Houston Parks Board Makes Progress on Greenbelt Project South of Hamblen

Houston Parks Board continues making progress on creating a San Jacinto Greenway with a hike-and-bike trail. Their vision: to connect the Spring Creek Greenway to Kingwood’s trail network. They would do that by creating a trail between Hamblen Road and the West Fork. The trail would extend from the US59 pedestrian bridge near Harris County’s planned Edgewater Park to Woodland Hills Drive near River Grove Park.

Location of Demo Work

To clear a path for the greenway, the Houston Parks Board has acquired a property along Northshore Drive. It’s west of Sweet Bay Street and south of Hamblen Road (see map below).

Starting March 19, Houston Parks Board will begin demolishing structures on this property.


The contractor will be Cherry Demolition. Their trucks will use Hamblen Road and Northshore Drive.

The job will start Thursday, March 19. It will run through Thursday, March 26, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

If you see heavy equipment in the area, that’s what it is about.

Edgewater Park Still Planned, Just Delayed

Precinct Four still plans to construct Edgewater Park. Their plans have been delayed by reconstruction of the railroad bridge and changing design criteria. More news on the county’s plans in an upcoming post.
