WhAT we do:
Norhill Esplanade – This park serves as the gathering spot for our community for most special events, such as Lights in the Heights, National Night Out and July 4th. While the city owns this park, we cut and water the grass. During our Centennial Year 2007, a Brick Terrace was approved for the south end of the esplanade. We hope you will stop by and see it and consider buying a commemorative brick of your own. All proceeds go to WHCA to assist in our efforts to keep the neighborhood beautiful.

Watson Esplanade – The entrance to our neighborhood from I-10 is the first impression many visitors have of Woodland Heights. It is important that it stays clean and green! We have a wonderful group of volunteers from the neighborhood that have taken it upon themselves to help with that effort. They have chosen plants that are drought resistant (though there is a sprinkler) and easy to care for, yet a few that add color all year round and only need minor maintenance.
Yard of the Month – We are always looking for yards that reflect the individualism of our neighborhood. Many residents love their gardens and it is reflected in the fact that many maintain their own yards and gardens. If you have a friend or neighbor who is worthy of special recognition for the work they do to maintain their green space, we’d love to know about it. Please nominate them by contacting Brigette Larson, VP Beautification.
The Beautification Committee is charged with keeping our neighborhood clean and green, as well as working on projects that will improve this special corner of Houston for generations to come.
The Board is always talking about projects that we may want the neighborhood to tackle. If you have one that you would like discussed or a spot in our neighborhood that needs special attention, feel free to bring it to my attention.
Want to meet your neighbors by helping with beautification projects? Let us know.
