GREENS BAYOU REGATTA
The Greens Bayou Regatta's inaugural race was held in 2016. Since then, the race has grown to over 115 participants per year. Funds raised from the event support ongoing development of launches and amenities for the Greens Bayou Paddle Trail.
In 2013, the Greens Bayou Coalition partnered with the National Parks Service to develop the Greens Bayou Paddle Trail Strategic Plan. That plan has been foundational in he development of many regional pland including Bayou Greenways 2020 by the City of Houston and the Houston Parks Board and Harris County. At this time the Houston Parks Board has completed kayak launches at Brock Park and Strickland Park, and has a launch at Thomas Bell Foster under construction. The Greens Bayou Coalition is currently in design for a launch at Bill Crowley Park in partnership with Harris County Precinct 2 and Commissioner Adrian Garcia. The Greens Bayou Paddle Trail is also in review for Texas Paddle Trail designation by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.
