IMPORTANT NOTE: Buffalo Bayou Park’s grand opening has been postponed until fall 2015. Please check back for a specific date!
It’s spring and we are gearing up for the debut of Buffalo Bayou Park! Whether you walk, jog or bike the park or drive down Allen Parkway or Memorial Drive, you’ll see native trees, wildflowers and prairies being planted throughout the park. The walls are up on major destinations – Wortham Insurance Visitor Center and Lost Lake/The Dunlavy – and the Nature Play Area is taking shape.
Mark your calendar for Buffalo Bayou Park’s grand opening. The daylong celebration will feature performances showcasing Houston’s diverse arts community; recreational opportunities including bike and boat rentals; children’s activities; and walking tours and talks with the park’s designers. The celebration will culminate in a spectacular illuminated procession designed in partnership with New York-based Processional Arts Workshop (PAW).
You are invited to work with the visiting artists of PAW to help develop the theme, create visuals, and participate in the site-specific procession at the Buffalo Bayou Park grand opening event. In February, BBP hosted three community meetings and gathered terrific memories, reflections, personal stories, and photos of Buffalo Bayou. Join the continuing conversation on Facebook and share with us why Buffalo Bayou is special and meaningful to you. Words and photos are much appreciated. Your stories will inspire the visual elements illuminated in the final procession!
