Buffalo Bayou Partnership’s geographic focus is the 10-mile stretch of Buffalo Bayou from Shepherd Drive to the Port of Houston Turning Basin. Over the organization’s 28-year history, the BBP board and staff have raised and leveraged more than $150 million in private and public funds for the bayou’s redevelopment and stewardship—spearheading award-winning projects such as Sabine Promenade and Sesquicentennial Park, protecting land for future parks, constructing hike and bike trails, and operating a comprehensive clean-up program.

Currently, BBP is leading the $58 million Buffalo Bayou Park project that includes major destinations, natural landscaping, footpaths, trail lighting, water features and pedestrian bridges. Construction is well underway, and the entire park will be complete in early summer 2015.

  • We have just moved close to this park and love to walk on the various trails. Its got such a lot of different areas to walk but also to sit and watch the world go buy. The art is amazing i like how they have structures with names, for example a large structure which spells listen by some mature trees. The police memorial is well worth closely looking at, so well designed. We have not hired bikes yet but will be as this is such a great idea and easy to get around. Fun watching people kayaking too. Also the dog park is fascinating, all the wonderful dogs meeting their fellow furry friends and having fun in their own specially designed place.
