Mature magnolia and oak trees line the streets of Lindale Park, a small community-minded neighborhood in Houston’s Near Northside, just 10 minutes north of Downtown Houston. Founded in 1937, the area’s approximately 1,200 single-family homes have retained much of their original character thanks to enforced deed restrictions and an active civic association making this an attractive area for homebuyers wanting a cozy bungalow with plenty of landscaping potential.

Getting around

Conveniently located just east of Interstate 45, west of Interstate 69, and along northern 610 Loop, Lindale Park residents enjoy easy
access to the city’s main arteries for quick commutes to anywhere in the Greater Houston area. Located just a few miles north of Downtown, this neighborhood also benefits from the METRORail Red
Line, which shuttles riders from the Lindale Park Station on Fulton Street to Downtown, Museum District, and Medical Center for both work and play.

Community Spirit

The neighborhood’s small-town vibe is enhanced by the closeknit community who manage the Lindale Park Civic Club, which
oversees educating homeowners about deed restrictions, initiating beautification projects, and organizing social events. Volunteers gather bimonthly for Saturday clean-ups and arborloving neighbors participate in tree planting events to increase shade along the shared boulevards. The quarterly neighborhood newsletter keeps residents apprised of events like the annual 4th of July parade featuring art cars and the winners of seasonal yard décor contests. Lindale Park is a top Houston neighborhood for trick-or-treating and holiday light tours thanks to the residents’ creative spirit. Civic club members can rent the organization’s Clubhouse at a discounted rate for birthday parties, baby showers, and family picnics.

Parks and Rec

Besides neighborhood walks, residents can rack up steps on the one-mile hike-and-bike trail around nearby Moody Park, home to Vaquero, the 16-foot vibrant blue fiberglass Mexican cowboy riding a bucking bronco. The park also features an outdoor pool, lighted tennis courts, covered basketball court, playground, pavilion, and community center offering after-school programs and fitness classes. Nearby parks also include Irvington Park and Montie Beach Park. The M.D. Anderson Family YMCA on Cavalcade Street offers a variety of membership options to access their facilities including a pool, gymnasium, and weight room as well as a calendar of classes ranging from aquatic aerobics to Zumba.

Food and Entertainment

Lindale Park’s dining scene is a mix of new casual spots alongside longtime staples. For decades Taqueria Laredo has been serving breakfast tacos on freshly made tortillas to the crowds that line out the door, while Gerardo’s has been a destination for some of the best barbacoa in the city since 1977. One of the latest additions to the neighborhood is the day-to night Canary Café. Stop by in the morning for coffee and breakfast sandwiches or share a pizza during happy hour. For an evening of patio drinks and food, choose between Monkey’s Tail and Trash Panda, which both offer decadent snacks and shareable plates plus inventive cocktail menus and taps pouring local brews. Live music fans will love living a few minutes away from White Oak Music Hall with concerts almost every night of the week from big name acts on the outdoor stage to up-and-coming bands playing the intimate upstairs venue.
