WEEK OF THANKS

Thank you for celebrating with us!

Houston Parks Board believes in the restorative power of parks, trails, and time spent outdoors, and today that mission resonates more clearly than ever before. We are deeply grateful to all the donors, public sector partners, nonprofit partners, neighborhood groups, and – especially – the citizens of Houston.

SEE YOUR IMPACT

For more than 44 years, Houston Parks Board has developed new parkland and improved existing parks throughout the greater Houston region. By making the extraordinary vision of Bayou Greenways 2020 a reality, we are also creating a connected network of parks and trails that bring Houston’s bayous and its people together. Bayou Greenways 2020 is the region’s single largest investment in equitably distributed parkland.

Bayou Greenways 2020 is transforming Houston into a healthier and happier city. Thanks to the long-time support of public partners, community members, and donors, we’re making more than 3,000 acres of parkland and over 150 miles of trails available to current and future generations.

THREE AMAZING STORIES

Every story is a point of connection. A moment captured and a pathway between one person and so many others. Houston Parks Board is proud to showcase the experiences of individuals in neighborhoods across our city as a way of celebrating the way every one of us has made these parks our own. Because parks are for everyone.

THANK YOU HOUSTON

Houston Parks Board believes that all communities need parks. That's why our mission is to create, improve, protect, and advocate for parks for everyone. Parks play a critical part in the health, happiness, and economy of our city. But more than that, they're alive with possibilities for connection, growth, activity, and the imagination.

Thank you to everyone that makes our work possible.
