Buffalo Bayou Park reviews
Great place to go and relax when in Houston. There are lots of walking trails and you can hire a bike if you prefer to cycle around. You get some great view of Downtown as well.

Nice and shaded trails for walking, really close to downtown! We parked in a free parking lot where you can keep your car up to 3 hours. There were plenty of parking spots available (late afternoon on a Tuesday). The pedestrian bridges are safe and well-maintained. Paths were clear of debris and saw many people out walking and running. Path under the bat bridge is really cool. Would return for more fresh air the next time I'm in Houston.
A wonderful park that is open to the public. Long paved trails. Only a little tree coverage, most areas are very open to full sun. There's volleyball pits, kids playground, and lots of open space for picnics. You can walk, or ride a bike. You can also see people cayaking down the bayou. Metered parking near the park. Wheelchair accessible, and pet friendly as well!!!
