HOUSTON JERKFEST
(THE WATER WORKS)

NON-STOP FOOD+MUSIC+FUN IN ONE DAY!

The Water Works offers three acres of new public urban park and open space with complementary pedestrian-oriented streetscapes. The park’s larger greenspace – located on the 2.5-acre site south of the multifamily development – includes a great lawn, a flexible pavilion, a wetland stream and trail, native landscaping, interactive water feature, playground, public art, game courts, market areas, and a dog park. A wide array of festivals, performances, markets, and other events keep the park exciting throughout the year. The Water Works in Buffalo Bayou Park is a major destination and park entry point made possible by reclaiming a four-acre abandoned City of Houston water system site. Atop a partially buried water reservoir is The Brown Foundation Lawn, a grassy plateau framed by trees with a stunning view of the downtown skyline. With the Hobby Family Pavilion, this elevated site is popular for performances and events.
