Springtime on Buffalo Bayou REGISTRATION CLOSED

In a reprise of our extremely popular fall course, we will explore the amazing transformation of 160 acres along Buffalo Bayou between Shepherd and Sabine Streets with the planners and designers who created it. Our outing will begin with light bites and refreshments at The Dunlavy, the park’s new special events space, and an introduction, overview, and current updates, followed by a springtime stroll with our guides Anne Olson, Guy Hagstette, and Scott McCready.

Over more than 20 years, BBP president Anne Olson and the BBP board have raised and leveraged over $150 million in private and public funds for the waterway’s redevelopment. During her tenure Ms. Olson has developed and implemented a comprehensive bayou-enhancement program which includes land acquisition, trail and park development, public programming, and permanent and temporary public art along Buffalo Bayou from Shepherd Drive to the Port of Houston Turning Basin.

In mid-2010, project director Guy Hagstette, FAIA, began overseeing the ambitious plan for Houston’s historic waterway. From 2006 until 2010, he served as president and park director of Discovery Green.

Scott McCready, ASLA, is SWA Group’s lead designer for Buffalo Bayou Park. Over the past thirteen years he has been engaged in a number of projects along Houston’s waterways, including the Sabine Promenade, Rosemont Bridge, and Brays Bayou.
