Bretshire Basin

White Oak Studio was landscape architect for the Harris County Flood Control District development of the Bretshire Basin. Located at Hall’s Bayou and Jensen Road in northeast Houston, the Basin is part of the District’s flood control plans for the Hall’s Bayou watershed. We worked on a team led by McDonough Engineering and were responsible for the design of in-basin water quality features and for recreation amenities along the edge of the basin. While the recreation amenities were constructed, funded by a Tx Parks & Wildlife grant, implementation of the basin was put on hold pending resolution of a broader watershed effort.
