A great place to relax, meditate and people-watch. Relaxing three-mile stroll with strategically placed Port-a-John's makes it a "walk in the park!"

Every time I am in Houston I do my very best to get to Memorial to go for a run. Memorial's running loop is a 5K course and is busy (not too busy) with runners.

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.
