Take Part in Bayou Greenway Day 2015

The first annual Bayou Greenway Day is almost here!

Bayou Greenway Day 2015

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
