Buffalo Bayou Partnership issued a status on Buffalo Bayou Park – Buffalo Bayou Park was inundated with water that rose 38.78 ft. at the Shepherd Drive Bridge. The upper portions of the 160-acre park survived remarkably well with only small amounts of debris, and very little damage to the perennial gardens, trees, and prairie and wildflower areas. Trails at these higher elevations are open and we are pleased that so many people are getting out to walk and run. We are extremely fortunate that the Lost Lake and Wortham Insurance Visitor Centers did not take on water. Both facilities are open and the Kitchen at The Dunlavy is operating with normal hours. Food trucks also are back in the entry court at Sabine Street from Thursday-Sunday. Bayou City Adventures has suspended all canoe/kayak rentals for the remainder of the year, and Bike Barn is not operating until further notice. The park should be ready for cleanup and use very soon.
Bayou City Adventures offers kayak rentals for only $5 per person. For more information visit ...read more
