Construction set to begin on new Buffalo Bayou dog park
HOUSTON – Buffalo Bayou Park is a popular place where people come to run, bike, sun bathe and check out the art displays.
But it has also become the go-to destination for Houston dog owners and their furry companions.
Dog owner Jeff Busby brings his pet every weekend to the open two-acre meadow, where the dog can run along the bayou without any fences restricting him.
“They love the bayou and they love swimming so we like to come here,” said Busby.
Julie Mosley doesn’t even own a dog, but comes with her dog-owning friends often.
“A great Dane, a labradoodle, a Chihuahua, a dog army,” said Mosley. “We’ve had so much. We’ve made dog friends, people friends, so it’s good,” said Mosley.
But starting Tuesday the fun will end. The area that’s become the unofficial dog park will undergo a $1.5 million in renovations to make it an official dog park. That means it will be closed off from the rest of Buffalo Bayou Park until the fall.
