  • This park is a great place for a walk, run, or bike ride. I took a walk here and really enjoyed the views of downtown. There are nice spots to sit and rest as well.

  • A nice chance for a stroll! Walking the whole length of the park doesn’t feel too bad, but you can just walk some of it if that’s more your thing.

  • After Harvey, the landscaping at Buffalo Bayou Park was almost completely knocked out. Everything was covered in silt and the experience was not pleasant. Fortunately, they've completely restored and improved the entire park with more improvements to come. A lot of space to relax or walk around, many different routes to choose from, multiple places to park, the best dog park in the city, and very well maintained, I can't recommend coming here enough.
  • Great place to hang out, lots of trails. If you see a white van/bus rent some scoots. It was so worth the money specially if you go around 8pm, when it’s cool weather. It will get a little crowded with people but once you get on a trail it’s not that bad. Will most definitely be back!
