Project History Hunting Bayou
On July 24, 2018, Houston Parks Board—along with Houston Parks and Recreation Department, Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), Harris County Precinct One, and Harris County Flood Control District—celebrated the opening of a new 1-mile segment of Hunting Bayou Greenway. The new segment is from Falls Street to Pickfair Street. Along this new trail is a new pocket park at the intersection of Pardee and Leffingwell, which serves as a gateway to the Kashmere Gardens neighborhood. Houston Parks Board thanks TxDOT for funding this project.
In July 2019, construction finished on a new portion of Hunting Bayou Greenway from Falls Street to Cavalcade Street (Mickey Leland Memorial Park). At a half-mile long, the greenway connect into the trail that leads to Pickfair Street. It included the replacement of the existing asphalt trail with a new 10-foot wide concrete trail as well as a new hike-and-bike pedestrian bridge.
A future phase of the Hunting Bayou Greenway will pick up at Pickfair Street and continue through Hutcheson Park to a future Kelly Street Bikeway.

At this time, no Bayou Greenway projects are under construction along Hunting Bayou. Please continue to check back for future updates.
