Honoring those who served our space exploration

A very memorable experience when viewed on our tour tram as we stopped for a moment to pay our respects for those who gave their lives in the pursuit of space exploration.

Take the 3-mile loop around the park on the gravel path for a great wake up any day. Very easy on the feet! Always busy with walkers, and dog-walkers, joggers and runners, this park is a wonderful urban resource for all. Lots of free parking all along the ring road. Even though well-lit at night, I stick to daylight hours.... More

We must walk around Memorial park 3 or 4 times a week. There are always lots of people jogging, running or walking around the trail so you feel it's perfectly safe. The tennis courts are plentiful and reasonable priced but some of them are a little worse for wear. The trail is well looked after and currently it is being... More

We got mountain bikes and went over to Memorial to try out the trails ! They have so many well kept trails, and I always forget I'm in the city when I go there. It's like a small little forest in the heart of Houston where you can ride your bike and spend the day out! The trails are marked... More

The feedback I'm giving is from my military days, when I and the group of US Marines would run thru the park as well, as have FUN. The unit I was assigned to would use this park, very often to keep in shape. This was during the year before 2007.

What a wonderful place to go in Houston. You can just go walking or just people watch and have a great time. Really beautiful and always a lot of people. Actually going today for art fair. And they have gardens and a equestrian center.

Nice, spacious park with an extremely well-kept 3 mile running/walking path. It's a park, what else do you need to know? It's clean, you can't hear the traffic around you, there are well-maintained restroom facilities and water fountains. The greenery has lost some of its luster due to a drought a few years ago, but it's coming back. A nice... More
