New Green Space Coming to the Area

On Saturday, July 23, join Mayor Sylvester Turner, Council Member Brenda Stardig, of District A, and the Houston Parks Board in celebrating the demolition of the Oakbrook Apartments with free food, games and giveaways!

The complex at 5353 DeSoto Street has been vacant for years and sits directly along White Oak Bayou Greenway. After the buildings are demolished the property will be turned into open green space and meadows.

Great Turnout at the Fourth of July Celebration

We had a great turnout today for our annual July 4th parade.  Thank you all for making our events great.  I especially want to thank HFD Station 50 for leading our parade, walking with us, and giving the kids an opportunity to tour the fire truck.  In addition the mayor’s office sent 3 representatives to join in on the fun.  Thank you Mayor Turner for your support.
