Walked all over downtown Houston and didn't find any green areas. A few bare spaces with no buildings but nothing that looked like a park. Maybe because its January... I yearned for some relief from the non-stop buildings above and below-ground. Certainly not a pretty...More

Very nice place to walk around for a break time, with scenic views. Unfortunately for us we experienced there a cold and reiny day, but we appreciated evenly the place.

I have a dog, so really enjoy walking along the bayou with her. The paths are well tended and really nicely set out. Love the bridges and the sculptures too.

This is a beautiful park in downtown, a short walk from hotels and restaurants. There is a hike & bike path along the bayou that looked well used. The Buffalo Bayou Partnership has a pontoon boat tour which I went on and would highly recommend...More
