Bayou Greenway Day 2019

On Saturday, April 6, 2019, Houston Parks Board will host the fifth annual Bayou Greenway Day along Brays Bayou Greenway at Mason Park!

On Bayou Greenway Day, Houstonians from all neighborhoods are invited to experience the transformation happening along their bayous as part of Bayou Greenways 2020, one of the most ambitious parks projects in the country that will transform our bayou system into 150 miles of linear parks and hike-and-bike trails. 
Bayou Greenway Day is a celebration – a free, family festival open to all. Bayou Greenway Day is a day to walk, bike, run, stroll, play and picnic along the Bayou Greenways and connect with new friends in Parks By You!
