Bayou Greenways

As early as 1912, the bayou system was envisioned as the backbone of an equitable, accessible park system. Almost 100 years later, the Bayou Greenway Initiative is a long-range project to achieve that vision. By acquiring and improving land adjacent to ten major bayous, we will establish an interconnected system of parks and trails linking people, places and green space, while enhancing air and water quality, reducing flooding, and stimulating economic development.
