Jackson Hill Bridge at Buffalo Bayou Park

Bridges. Synonymous with romance the world over. Paris has Pont des Arts, or the love lock bridge, which has seen flocks of sweethearts seal their love with a padlock over the River Seine, but if Paris is a little far to travel, Houston has its own bridge with just as much magic. The Jackson Hill bridge at Buffalo Bayou park offers a stunning view of the Houston skyline, creating the perfect contemporary backdrop for you and your beloved. Enjoy a long walk together through Buffalo Bayou park. Enjoy the contemporary sculptures that adorn the beautiful grounds…and finish the day by asking the big question on this iconic bridge.
