This hike has a split personality. The Houston skyline is to the north, Allen Parkway and Memorial Drive serve as north and south borders, and in between is the park with a large greenbelt area and Buffalo Bayou meandering through it. Sections of the hike offer a retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city while still within it. Tinsley Park is located southwest of downtown, within the Sabine-to-Taft greenway. It is named in honor of city councilwoman Eleanor Tinsley, who served from 1980 to 1990. The trailhead is off the northeast corner of the parking lot. The park is the site of major festivals and events, including the city’s Fourth of July fireworks extravaganza. Start at the sidewalk with a short out-and-back hike down to the bayou.
