Southside Place is located southwest of Houston and minutes away from the city’s downtown and Galleria area. Southside Place is a residential and commercial area, with all of its residential streets alphabetized. Its boundaries run north to University and south to Grammercy, then east from Edloe, west to the 4200 block of Bellaire with Auden as the west edge of the alphabetized streets, with a Fire Truck Park, clubhouse, pool, and softball field in the middle. Southside Place with only 410 homes and 1,726 residents, has to keep its small town, family oriented atmosphere even when some of the surrounding areas have gone “big city.” Southside Place has its own mayor, city manager, council members, a police chief, a Police Department, and a volunteer fire department. Students attend the highly acclaimed HISD.
