The gently flowing Buffalo Bayou river is Houston’s main waterway. But it also plays another important role: along the Bayou runs a promenade connecting the city’s theatre district with Buffalo Bayou Park. At the end of the last decade, the boulevard was thoroughly renovated.
The Buffalo Bayou Promenade is a 2-kilometre-long green carpet that runs to and from the city centre. After the renovation, Houston in fact gained a 9-hectare park. The brand-new Sabine to Bagby Waterfront Park, which is part of this corridor, boasts numerous walking and biking trails. Everything is beautifully illuminated and a variety of artwork decorates the many trails. There is certainly nothing boring about a walk in this park!
