Ever searched for “Houston Outdoor Live”?
What comes up is eating, drinking and sitting down to listen to music. Nothing wrong with eating, drinking or music, we LOVE all of these. And, we want to see our Houstonian friends outside digging all this city has to offer. With 52,912 acres of parkland, 163 miles of biking trails and 2500 miles of waterway there is no shortage of playgrounds. BCO & HTXO are on a mission this summer to teach our friends everything they need to know to be an outdoor ninja. (or – another sentence: we are on a mission this summer to teach you everything you need to be outdoor savvy)
