Post-Flood Update: Caution when Using Bayou Greenway Trails

Post-Flood Update:Caution when Using Bayou Greenway Trails
Our thoughts are with all of those impacted by Hurricane Harvey.

We are thankful to see flood waters and bayou levels beginning to recede. At this time, we strongly urge caution in use of the Bayou Greenway trails. The Houston Parks Board Maintenance team is assessing the trails as it is safe for us to do so. 

While some areas appear to be passable, we are finding the following: 

  • Sections of trails still covered by high water
  • Areas with fallen tree limbs
  • Areas with potentially dangerous debris
  • Slippery silt that obscures the trails making them temporarily unsafe to use

While we are eager for our communities to regain use of the Bayou Greenways trails, the post-flood cleanup and full use of all bayou greenways will take us several weeks. As we assess areas and have updates, we will share them with you. We thank you for your patience.
