Houston Neighborhood Greenways

Share This

Imagine your neighborhood working for children. Imagine children walking out their front door, riding their bicycles or skateboards or walking to friends’ houses on a network that’s designed to keep them safe. Imagine not being worried about traffic crashes on their walk to school.

Imagine yourself growing old in Houston, reaching the age where you no longer feel safe driving a car. You’ll still want to live an engaged life, visit friends, go out for nice meals, and enjoy all Houston’s assets. Imagine living in a place that supports that vision, allowing you to walk comfortably to high-quality transit, neighborhood services, parks or other places you want to go.


The Houston region needs something new — not just Bayou Greenways, but Neighborhood Greenways that would connect those trails to all users, regardless of age, ability, or mode of transport.
