Waugh Drive Bat Colony

A Foggy Morning on the Bayou
Eleanor Tinsley Park in Houston is a great place to spend time outdoors. There's the Waugh Bridge Bat Colony, hiking and biking trails, and tons of green space to enjoy.

Watch the Waugh Bridge Bats Take Flight
One of Houston's best-kept secrets emerges nightly at sunset from underneath the Waugh Drive Bridge near Buffalo Bayou -- a colony of about 300,000 Mexican free-tailed bats! They draw a regular crowd of onlookers. Join them from the sidewalk of the Waugh Drive Bridge or from the north bayou bank, east of the bridge in Buffalo Bayou Park. You can park at Spotts Park or along Allen Parkway.
