East Houston is a collection of neighborhoods in the northeastern part of the city in the North Forest ISD. The name is taken from an old subdivision located just off what was then the highway to Beaumont; most of that old town site remains undeveloped. The community is made up largely of single family homes in standard suburban tract subdivisions. The area remains generally wooded, especially close to Halls Bayou, where a City of Houston golf course, Brock Park, is found. A major industrial park, Railwood, is located in the southeast corner of the community adjacent to a major land fill. One neighborhood, Verde Forest, is a recent addition to the City, having been annexed in 1996.
