Create White Oak Bayou Park

Houston Mayor's Office and City Council

White Oak Bayou

We are petitioning the city of Houston to formally designate the White Oak Greenway as a city park. This will preserve natural habitat for area wildlife, provide greenspace for public use, and prevent development on this land, including the expansion of freeways.

Without formal protection, this land is not protected and can be destroyed to make way for development. Currently TxDOT has plans to clear cut 28 acres of forest to construct a detention pond, raise the freeway by 90 ft., and place numerous elevated ramps over land that is currently used by wildlife and the public.
