Construction is Underway to Transform Buffalo Bayou

With the leadership of Houston’s Kinder Foundation as the project’s $30 million catalyst funder, Buffalo Bayou Partnership has joined with the City of Houston through the Houston Parks & Recreation Department and Harris County Flood Control District to transform the 160-acre Buffalo Bayou Park – Shepherd to Sabine.

Buffalo Bayou Partnership is committed to raising the remaining $23 million to complete the project. For the first 30 years after the park opens, Downtown Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone #3 will contribute $2 million per year for the park’s maintenance and operations. The comprehensive park enhancements began in July 2012. The overall project is scheduled for completion in mid-2015. To see the new Buffalo Bayou Partnership trail map, click here.
