THE HEARTBEAT O F HO USTO N BEGINS WITH THE BAYO U. Long before the shining rise of Houston and Texas, natural springs and tributaries flowed through Buffalo Bayou on the way to the Gulf. The 53-mile, meandering waterway gave 19th-century settlers direction—a water focus, and a link to the original commercial docks of Houston. Today, the bayou buzzes with new Houston energy. Waterside trails provide a natural getaway, recreation space, and outdoor venue for art and music—right in the heart of the nation’s fourth-largest city. The prized recreational and natural spaces of Buffalo Bayou Park and Memorial Park get better and greener every season.
