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

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.

The difference between this part and NYC central park is you have to drive to get there - like everything in Houston. But once there it's a large and well maintained park with lots of walking and jogging trails, a golf course, restaurants, ball fields,...More
