In its fall issue, Philanthropy Magazine featured Nancy and Rich Kinder, Buffalo Bayou Park’s $30 million catalyst funders, in an article focused on park philanthropy.
In October, Buffalo Bayou was named one of the nation’s “10 Great Public Spaces” by the American Planning Association. Read about the announcement press conference with Mayor Annise Parker in the Houston Chronicle and see a photo gallery in USA Today.
Thank you to the Houston Parks and Recreation Department Director, Joe Turner, for nominating Buffalo Bayou for this prestigious honor.
Also in October, Buffalo Bayou Partnership received the 2012 Civic Vision Award from AIA Houston. This award is presented to individuals or groups who have consistently and courageously demonstrated civic leadership in improving Houston’s quality of life through architecture, architecture education, landscape architecture, or urban planning. Thank you, AIA!
