers recently renovated Braeswood Place to provide additional drainage and irrigation systems, in addition to the benches and decorative enhancements added to the park. The development also included basketball courts, a baseball field, and a picnic pavilion.

Linkwood Park is located at the corner of Norris Drive and Ilona Lane. It is right across the Linkwood Community Center and offers a playground, tennis courts, sports fields, a youth game area, a basketball court, and a hike and bike trail.

Helen’s Park on Stella Link Road is a favorite among those who frequent the McGovern – Stella Link Public Library. With a meandering stream, bright flowers, and a beautiful mosaic fountain, a quick stroll in this park is a great stress-reliever.

The John P. McGovern Park on Underwood Street houses a premier stadium complex, a gymnasium, an outdoor pool, a weight room, and a senior services facility.

There are plenty of retail options within Braeswood Place, with the Braes Heights Shopping Center located just at the corner of Bellaire Boulevard and Stella Link. It was named the Best Strip Mall in Houston in 2012 and is home to many iconic restaurants and shops.
