Binglewood is a neighborhood located within the Spring Branch area of Houston, Texas comprised of 741 single-family homes and consisting of six sections. We are situated south of I-10, west of Bingle Road between Hollister and Peppermill, and south of Clay Road, between Kempwood and Clay Road. James W. Lee Park (aka Binglewood Park), a City of Houston park, is located in the heart of the neighborhood.
We have an active volunteer Civic Club called, “Binglewood Civic Club, Inc.” which is a Texas non-profit property owners association. Our annual dues of $50 are voluntary as to Sections One through Five and mandatory as to Section Six. (Title companies should contact the Civic Club Treasurer at firstname.lastname@example.org for amounts due for property sales in the area.)
Our convenient location provides easy access to popular shopping venues, such as Memorial City Mall, CityCentre and The Galleria, as well as access to healthcare at the sprawling Memorial City Memorial Hermann Hospital campus on Gessner. Binglewood is located within the award-winning Spring Branch Independent School District, making our neighborhood a desirable location in which to raise a family.
Binglewood benefited from a 2019 City of Houston flood prevention drainage project in portions of Sections 2, 3, 4 and 5 in which new curbs and gutters were installed. Our neighborhood park, James W. Lee Park, was renovated as a part of the drainage project and boasts a brand-new playground, sheltered benches, a walking trail and pet waste stations throughout the park.
Please consider joining the Binglewood Civic Club by paying the annual dues. These donations and fees cover the costs incurred by the Civic Club throughout the year in maintaining our landscaping, signage, security, and website, as well as making other improvements suggested by our residents. Officers and directors are elected every year in December to serve one-year terms, and directors serve staggered three-year terms, with one director rolling off the Board each year. (See the “Organizational Documents” tab for more information.)
You do not need to be an officer or board member to make a difference in Binglewood! All Binglewood residents are encouraged to attend monthly member meetings (currently via Zoom) as well as monthly PIP meetings held by the Houston Police Department and Spring Branch Super Neighborhood meetings. You can also submit articles to our newsletter, Binglewords, report violations of the deed restrictions to keep our neighborhood looking good, and participate in volunteer projects to help your neighbors or benefit the neighborhood as a whole. (See “About Binglewood>Newsletters” for past copies of Binglewords.)
