Acres Home – Houston Bikeways

Acres Home

Last Updated on

The city-county partnership established in April 2018 is an exciting opportunity to begin implementing the Acres Home Action Plan under Mayor Turner’s Complete Communities Initiative. In the plan, residents stated their goals to nurture healthy, active lifestyles and improve residents’ well-being. The city-county partnership can be an opportunity to connect pedestrians and bicyclists (and horse riders!) to area schools, transit and parks.
