Houston Parks Board

Parks Make Houston Whole

We are mapping out a plan to create more outdoor spaces for everyone. Through Bayou Greenways 2020, 150 miles of trails, and 3,000 acres of green space will be available to Houstonians, bringing us closer to each other. To that family picnic. To that first and last mile. To what matters most. That’s why Houston Parks Board is sharing the experiences of real Houstonians and is ready to share yours, too. We hope millions of people will voice what they love most about their parks, sharing stories that will encourage others to join in on what we’re creating together.

Let’s get closer.
