Buffalo Bayou Partnership

Created in 1986, Buffalo Bayou Partnership (BBP) is a coalition of civic, environmental, governmental and business representatives whose director nominees are confirmed by the Mayor of Houston and Harris County Judge. The 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization is transforming and revitalizing Buffalo Bayou, Houston's most significant natural resource.

For more than twenty-five years, BBP has been actively pursuing plans and programs for a 10-mile stretch of Buffalo Bayou from Shepherd Drive to the Port of Houston Turning Basin. Directed by the Buffalo Bayou and Beyond Master Plan, over the past 15 years alone the organization has raised and leveraged more than $125 million for Buffalo Bayou’s revitalization. Buffalo Bayou Partnership protects land for future parks and trails, coordinates other natural and built bayou enhancements and sponsors wide-ranging events to attract thousands to the banks of the bayou.
