I do not know what the history of this park is and what makes it attractive to people. Especially for those who have written positive reviews - everything in the park looks very old. And it needs big investments to look a little better.

Great place to take photos, short distance to Galleria Mall. Free parking in near by Garage. Spend 1-2 hours here is a great retreat for visitors.

Very enjoyable , nice to be in, if you are going to do anything other than park, you need transportation, and walk you should check their website, &/or read the signs, some usage requires a permit or fee or registration.

Memorial Park is expansive and has wonderful jogging and biking paths. There are restrooms, showers, and casual eateries. It also easily reaches Buffalo Bayou Park. There is a public golf course associated with it as well.

What a gem of a community park. The place has well laid out gravel trail around a pretty large lake with an attractive memorial monument that juts out into the lake. The monument itself is worth a visit. Being a relatively new park, there is...More

This was my first visit to Memorial Park. My colleague and I drove after work and make a 3 mile circuit on a dirt path through beautifully maintained grounds. There were lots of people around and we both felt perfectly safe mid-afternoon in the park....More
