Street View Memorial Park

More than 30 Houston parks, bayous and trails are now available for exploration via Google Maps Street View.

Individuals around the world can virtually visit sections of White Oak Bayou Greenway, Hunting Bayou Greenway and Sims Bayou Greenway, MacGregor Park, Hermann Park and the Bill Coats Bridge, Memorial Park and Buffalo Bayou Park.

The sites are among more than 80 Texas landmarks that have been captured through Street View Trekker imagery.  They will now be featured on Google Maps, the company announced Tuesday with representatives from the Texas Tourism office, Austin Convention & Visitors Bureau, Houston Parks Board and Visit El Paso.

The Street View Trekker is Google’s newest Street View camera platform. The images are captured using a wearable backpack that features a camera system on top.
