Take Part in Bayou Greenway Day 2015

The first annual Bayou Greenway Day is almost here!

Bayou Greenway Day 2015

Saturday, April 4, 2015
10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

On Bayou Greenway Day, Houstonians are invited to experience the transformation happening along the city’s bayous as a result of the Bayou Greenways 2020 project. It will be a great opportunity to explore the many ways you can use the Bayou Greenways and make them your own!

Location

This free, day-long event will offer families the chance to walk, bike, run, stroll, play, and paddle between park sites along Brays Bayou Greenway – the star of this year’s event.

Four “hubs” – Fonde Park (5500 Carrolton), Gragg Park (2999 South Wayside), Spurlock Park (6700 Park Lane), and Mason Park (541 South 75th St) – will feature an array of fun activities for all ages in festival-like atmosphere.
