 The Willow Waterhole Greenspace Conservancy (WWGC) is a diverse and broad-based group of citizens dedicated to the creation of the Willow Waterhole Greenway Project, which is part of Harris County Flood Control and US Army Corps of Engineers' Project Brays.  The resulting space is named the Willow Waterhole Conservation Reserve.

The project is an exciting combination of major flood control, a $70M series of wet-bottom detention lakes, and Greenspace in a 291-acre park in Southwest Houston.  Latest Status
