From the AtHomeNet.com Gazette Newsletter --
Garden Villas was established around 1926 on 876 acres, and is now home to approximately 1100 residences. Most of the homes were built in the 1930s and 1940s and construction was complete by the end of the 1950s. The streets are lined with over 6,000 pecan trees that were planted early in the development of the neighborhood. During their growing season, the trees form a lovely canopy, shading the streets of the community and creating a cozy feeling that could make anyone feel at home.
Garden Villas accommodates active residents with 3 parks inside the neighborhood providing space to exercise, relax, or gather for events such as National Night Outs and the annual Christmas celebration. The community association has a garden club and sponsors a Boy Scout Troop, encouraging further involvement in the community. Convenient to Hobby Airport, Reliant Arena and NASA, the area also offers plenty of activities outside of the neighborhood.
Garden Villas is not only home to its human residents, but welcomes the furred and feathered sort as well. Two large families of peacocks roam the streets making the community their home and mingling with the cats, dogs, and raccoons. Another testament to the community's animal-friendly atmosphere was the bald eagle that moved in to feed on the fish of nearby Sims Bayou last year! 'This community has a lot of character!'
