Willow Waterhole Greenway

Receives $4 Million Gift!

During MusicFEST last month, Vice Mayor Pro-Tem, joined by Mayor Sylvester Turner and Guy Hagstette announced that local philanthropists Rich and Nancy Kinder are donating $2 million to the Willow Waterhole Greenway’s Conservancy and pledging an additional $2 million to match gifts from others. The Conservancy aims to raise a total of $10 million for upgrades, which will include trail connections to neighborhoods, additional parking, a pier, an outdoor classroom and improvements to a native prairie preserve area.

The Brays Oak Management District also received $150,000 in Council District Service Funds from District K Council Member Martha Castex-Tatum to pave the Dryad Street (just east of Chimney Rock) entrance into the site. The project was finished just in time for the Conservancy’s successful annual MusicFEST, on Oct. 30th.

The Management District helps to maintain the Greenway along with the city Parks and Recreation Department and the Conservancy, and it partners with the conservancy on the property’s development plans.

Street Rehabilitation Projects

Two areas within Sharpstown are part of a street overlay project where the streets will be resurfaced with new asphalt to provide a smoother riding surface and seal the road base, which provides the street structure, from water intrusion. Streets that have older, weathered, and cracked asphalt, but still retain a good base structure, are chosen for a new overlay to extend the overall service life of the street. Because this is a surface treatment and does not change road elevation or grade, overlay is not intended to solve drainage problems or eliminate water ponding issues. Many residents may already have received notifications, asking you to avoid parking on the affected streets. Below are maps of the two areas within Sharpstown where the project will take place. It is expected to be complete by the end of 2021.
