With the help of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and the City of Houston Parks and Recreation Department, Project Brays was able to transform this detention basin into a beautiful recreational park for the community through the Willow Waterhole Greenway Project.
Willow Waterhole is one of four stormwater detention basins designed by Project Brays and can hold approximately 600 million gallons of stormwater. When not being used for flood damage control, these 279 acres of greenspace offer amenities such as walking and biking trails, playgrounds, picnic areas, and more.
Thanks to the dedication and commitment of community leaders and organizations, such as the Willow Waterhole Greenspace Conservancy, the Willow Waterhole Greenway Project was able to come to fruition. It is partnerships like this that set new standards, demonstrating how working together can better benefit the communities they serve.
