Formerly known as Buffalo Bayou Park, Tinsley is swarmed by tens of thousands of Houstonians and out-of-towners each year for the annual Free Press Summer Fest and a variety of other festivals, including the city’s annual Fourth of July fireworks show. During quieter months, joggers and dog walkers still pack the park, though there's plenty of room for everyone.
