Buffalo Bayou Promenade

Buffalo Bayou runs through the heart of the city and now is home for the Buffalo Bayou Promenade. Thirty years ago, no one would ever think of walking its banks, but now after millions of dollars of private funding, it is a revitalized section of town as it is now used for live music performances, a place for public art and sculptures and a destination for canoeing (if you dare), as well as, jogging and cycling.

This “torch” is part of the promenade and labels where the bayou crosses underneath Interstate 45, just west of downtown. It is visible from both the walkways below and the freeway above.


  1. Very interesting post. It is good that the place is revitalized and used for live music....

    Thank you for visiting my blog.
