Houston Parks Board 2019 Annual Luncheon

Chairs: Susie and Joe Dilg

This year’s luncheon will serve as the kickoff event for a year-long, city-wide celebration as we near completion of the Bayou Greenways project at the end of 2020. It will also showcase the project’s latest milestones, the exciting impact it is having on individuals and communities, and offer a preview of the phenomenal events in store for 2020.

Houston’s parks connect us to each other across communities. Parks also serve as spaces of joy and celebration where we are united by the common space under our feet. In 2020, these green spaces will bring us closer to our families and our neighbors, to the city we love and the things that matter most.

Registration and Networking: 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Luncheon: 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
