The trail is not paved --- good for feet and joints. Besides casual runners, there are quite a few serious runners. A separate trail for bikers.

The 3 mile loop is very well maintained, and a great place to run when in town on business. Lots of other runners, very safe and friendly.

As a lone female, I felt safe running in the middle of the city. Not much to see. I didn't mind the number of runners, but the entire trail is next to the roadways and there is a lot of traffic.

Memorial Park is an open place with trees where Houstonians, thousands of them, come to walk and run. As parks go, it is decidedly ordinary and relatively featureless. It is often really crowded and finding a place to park a vehicle can be challenging. Why it is such a massive draw while another big park, Hermann, is largely ignored and frankly much nicer is something I have never understood. If you are looking for solitude, this isn't the place.
