A New Way to Explore Houston's Bayou Greenways

Back in 1912, an imaginative urban planner named Arthur Comey laid out a master plan for Houston that was based around continuous greenspace along the city’s bayous that would connect all our parks along the major bayous. Comey reasoned that “the backbone of a park system for Houston will naturally be its bayou or creek valleys, which readily lend themselves to parks and cannot so advantageously be used for any other purpose.” It took some time for Comey’s brilliant vision to begin to come to life though. 100 years in fact. It wasn’t until November 2012 that Comey’s master plan started to be put in place. That’s when Houston voted to approve a major bond referendum for the city’s parks that would set $100 million aside for Bayou Greenways 2020.
