Memorial Park

• MEMORIAL PARK GOLF COURSE: The 18-hole municipal golf course covers 300+ acres, and features a golf museum, a clubhouse, a lighted driving range, and putting and chipping greens. First opened in the 1920s, Memorial Park Golf Course today welcomes more than 60,000 visitors every year. The John Bredemus-designed course has a 73 course rating and a 122 slope rating.

• SPORTS FACILITIES: Memorial Park residents have easy access to the park’s many sports facilities, including a croquet court and sand volleyball courts. The park’s various sports fields can be used for rugby, softball, baseball, and flag football. The Memorial Park Tennis Center features 18 hard courts, while the Memorial Park Fitness Center offers an indoor swimming pool and exercise equipment.

• MULTI-PURPOSE NATURE TRAILS: Memorial Park is known for its many trails, varying in size (from small paths to wider roads), surface (from paved to rougher sections), and degrees of difficulty (color coded from easy to advanced). Mountain bikers, nature trekkers, joggers, and skaters frequent specific trails, including the popular Picnic Loop and the Seymour Lieberman Exertrail. Most Memorial Park neighborhoods have direct access to the park’s trails.
• BUFFALO BAYOU INTEGRATION: The Buffalo Bayou and Beyond initiative aims to connect Memorial Park and its vast trail system to several other parks along the bayou, including the newly renovated Buffalo Bayou Park and Trail. Upon completion, this “linear park system” will stretch 10 miles from Memorial Park to the Turning Basin.
• EXCLUSIVITY: Glen Cove and Crestwood feature some of Houston’s most expensive real estate. Homes in these neighborhoods have a median sale price of over $1,500,000. Caceres, an upscale Houston gated community, is also within a few minutes of Memorial Park.
• GREAT ACCESSIBILITY: Downtown Houston is about 4 miles away from Memorial Park. Residents have relatively easy commutes via main roads like Memorial Drive, Washington Avenue, I-10, Loop 610, and Allen Parkway. The Galleria, another major employment centers with 2,000+ companies, is less than 5 miles away.
