Halls Bayou Greenway
Halls Bayou begins in northwest Houston, flowing 17 miles southeast, before converging with Greens Bayou near Brock Park. Originally known as the “south fork of Greens Bayou,” it was renamed in the 1880s, apparently for Archibald S. Hall, who owned land along the bayou.
Through Bayou Greenways 2020, Houston Parks Board and its project partners are transforming Halls Bayou into Halls Bayou Greenway, a ribbon of green space and hike-and-bike trails connecting surrounding communities to parks, nature, and one another. Parks found along the way include Keith-Wiess Park, Mary Withers Park, Tidwell Park, Lake Forest Park and Brock Park. There's plenty to do and see along Halls Bayou Greenway.

Various wildlife call Halls Bayou home. Take a stroll along the bayou and you’ll likely spot turtles, toads, Great Blue Herons, Channel Catfish and even bats.
