Braeburn is a suburban, residential neighborhood located in southwest Houston, Texas. Although this middle-class neighborhood is primarily residential, there are several main roads running through the neighborhood that have restaurants, shops, motels, grocers, and other services available to reach on foot. 


If you enjoy walking your dog on a daily basis, you will find the climate in Braeburn to be hospitable to pedestrians and their pups most of the year. Summers, however, can be extremely hot and very humid. You will want to avoid walking in the middle of the day when temperatures peak. Summer often brings thunderstorms later in the day, some severe, with tornadoes even possible. Always check local forecasts for storm warnings and postpone outings until thunderstorms have passed. Winters are relatively mild, although the cooler weather may require a light jacket. Houston is subject to hurricane season, however, hurricane warnings are generally provided well in advance and many years are hurricane free.

This peaceful middle-class neighborhood encompasses several subdivisions and has flat terrain and sidewalks with grassy berms separating pedestrians from streets. The terrain makes travel stress free and streets are easy to stroll without effort. Most of the neighborhood is comprised of single-family homes although some apartment complexes and condominiums are also located here. Many single-family homes are mid-century modern with sprawling properties, lots of room between houses, lawns that stretch out around residences, and lots of large trees and landscaping. Some areas have smaller homes that are set closer together, but there is still lots of landscaping and tree-lined streets that give most Braeburn residential areas a park-like feel. 


The Brays Bayou runs along the south border and provides a greenway along with several area parks. The Southwest Expressway runs along the west border while a large country club and golf course sit on the west end.Several neighborhood schools provide landscaped areas in the community.

Area parks like Braeburn Glen Park, Bonham Family Nature Park, Stein Family Park, and Don Greene Nature Park provide beautiful green spaces in the community with open spaces, shade trees, and pedestrian paths.
