My husband and I went to Memorial Park to hike some of the trails. It is a huge park in the middle of Houston. The parking is concentrated in just a couple areas with long distances between.

While there were no events going on in the park while I was visiting, it was still quite busy with activity. The park is well maintained and feels safe during the day (have not visited at night), plenty of benches for catching up with friends.

Beautiful park in the middle of downtown. Live concerts and plenty of room to stretch your legs. I'm amazed at how well Houston has done with revamping the city. Worth the time to visit.

What a wonderful green space in the heart of a busy city. Lots of walking and jogging trails, picnic areas, and restful quite areas. It is a great place to spend time with family or your furry friend.

I love to come walking here when the sun goes down. I love the pull-up bars located throughout the park. The people are pretty friendly here.

Memorial is a great park, especially for runners. It was devastated with the drought a few years back, but it's bounced back and I believe there's some money being pumped into it. Not quite Central Park, but a great asset to the City

This is a park where you can go and have a picnic or walk/jog around the three mile track. Especially during those months where Houston is enjoying some nice weather. Once it gets to be really hot it might not be a place to go...More

When visiting Houston, this park is excellent to get some exercise in, regardless of your fitness level. It's quite a picturesque location, and easily accessible, with ample parking.

It is a good place where you can run after a full day face to the computers and meetings. Safe and easy to run a 3 miles path.
