Houston, Texas

The City of Houston acquired 14.3 acres from the Texas National Guard, at no cost, through the Federal Lands to Parks program. In conjunction with the Harris County Flood Control District, the Houston Parks and Recreation Department developed a trailhead for walking trails along the Halls Bayou Greenway. The trails complement flood control efforts in Halls and Green Bayous. Planned improvements include wetlands enhancement, walking and nature trails, picnic areas, and a playground.
