This urban hike offers some of the best views of downtown Houston. As you hike west, away from the parking lot, you can see the Federal Reserve Bank building to the south and town homes on both sides of the bayou. Buffalo Bayou Park was originally created in 1929 to link downtown Houston with the suburban development of River Oaks, one of the more exclusive neighborhoods in Houston today. The 124-acre park includes Eleanor Tinsley Park, Police Officers Memorial, Glenwood Cemetery, Beth Yeshurun Cemetery, the Lee and Joe Jamail Skate Park, and the Sandy Reed Memorial Trail.
