Watch this slide show of lovely photographs taken in July 2014 by renowned Houston photographer Jim Olive. The photographs were taken looking downstream on Buffalo Bayou with Memorial Park on the left and the River Oaks Country Club on the right.
And here is a more recent slide show of photographs taken on a paddle up and down Buffalo Bayou past the Hogg Bird Sanctuary and Memorial Park on May 28, 2018.
And a few more taken on July 1, 2018, from the high bank and among the trees of the small stream flowing through the park into the bayou nearby.

Thank you for these photos.
Being a native Houstonian and growing up on a tributary of the bayou created a lasting inspiration for my painting.
I hope your photos are able to stop the recent destruction of the natural beauty of Buffalo Bayou
Thanks, Alix. Be sure to let the mayor, your city council and county representatives know, as well as the Harris County Flood Control District and the Army Corps of Engineers. We have until June 5 to make comments to the Corps on flood control’s revised permit application to destroy the natural beauty of Buffalo Bayou as it flows past Memorial Park.
As a native to Houston, I agree with Alix. Buffalo Bayou in it’s natural form is an asset to the city. Many inner city dwellers would not have the opportunity to experience the serenity of life outside of the pressures of city life. It is a place to be cherished. Leave it for future generations as is. There are many opportunities for Houstonians to enjoy by leaving Buffalo Bayou in it’s present form
