There are many ways to enjoy this park ... we like to walk the large circuit, the wooded trails behind the picnic area, and check for butterflies along the utility easement behind the new fitness center and along the Living Bridge. Parking is free and usually easy to find, depending on which area you are exploring. A great resource in... More

my visit was to the pro sop for golf presents at Christmas, but would say that the main use is walking and joggers, after the drought which killed many trees, the scrub was cleared and it is beautiful again. safe and there are picnic tables

I was back in Houston again visiting and I lived here in the 1980´s and use to run around here everyday, and now I am much older I decided to come back and this time walk around. The park is a great and popular space and the first day was a Sunday and even through it was January very busy.... More

We had a great time on the course. The staff was great. We were able to get a tee time at the last minute, and the course is in great shape.

Memorial Park is the most well known of Houston's many parks. There are a golf course, pool, tennis courts, ball fields, running and biking trails and more. My favorite thing to do in the park is joining hundreds of other runners at any given time and run the 3-mile loop.

I just visited this park with my friends. It is a good place to do workouts, running, cycling, walking and exercise. There are many seating to sit with family to do fun and team building activities. Even you can do mediation at this place.

I come to this park for MTN biking trails, which is good but a bit washed out. Roadies do laps in a protected section of road with no traffic. The rest of the park has sports, picnic areas and is very popular.

Its a very nice place for jogging. The entire stretch is somewhat gives a calm feel. On the other hand you feel nice driving through it too.

The park has been hit hard by the drought but they are continually trying to improve it. You can run 3 miles on the running trail clockwise or counterclockwise with markers every ¼ mile. New running center away from the one-way street and tennis courts parking. You can also charge your electric/hybrid car while you enjoy the park. Awesome place... More
