  • My wife and I live just a handful of miles away from the park and it's been really great to see how far the city's investment into this park has taken it. Serene walking trails, extensive biking trail...  more »

  • So great to have these trails so close to the city. My husband and I really enjoy biking on the trails and sometimes walking. You can walk all the way into downtown, grab a bite to eat and walk back. ...  more »

  • This is a nice park in Houston (including all the way over to Elenor Tinsley park) for walking and running. Not as crowded as some of the smaller parks, plus there are some great places for photos!
  • Nice jogging and biking trail in the heart of Houston. The trail hugs Buffalo Bayou so you get to see a lot of nice natural beauty with amazing views of the downtown skyline. Also do not miss the bats that fly out of the waugh street bridge at dusk every night. It is one of the largest urban bat colonies and unlike the Austin one it is active year round.
  • Great place to walk, bike, or play with the kids. Love the hidden nooks, fountains and artwork all around. Beautiful place to enjoy while in then city.
  • Love me some of the new and improved BBP. Great place to bring the kinds on a nice weather day.
  • A lot of the park has been recently reconstructed. Lots of running trails, a huge dog park, they even have kayak rentals near the Dunlavey now. Great for a run or afternoon stroll!
