Beyond the Bayous Hill at Sims

Beyond the BayousHill at Sims

Harris County Precinct One has initiated a planning study to transform the Hill at Sims, a 100-acre regional detention basin, into a public park. Houston Parks Board is leading the study on behalf of Precinct One. Harris County Flood Control District owns the basin and the adjacent 150-acre property along Scott Street. Together, these properties have the potential to form a new regional park within the Sunnyside/South Acres/Crestmont Park area of Houston.

The site is adjacent to Sims Bayou Greenway, which, on completion, will stretch nearly 20 miles from Blue Ridge County Park to Milby Park. It is also within walking distance of multiple schools, parks, churches, and homes.

Precinct One and Houston Parks Board received feedback on the draft planning study, which has now been finalized and can be found at the links below.
