The Brays Bayou Greenway Trail winds along the bayou in southwestern Houston, connecting neighborhoods, universities, recreational facilities, and cultural attractions. Roughly mid-trail, Hermann Park offers trail-goers access to the Houston Zoo, beautiful gardens, and the city's museum district. Farther east is MacGregor Park, a popular neighborhood spot with its community center, playground, and pool.
The trail is part of a regional effort called Bayou Greenways, spearheaded by the Houston Parks Board, which aims to have 150 miles of greenway trails running throughout Houston. Parts of the trails are in-progress. The section between Eldridge Parkway to the Brays Bayou Connector Trail is under construction. The Connector Trail continues through Arthur Storey Park. The section of the Brays Bayou Greenway Trail between the southern end of the park and Braeburn Glen Boulevard is also under construction.
Parking can be found in the parks along the trail's route, from east to west: Mason Park (541 75th St), MacGregor Park (5225 Calhoun Rd), Hermann Park (6001 Fannin St), and Braeburn Glen Park (9510 Gessner Rd).
Parking at Hermann Park for the Brays Bayou Trail is on the south side of the park (and bayou) off Almeda Rd by Brays Bayou Park.
