The Buffalo Bayou Partnership has been charged with leading the park improvement project. With an historic $30 million catalyst gift from the Kinder Foundation, park enhancements are being planned to restore the bayou to a natural, self-sustaining state and reintroduce native vegetation and amenities to the park that will enhance safety and the visitor experience. The total cost of the project is $55 million.
