Yes, it gets crowded in the evening or weekends. Parking will be pain during those peak hours too. And swerving around people who walk, and strollers, sometimes kids in their bicycles could be irritating. That's why I run early in the morning, 5 am. Or at night after 8 pm. Parking is never an issue, plus, it will be only... More

Always LOTS of people jogging and walking the trail. Hard to find a parking spot. I prefer the trail around Rice University. It's also cooler in the summer because it has shade trees. If you're thinking of having a picnic, you really need to reserve in advance.

I love this park! I feel so fortunate to live in a huge city and have access to dirt trails for running and walking. Dogs are leased, so there are no dogs chasing you, people are friendly, and with the addition of the trail center, there are nice BRs and shower facilities, as well as more parking.

This park is the best place for a walk/jog/run that I have been to in the US. The park is very nice and very well maintained. The location is also great as we were staying at the nearby Houstonian hotel. I felt safe which isn't the case in this city.

Memorial Park is a 1502- acre city park that has something for everyone! Located on Memorial Drive and near I-10 & the 610 Loop. Memorial park received its name because much of the park is located on the grounds of a World War I military facility and it commemorates World War I soldiers. It's a great place to bring your...

Love the 3 mile walking/running path...always busy, well maintained by the city....Too bad the drought got many of the trees, but they are being replaced and the park is being upgraded with new bike paths and cross-overs.

Excellent place for various types of workouts. Love to workout there when visiting Houston! Thanks and big kudos to Uptown Houston for the new crushed granite trail. Much easier to run and walk on! Keep up the great work.
