Welcome to Lazybrook / Timbergrove

Originally settled by German farmers in the late 1800s, the area was the site of a major oil discovery in the 1930s known as “Eureka". Reminders of that distant past remain in a nearby railroad yard, still called the Eureka Yard, and one of the original churches, built by early settlers in 1891, St. John’s German Lutheran Church, that still exists, although it now resides in Downtown’s Sam Houston Park.
In the pre-freeway period after WW II, this area remained largely wooded and undeveloped while suburban growth was exploding in every other direction of Houston. However, by the 1950s, residential development finally emerged in the area beginning with Timbergrove Manor, followed by Lazybrook. Lazybrook was named for White Oak Bayou, which forms the neighborhood’s eastern boundary.
Today, the community primarily consists of mid-century, one-story ranch-style brick homes. Lazybrook is enjoying a renaissance as demand increases for close-in housing in Houston. Residents have seen a transition as original-owner, retired neighbors have moved out and young professionals have moved in. Lazybrook is served by HISD. The neighborhood elementary school is Sinclair Elementary, although a portion of Sinclair Elementary was named after Thomas Albert Sinclair, founder of the Heights Hospital. Middle schools that serve Lazybrook are Frank Black Middle School and Hamilton Middle School. Most area students are zoned to Waltrip HS.
The City of Houston operates parks within and around the Lazybrook. Parks in the area include:
  • West 11th Street Park
  • Timbergrove Manor Park
  • Jaycee Park
  • T.C. Jester Parkway
The West White Oak Bayou Trail begins in Timbergrove Manor and runs along the banks of the bayou, parallel to T. C. Jester Boulevard, from 11th Street, through Lazybrook and Oak Forest. The White Oak Bayou Trail provides bicyclists and pedestrians a 7.4-mile (11.9 km) long mostly concrete and asphalt trail. Passing through several parks, the trail is lighted and includes protective railings in some areas.
