Tony Marron Park will become a gathering place for Greater East End and Fifth Ward residents and will serve as the primary green space destination for Buffalo Bayou East.

Gathering Spaces

Buffalo Bayou Partnership is expanding Tony Marron Park into one of Houston’s best neighborhood parks.

Upgrades include:

• New entry gardens connecting to North York Street, enhanced sports fields, improved habitat areas, and a new nature play area.

• A central maintenance facility will house park operations for the entire Buffalo Bayou East area along with BBP’s waterway cleanup operation.

• A new barbeque plaza will be popular for small and large gatherings.

• Existing buildings on the City-owned Drennan Street site, refurbished as picnic pavilions for a food truck court, support community events and activities in the Fiesta Plaza.

• Shade structures distributed throughout the park encourage families to come for birthdays, picnics, and other celebrations.

• A pedestrian bridge connects the park to Japhet Creek Park.

By 2032, Buffalo Bayou Partnership and its partners will realize the Buffalo Bayou East 10-Year Plan, bringing parks, trails, bayou-crossing bridges, affordable housing, cultural destinations, and infrastructure improvements to the Greater East End and Fifth Ward.  This visionary plan is made possible by a $100 million catalyst gift from the Kinder Foundation to Buffalo Bayou Partnership, which leveraged significant public support from Harris County and the City of Houston, including Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone funds.

BBP continues to raise the remaining funds needed to complete the plan.  To learn more about supporting Tony Marron Park and the Buffalo Bayou East 10-Year Plan, please contact Leigh McBurnett, Vice President of Development, at 713.752.0314 ext. 105.
