Originating 35-miles west of downtown, Buffalo Bayou winds through a patchwork of diverse landscapes towards Allen’s Landing, the historical birthplace of Houston. Akin to many other cities, Houston has been striving to overcome perpetual issues of flooding, pollution, public health, and a lack of equitably distributed open space, all the while attempting to foster an environment that stimulates economic development.
