Stretching from Shepherd to Sabine, Buffalo Bayou Park offers 160 acres of picturesque scenery and skyline views. Visit the urban green space and you’ll discover hike and bike trails winding along the bayou; thought-provoking art installations hidden throughout; performance and outdoor activity…
Good view of Houston skyline and scenic way to walk/run/cycle from Lower Heights to Downtown.
I could go on & on. It is definitely a MUST-DO. city bikes, dog park, skate park, walking/ running trails, bike trails, beautiful pedestrian bridges with views, water works, Waugh bridge bat colony, etc
Ready for a walk in the park! Talk a stroll in the park and enjoy the great views of the city skyline.
City view as you walk along the bayou; exercise stations, bench, sculptures, etc along the way
One of my favorite. This park is the beating heart of the city's main artery. It provides great recreational opportunities so close to town. You can explore the park water in a kayak, take a walk in Kinder Footpaths, or ride bikes on Sandy Reed Memorial trail.
Stretching from Shepherd to Sabine between Allen Parkway and Memorial, Buffalo Bayou Park is the Crown Jewel of Houston’s greenspaces.
You can explore the water in a kayak or on a pontoon boat, walk the Kinder Footpaths, take kids to the Barbara Fish Daniel Nature Play Area, and ride bikes on the Sandy Reed Memorial Trail.
