Houston Parks Board Parks by you Groundbreaking bayou Greenways 2020

Recommended Posts

We've been delivering projects for over 37 years for Houston, but today, we're inviting you to our first official groundbreaking for our signature project, Bayou Greenways 2020.

Can you celebrate our first groundbreaking with us?

About two months ago, we held a walking tour along White Oak Bayou where we strolled across an old burnt out bridge. But on October 2, we'll be celebrating the fact that this bridge will be demolished, and in its place will be another to eventually connect the current end of the White Oak Bayou trail at 11th Street all the way to the beginning of the MKT Hike and Bike trail near Durham Dr.

Join us at 4 p.m. and a host of folks that have all made this possible, including Mayor Annise Parker, Council Members Cohen and Gonzalez, Houston Parks and Recreation Department Director Joe Turner, the board of the Memorial-Heights Redevelopment Authority and TIRZ # 5, County Commissioner Jack Cagle, and most importantly, you!

Details are here, and please RSVP on our website. And since parking is limited, we hope you can run, walk, stroll or bike your way to the bridge!

We hope to see you there!

The Houston Parks Board team

P.S. Save the date for November 2 when we'll be doing a walking tour along Brays Bayou.

This video gives a really good overview of this project. They're talking about this project as redefining Houston.
