Navigating Buffalo Bayou East
Saturday, November 6, 9am-11:30am


Join Architecture Center Houston and the Buffalo Bayou Partnership for a bike ride and tour exploring Houston’s past and future at Buffalo Bayou East.

In Houston's earliest days, Buffalo Bayou was key to Houston’s future as a major trading and transportation center. Today, the eastern section of the bayou is dotted with abandoned industrial relics, but Buffalo Bayou Partnership’s Master Plan East re-envisions the area as a network of trails, parks, and multi-modal connections that create a continuous link between destinations and surrounding communities.

Learn about the plan and get insights into the future development of the historic bayou with José Solís, Buffalo Bayou Partnership Project Manager; and Sarah Elmusrati, and Donna Kacmar, FAIA, from Natalye Appel + Associates Architects.

Tour will meet at Tony Marron Park. (808 N York St, Houston, TX 77003).  Space is limited and registration is required.

Attendees must bring their own bicycles. We encourage everyone to wear a helmet and bring water. Bicycles may be rented at the BCycle station at Guadalupe Plaza Park (2311 Runnels). Head east on Navigation, turn right on North York, and Tony Marron Park is on your left-hand side.

Ticket Prices: $10 BBP and AIAH Members, $15 non-members
