Join us for a special presentation of Buffalo Bayou Partnership’s debut book From Rendering to Reality: The Story of Buffalo Bayou Park at Brazos Bookstore. There will be appearances by book contributors, and light snacks will be provided.

From Rendering to Reality: The Story of Buffalo Bayou Park reveals more than 100 years of civic vision for Buffalo Bayou and highlights the numerous park plans set forth by city officials, noted architects, and urban planners over time. The pages also feature spectacular photographs of Buffalo Bayou Park, historical images, and maps, along with fascinating insights into the thoughtful design and engineering efforts behind the park’s success. From Rendering to Reality: The Story of Buffalo Bayou Park highlights the green space’s enriched native landscape and wildlife habitat, its wide range of trail improvements, the creative lunar cycle lighting scheme, the multi-faceted destinations and their architectural considerations, plus major public art installations.

Stephen Fox, who wrote the book’s foreword, will provide a brief history of Houston’s planning and the importance of the iconic greenspace, Buffalo Bayou Park.
