Brought to you by the ArCH WalkingTours

Explore the city from a vantage point most people don't see: the waterway that gave Houston life and has been its backbone for 175 years. Architecture Center Houston (ArCH), with the cooperation of Buffalo Bayou Partnership, invite you to a stroll along Buffalo Bayou Parkway for an overview of downtown Houston's history and architecture from its beginnings in 1836 to the efforts to revitalize the central city today. The tour showcases the innovative bayou reclamation efforts of the City of Houston, Harris County, and Buffalo Bayou Partnership, while discussing history and preservation, contemporary architecture, the bayou, and adjacent parkland.

Meets at Market Square Park, 301 Milam.
Market Square parking garage recommended due to 2 hour limited street parking.
$5 for Bayou Buddies members too!
