Green Ridge North Community subdivision was built in 1966. It was built on a
piece of land that was nothing but grasslands. At the moment of its development
there were local schools in existence, Aldine High School and Stovall Junior
High. When the community was built the main entrance was on Hardwicke
Road. Around the corner from the entrance there were ﬁve model homes on
Chipman on display. The ﬁrst homes to be built were on Wellman and Kirkﬁeld.
Green Ridge North Community selling point was its Pool Center’s 154,000 gallon
swimming pool. The pool is still in great condition after a recent resurface
plastering endeavor. The pool center is now called the Aquatic Centre.
Green Ridge North Community originally was not part of the City of Houston
city’s limits. It was not until 1976 that it was annex into the city. The community
is home to 1189 homes. The subdivision is within reach of the Woodlands, Bush
Intercontinental Airport and not that far from downtown Houston. The growing
community has seen many changes. Recently, Greenspoint Management
Redevelopment Authority has instill a six million plus improvement street scape
into the surrounding community. The Green Ridge North Community Board of
Trustees has also started making the necessary improvements to the original
Hardwicke entrance. Thus, much more has to be done.
Today, Green Ridge North Community is home to many. Many of those, who join
in the endeavor of voting and passing a master plan for our community. This
master plan will serve as a guideline. Within this master plan the entrances will
be re-landscaped into their glory days, the Aquatic Centre will see some
improvements as well from landscaping, spray grounds, pavilions, new restrooms,
volleyball and basketball courts, a new Recreational Centre, a new West Road
Park, and a banner district (Main Square and Grand Avenue). Every community
has a story. And ours is still to be told.
