After the busy summer festival season, Buffalo Bayou Partnership is beginning construction in Eleanor Tinsley Park that will improve the overall visitor experience.

The changes in the area between Taft Street and Sabine Street will include upgraded infrastructure for special events at the park, trails and stairs for easier pedestrian access, as well as upgraded landscaping.
BBP has received a generous gift of $2 million from Silver Eagle Distributors, a Houston-based company with a longtime commitment as a community partner and generous supporter of citywide festivals along Buffalo Bayou. With this funding, changes such as a Skyline Overlook, redesigned parking spaces and an improved garden area will be added. In honor of this gift, the Skyline Overlook will be named the Nau Family Pavilion and the event meadow will be named the Bud Light Amphitheater. Read or listen to this KUHF story.
