This park is a great place for a walk, run, or bike ride. I took a walk here and really enjoyed the views of downtown. There are nice spots to sit and rest as well.

This is a pure work of nature. The trail winds hither and yon across bridges. It’s quite amazing the trees provide much needed shade on those hot days. The park is maintained with the utmost care. I love the hear the water as it clashes against the artificial waterfalls. Located in the heart of downtown Houston, the trail runs quite extensively throughout. When I visited and exited Buffalo Bayou, I felt a loss as I continued my journey. It is a great beauty. There are runners, bikers and walkers. People also gather here for outdoor activities.
Great place to hang out, lots of trails. If you see a white van/bus rent some scoots. It was so worth the money specially if you go around 8pm, when it’s cool weather. It will get a little crowded with people but once you get on a trail it’s not that bad. Will most definitely be back!
