About the Project

OVERVIEW

Transformation of Buffalo Bayou Park, one of Houston’s most iconic spaces, is underway.

Likened to Houston’s own Central Park, the ambitious $58 million project will include:

  • restoration of natural landscapes, including trees and native grasses
  • new and upgraded trails for walkers and hikers to enjoy nature and the bayou
  • two pedestrian bridges—one near Jackson Hill Street and one at the Police Memorial
  • extension of the distinctive blue lunar cycle lighting
  • destination features including The Water Works adjacent to the Lee and Joe Jamail Skatepark, Lost Lake near Dunlavy and Allen Parkway, a dog park near  Allen Parkway, and enhancements to a portion of Eleanor Tinsley Park
  • additional benches, picnic spots and drinking fountains

See the Buffalo Bayou Park – Shepherd to Sabine Master Plan.

TRAILS

The City of Houston and TxDOT have rebuilt the 5-mile Sandy Reed Memorial trail.

Ten-foot wide concrete trails, on both sides of the bayou are complete and allow cyclists and joggers to share these multi-use trails. To accommodate trail users who want to enjoy a leisurely walk, Buffalo Bayou Partnership is building 5-foot wide asphalt footpaths that will be located closer to the bayou banks. New drinking fountains and benches will be conveniently located along the trails, and park users will have access to other amenities, including restrooms and a bike rental facility.

See the Buffalo Bayou Trail Guide.

BRIDGES

Pedestrian bridges have been constructed at the Police Memorial and at Jackson Hill to provide greater accessibility to Buffalo Bayou Park.

A 345-foot long pedestrian bridge near Jackson Hill Street was complete in late winter 2013 and soars a dramatic 40 feet above the bayou and connects with the existing bridge over Memorial Drive, providing access to Allen Parkway. A second pedestrian bridge at the Police Memorial was completed in early 2014 and allows park users, for the first time, to access the Police Memorial from other areas of the park. The Carruth Foundation donated $1 million for this naming opportunity. Both bridges will be similar in aesthetic to the Hobby Center Bridge and complement TxDOT’s Shepherd Bridge and the Rosemont Bridge. Smaller footbridges over several ravines and outfall tributaries are also located in the park.

CHANNEL RESTORATION

The Harris County Flood Control District restores the bayou’s channel conveyance capacity and banks along Buffalo Bayou Park.

Working in seven phases (between Shepherd Drive and Sabine Street), the $5 million project includes removing silt and re-grading the bayou’s slopes to reduce erosion. Gentle slopes will be created on the inside bends of the bayou and graded that can serve as launch areas for canoes and kayaks. Invasive vegetation species will be cleared to allow for the removal of sediment and promote a healthier native ecosystem. The project will enhance the bayou’s ability to maintain itself naturally while preserving existing high quality trees and reintroducing native trees and vegetation.

LANDSCAPING

Working in conjunction with the site’s topography and predicated on a strong maintenance plan, landscaping of the park’s entire 160 acres will restore diversity and balance to the terrain.

Under the leadership of SWA Group and Boston’s Reed Hilderbrand, and through a partnership with Katy Prairie Conservancy, Buffalo Bayou Buffalo Bayou Partnership will reintroduce native landscapes to restore diversity to the park’s riparian edge and in wetlands, rambles, woodlands, meadows, lawns and special perennial gardens. Approximately 50 percent of the landscape will be replaced with meadows to improve the habitat and reduce overall maintenance costs. The improvements to riparian corridors and wetland gardens will help control erosion while rambles will be restored for the more adventurous walker. The park’s topography will be emphasized by creating overlooks, as well as enhanced ravines and outfalls. At the most dramatic vista points, shelters will provide shade and seating. Improvements to riparian corridors and wetland gardens will help control erosion while rambles will be restored for the more adventurous walker. Shaded woodland areas will open up to “outdoor rooms” creating a rhythm of shade and light, cool and warm, quiet and more active spaces. Meadows will be beautified with wildflowers and native grasses, and a limited number of high-profile gardens composed of native perennials will accent key park destinations.

Major Destinations

  • Major Destinations

    Significant enhancements will be made to Eleanor Tinsley Park, Wortham Fountain and the “unofficial” dog park. Two new destinations—The Water Works and Lost Lake—will anchor the east and west ends of the park.

LIGHTING

With the downtown skyline as a backdrop, the lunar lighting cycle environmental art concept, already in place at Sabine Promenade, will become a major focal point extending to Shepherd Drive.

To make the bridges and architecture iconic features at night, the lighting along the major Sandy Reed Memorial Trail, will transition from white, to blue, to white as the moon waxes, wanes, and waxes again. Some footpaths and areas closer to the bayou will remain dark at night while certain special destinations will be lit for nighttime use.

ART

Buffalo Bayou Partnership has commissioned new pieces of art to become focal points for Buffalo Bayou Park.

The artists and pieces were selected by a committee led by the Houston Arts Alliance (HAA). These artworks will be installed toward the end of the park’s renovation. Stay tuned for more information as we unveil the names of the artists and their design concepts in the coming months.
