Country living in the City……Sandalwood









The residents of Sandalwood undertook a capital improvements campaign with voluntary contributions that raised funds to greatly improve the building, deck and seating areas (shown in the photo) of the swimming area of the third lake (aka Patti Lynn lake) several years ago. To accomplish this on a voluntary basis makes quite a statement of the passion Sandalwood residents have for their ‘hood.

Young or old, the lakes are enjoyed by all the residents…whether jumping off the rope swing, strolling by, feeding the turtles, catching fish, canoeing or just sitting on the bench.

The Secret of Sandalwood

Sandalwood is a west Houston neighborhood made up of approximately 170 homes and 3 lakes that are used for swimming, fishing, and canoeing.

The residents enjoy neighborhood events including the Sandalwood Snakes swim team, Labor Day Fishing tournament, Easter Egg Hunt, Santa at the Lake, and a Fourth of July Parade.  The ladies have a very active Garden Club which meets monthly and hosts a Holiday Party, Annual Beautification Day, and Friday evening happy hours.

Sandalwood children may attend Frostwood Elementary, Memorial Middle School, and Memorial High School.  Sandalwood is tucked away in Memorial between Memorial Drive and Buffalo Bayou.

And by the way, no, there were not Sandalwood trees in Sandalwood….local lore has it that the developers just liked the name!
