Houston Parks Board: Connecting Communities


Beth White is the president and CEO of Houston Parks Board. They are hosting their 2017 Annual Luncheon on Tuesday, October 17. Charles Renfrow will be the guest speaker. You'll get a chance to hear updates on the progress of the massive Bayou Greenways 2020 project which is already great success. Beth reports that thanks to their initiatives, the work they've done is merely slowed down by hurricane Harvey's flood. The areas affected faired well since they were designed to help canalize flood waters and are being cleaned up. It's an example of responsible conservation and consequently, Houston Parks Board is still on track to connect more than 3,000 acres along the bayous into parks dedicated to recreation, transportation, and conservation. Once completed, 150 miles of greenspace and trails will crisscross all of Houston. You can get involved and stay up to date by visiting their website: www.houstonparksboard.org
