is one of Houston's premier inner city neighborhoods, noted for its
beauty and grace. Located near Rice University, approximately four
miles southwest of Downtown, its boundaries are the Southwest Freeway
to the north, Morningside to the west, Bissonnet to the south, and
Graustark/Parkway to the east (plus the 5300 blocks of Cherokee and
Mandell, the 1700 blocks of Albans, Wroxton, Bolsover and Rice Blvd.,
and properties facing Ashby). There are more than 1,200 residences,
together with some 30 small businesses along Bissonnet and Sunset. See Map. A wide
variety of housing is found in the neighborhood ranging from old
mansions to bungalows, and a small section of ranch-style homes built
after World War II, though many have been recently replaced by larger
two-story homes. The advantages of Boulevard Oaks can be summed up
under three headings: location, beauty, and neighborhood culture.

Tired of being stuck home
and desperate to have your kids go outside and play? Take your
family for a bicycle ride! It’s a fun, safe, and healthy way to
spend time outside while observing Houston’s stay-at-home order. Check out the handy Boulevard Oaks bike map
and explore your neighborhood on bike!
Luckily, our neighborhood streets are pretty much all bike-friendly and
pleasant to ride on. If you wish to get a little further
out, Hermann Park is an easy bike ride away. For even longer
rides, Buffalo Bayou Park has excellent bike trails. You can reach
either destination using the suggested routes in the map we have
provided. Just remember, parks are currently closed, so a ride on
our mostly empty local street is a great alternative.
Don’t forget to keep social distancing precautions while you
ride. Avoid riding in large groups. If you ride bikes not
belonging to you or family members living with you, wash your hands
before and after, and use disinfecting wipes. For more safe riding tips
and suggestions for popular bike circuits in Houston visit www.BikeHouston.org.
