Buffalo bayou really give you access to different interesting places on the city. Very recommendable, nice walks, very relaxing looking at bayou, walkers, runners, cyclists, this point gives you the sense of nature and big city at same time

This park is at the north end of downtown near the Wortham Center. You can walk at street level or at bayou level. On the NW corner is a statue of President George W. Bush. Usually some birds in the bayou. A good area to run through on weekend mornings because there will be little traffic.

If you like places that give you a glimpse into a previous time, this park is it. Even tho' it is placed in the center of the Houston hubbub, it gives that glimpse into early Texas. Charming houses/buildings from previous centuries moved to this space surrounded by the 21st century. Just go before the summer heat hits!
