This park is geared up for exercising, golf, running, jogging, tennis walking. I did not see any picnic areas outdoor bar b q's or otherwise fun family entertainment, not a patch on Brackenridge in San Antonio. It does have a small café in the golf club which is NOT cheap and odd. I ordered a hot dog which came in... More

When we moved into the city, I wanted to make sure we had access to the park. It's walking distance from where we live so we usually take our dog out here once or twice a week so he can let out all his aggression. This is a great place, lots of people being active and working towards a goal.... More

I love coming here on the weekends and running around the track, its a beautiful scenery and you forget that you are in a large city. I always bring my dog and I have never felt unsafe running here whether its early in the morning or late at night.

We chose our hotel in Houston based on access to the biking trails at Memorial Park. This is a beautiful park with several mountain biking trails that are also used by hikers. The trail system sees a lot of usage which has resulted in some severe erosion however if you don't mind pushing your bike once in a while you... More

One of the best jogging trails in Houston. Nice flat crushed granite surface, with abundant folks running and walking. Very safe area, with serious runners and novice folks just interested in working out. This place puts you in the mood to exercise. Showers, lockers, restrooms located at starting point in Tennis center. Lockers, showers, towels $1 each if needed. Smoothie... More

If you're new to the area and want a safe (non road) place to walk or run this is the park for you. A very pleasant three mile loop with water fountains every mile or so. It's well kept and popular. You can people watch as you motivate. There's also tennis courts, driving range, a whole host of activities.

Been running at Memorial Park since 2001. It has improved over the years and gotten more crowded but you couldn't ask for a better course to train or exercise on.

A very good scenic spot away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Houston, very popular with runners and really good for walking to unwind. A must visit, 10/10.

Houston is a big city, and it is absoultely wonderful that there's a fairly big area where kids and adults can enjoy the grass, the trees, the water and wild birds. Simply sitting on the grass is entertainment enough. But for my daughter, it was her 1st time to run barefoot on the grass and have a grand time with... More
