Take Part in Bayou Greenway Day 2015

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.
