PROJECT DESCRIPTION AND HISTORY
Pasadena Economic Development Corporation has initiated a planning study to investigate a hike and bike trail along Vince Bayou from Memorial Park to Strawberry Park. A future greenway trail along Vince Bayou in Pasadena has been identified in multiple plans and studies, including the recently completed Pasadena Healthy Parks Plan and the Pasadena Livable Centers Study.
An approximately 3-mile trail along Vince Bayou would create safe pedestrian and bicyclist connections between parks, homes, schools and businesses in the area. It would also build on the existing Strawberry Trail, a 3-mile concrete trail that runs along Vince Bayou from Strawberry Park south to Burke Crenshaw Park.
The City of Pasadena, particularly the Planning and Parks and Recreation Departments, are partners in the study as the trail will increase safe access to parks. The Parks and Recreation Department maintains the existing Strawberry Trail and is expected to maintain this Vince Bayou Greenway as well. Houston Parks Board is serving as the project manager.
Trails are known to bring safety, connectivity, health, and economic benefits to an area. As such, Pasadena Economic Development Corporation is excited to provide funding and support to this important project.
