  • I use to enjoy driving by or walking along the trails, admiring the sculpture, enjoying the water flow, now the trash, silt, toilet paper residue, etc. has caused it to be avoided. Repair will take at...  more »

  • Wonderful, natural foot paths for individuals to walk, talk, and run. So close to the city and jet no feeling of a bustling city. Sad to see the devastation caused by flooding, how you all braved and ...  more »

  • LOVE LOVE LOVE Buffalo bayou park!! It’s a great place to exercise, people watch, have a picnic, a cute date, snow cone! There’s so many great things to do. We typically rent bikes for $5/hr when we go. The trail is challenging yet appropriate for all levels in my opinion. There’s a bat cave you can watch the bats fly away at sunset. There are several foundations and other sculptures which are really nice backdrops for photos. Every time i go i see prom pics, graduation pics, or cute couples pics being taken. This is a gym in Houston and i love it.
  • Beautiful! We used to live near here and we would take our dogs for walks. The giant fountain is awesome, but it isn't always on. Regardless though it's a great place to go for a nice walk along the trails and enjoy a beautiful day. Sometimes we would take our bikes as well. There are always people on the trails.
  • Stopped here for brunch on a quick trip to Houston. Beautiful environment, tasty restaurant, and highly recommended. The park is great too!
  • Nice walk but the damages of the flood have not been repaired. No place to sit for a coffee. The nearest is the Whole Food Market 5 minutes walking away but main roads must be crossed.
  • I love walking this area while "putting one in the air" and taking in the beautiful scenery and surrounding upscale neighborhoods. Great landscaping despite some Hurricane Harvey damage.

Where to stay in Houston

If you come to Houston to splurge while on holiday, book a luxurious room at a downtown hotel. This area is an ideal base for getting to know Houston, offering you a chance to stay within walking distance of one of the country's largest theater districts. Houston bills itself as the "Energy Capital of the World," so it's no surprise that it houses many "green" hotels, their garages designed to cater to electric vehicle owners. For something completely different, enjoy a Texas country experience at a working ranch outside the city limits.
