Living at Hanover Autry Park and Hanover Parkview just got even better.
Today Autry Park announced its commitment to the newly-launched Buffalo Bayou Partnership Corporate Partners Program.
“Buffalo Bayou Partnership is delighted to welcome Autry Park to the Buffalo Bayou Park neighborhood, and we are honored to have Autry Park’s support as the first member of our Corporate Partners Program,” said Anne Olson, Buffalo Bayou Partnership President. “With the new development taking place in the area, Buffalo Bayou Park will become even more popular. We introduced the Corporate Partners Program to connect with like-minded organizations while also working to support our non-profit’s work, including meeting the increased demands on our staff and park maintenance budget.”
The park includes beautiful gardens and native landscaping; hike and bike trails; the go-to dog park in the city; public art; a creative nature play area; a visitor center; and gathering places for visitors to picnic, relax, and enjoy the outdoors. The $25,000 commitment to the Corporate Partners Program by the Autry Park development team was established to create an organic connection between the residents of Autry Park and Buffalo Bayou Park.
“The Corporate Partners Program is a way for us to expand our mission to transform and revitalize Buffalo Bayou,” said Jessica McFall, Buffalo Bayou Partnership Marketing Manager. “There are a number of ways to get involved with our organization, so the program was put in place to seamlessly connect Autry Park residents to those opportunities, like our young professional group, The Currents, which is a great way to meet people who share a common interest.”
Highlights of the program include benefits such as complimentary Buffalo Bayou Partnership memberships for Autry Park residents, tenant and resident volunteer opportunities, a discount at the park’s gift shop, and discounts to BBP’s special events and programming, including the Buffalo Bayou Park Cistern and annual Regatta.
“Our goal is to ensure Autry Park residents are able to become fully immersed in the neighborhood and the community created by Buffalo Bayou Park, right across the street from our development,” said Monica Fife, Regional Manager for Hanover Company. “Now that residences at both Hanover Autry Park and Hanover Parkview are open and we are welcoming our first move-ins, we are thrilled to see the community come to life. When Autry Park is complete, it will feel like a natural extension of Buffalo Bayou Park, the beloved amenity that was the inspiration for the lush landscape and green space that will be featured throughout the Autry Park development.”
