James Bute Park

Places-Unique-James Bute Park-sign-1

This park’s 12.5 acres are centered around the Frost Town historic site, which was an early settlement in the 1830s and is now an urban green space near Buffalo Bayou and the McKee Street Bridge. Named for the late James “Jim” Bute IV, who was an advocate of the McKee Street Bridge Habitat, and his grandfather James Bute I, who was a major contributor to the development of Houston at the turn of the century, this ecosystem is open to the public and tours are provided by the Preservation Alliance and the Rice Design Alliance. It’s also just a cool place to hang out.
