River Oaks Neighborhood Guide

River Oaks rentals are located in one of the most affluent neighborhoods in Houston. Apartments in River Oaks lie near the Galleria, Downtown and the Upper Kirby area. River Oaks is known for its mansions sitting on huge tracts of land. In fact, it’s one of the wealthiest neighborhoods in the entire state of Texas. Homes here go for millions of dollars. Truthfully, there really aren’t that many River Oaks rentals available. The area is mainly a collection of large homes.

River Oaks features plenty of several parks, tennis courts, and playgrounds and boasts an extremely low crime rate. That’s good to know for those renters who always question just how safe cities and their outlying neighborhoods are.  Solicitors must actually acquire a permit from the city before engaging in any activity.   The River Oaks fire department is composed of volunteers with a staff numbering around 30.
