  • Memorial Park is hands down the Top park for a run in Houston. You never know who may come jogging by former Olympians and top athletes train their on the daily. 
  • Memorial Park is larger than Central Park. It has a variety of activities- golf, tennis, restaurant ,3 mile track , playground. Great way to spend all or part of a day. 
  • Great running paths and city links golf course. Though you might want to avoid running at night due to the presence of homeless people in the park. 
  • I love hiking here. Trails are both bike and hike. Nice mix of easy and challenging. Memorial Park helps me de-stress.
  • Memorial Park offers a nice variety of areas for recreation. I primarily go for the 3 Mile Track around the park, that's well lit at night time, clear from debris, and long enough to enjoy. There's also a Tennis Court, some exercise areas, a Playground for the little ones, some Baseball Fields.
  • I make use of the running trails, picnic loop for cycling, and two fields for organized flag football and soccer. This a great gem of Houston. The botanical gardens are a nice break from reality.
  • Great park for jogging and walking! It is also good for road biking but not as good as Terry Hershey, George Bush, or Buffalo Bayou Park. They have very good off road trails though. If you are a mountain biker this is the place to be! Also has a nice gold course, tennis courts, restaurants and other amenities.
  • Best place to get in an outdoors workout. Always packed, but usually friendly faces all around. And so many bikes!
