Besides the hometown atmosphere of the neighborhood, residents are also drawn to the area by its outstanding schools, convenient locale, and the excellent amenities the Memorial area provides.
Nestled along the wooded terrain of the winding Buffalo Bayou south of Memorial and east of Dairy Ashford, Nottingham Forest is home to approximately 630 families. Memorial, Westheimer and I-10 are nearby major east-west arteries, and Beltway 8 is just minutes away
Nottingham Forest is home to one of the finest neighborhood clubs in West Houston. Its picturesque grounds, covering approximately ten acres, host swimming pools, basketball courts, tennis courts, and a clubhouse.

For golfers, Lakeside Country Club is nearby, as are the excellent public courses in Memorial or Bear Creek Parks.
The high test scores and outstanding reputation of the neighborhood schools, part of the Spring Branch Independent School District, draw many families to the area.
