​​​​HOUSTON - The newest park along Buffalo Bayou in Houston’s East End will open to the public on February 10.

The ten-acre green space, dubbed the Buffalo Bend Nature Park, is located at a former abandoned industrial site off Sgt. Macario Garcia Dr. near the Port of Houston's turning basin.

The transformed park now includes hike and bike trails, a bayou overlook shelter and interpretive signs, as well as three wetland ponds.

Development of the park was funded by a $500,000 grant from the Texas Parks & Wildlife and matching funds raised by Buffalo Bayou Partnership and Harris County Precinct 2. 

The property was acquired by a group of non-profit organizations, including Buffalo Bayou Partnership, in 2004. Once the deal was completed, the park was transferred to Harris County Precinct 2.

The Buffalo Bayou Partnership opened the Buffalo Bayou Park from Shepherd Dr. to Sabine St. last October.

The park features pavilions, a dog park, miles of trails and lush wildlife.
