The Cistern at Buffalo Bayou Park is a former drinking water reservoir built in 1926 for the City of Houston. After operating for decades, an irreparable leak was discovered and after a few years, the reservoir was decommissioned in 2007.
Thanks to support from The Brown Foundation, Inc., Buffalo Bayou Partnership has re-opened this underground, industrial relic to the public, with rotating temporary art installations scheduled throughout the year.
