We took the pontoon boat tour along Buffalo Bayou and although it was a short ride, it was enjoyable. Be sure to reserve your spot online. We ended up at the wrong location, the directions brought us to the corporate offices. You check in where...More

We took a nice walk through this park following the devistation of the hurricane. We were there in January, and some of the damage was still visible, but most had been taken care of along the walkways. This is a beautiful area of the city,...More

Enjoy the super long trails, some of them should be cleaned. There is a possibility to rent a bicycle from Spotts park which is part from Buffalo Bayou, plus lots of sports activities. This park is better than Memorial.

The Buffalo Bayou park cannot be beat to get outdoors in the heart of Houston and enjoy nature via walking, biking, picnicking, etc.

This is a great place for a run, stroll, bike, or just a picnic. The redesign of the park is amazing! Though some may argue about the ecological effects of the design or even what happened to the countless homeless people that used the park...More

Lots of parking space. It's not so large so you can park at any of them. Also, call the Park staff and they can give you more details.
