Pecan Park is a pre-World War II single- family residential community located just south of Harrisburg. Its close proximity to the Port of Houston made it a popular location for workers in the Channel industries. The community is bounded by the Gulf Freeway on the southwest, Loop 610 on the southeast, and Griggs Road on the northwest. Commercial development has eroded the edges of the neighborhood along the freeways. In the southern part of the area, a large apartment complex originally built for adults only is now the home of hundreds of families with school-age children. The influx of young families in general prompted the construction of two new schools for this community.
