Buffalo Bayou Partnership


Created in 1986, Buffalo Bayou Partnership (BBP) is the non-profit organization dedicated to revitalizing and transforming Buffalo Bayou, Houston's most significant natural resource. BBP's geographic focus is the 10-square mile stretch of Buffalo Bayou from Shepherd Drive to the Port of Houston Turning Basin. The BBP board and staff have raised and leveraged more than $150 million in private and public funds for the redevelopment and stewardship of the bayou - spearheading capital projects such as Buffalo Bayou Park and Sabine Promenade, protecting land for future parks, constructing hike and bike trails, and operating comprehensive maintenance programs. Buffalo Bayou Partnership also seeks ways to activate Buffalo Bayou through pedestrian, boating and biking amenities; volunteer activities; permanent and temporary art installations; and wide-ranging tours and events that attract thousands.
