The Ponderosa Forest Civic Association Welcomes You To Ponderosa Forest!
History and Design
Ponderosa Forest is a deed-restricted, master planned community developed in the late 1960s through the 1980s in multiple phases. It was built as one of the first subdivisions in the vicinity of FM 1960, pre-dating Olde Oaks and Greenwood Forest and sharing common master planning and architectural characteristics.
The subdivision is typically described as stable, established and upscale. Along with other neighborhoods featuring custom built homes in the vicinity, Ponderosa Forest is often referred to as the “River Oaks of North Houston.”
Ponderosa Forest is heavily wooded and well maintained. Houses are sited on generous lots with mature native pine and oak trees. During the initial stages of land development, substantial areas of native woodland forest were reserved. The majority of homes in Ponderosa were custom designed and well appointed. Architectural styles reflect predominant suburban vernaculars of the early to mid-1970s including Georgian Colonial, English Tudor, French Colonial and Contemporary.
