Residents of Crestwood and Glen Cove enjoy a world-class 1508-acre public park next door that features Houston's first golf course, a soft jogging trail along with hiking and biking trails, picnic grounds, ball fields, tennis courts, multiple children's playgrounds, a public swimming pool, an arboretum and more. Our neighborhood is in a great location, only a few miles from downtown Houston and has easy access to major thoroughfares.
In 1917, the United States leased a large tract of land from the well-known Hogg family, and it became Camp Logan, a sophisticated training camp for U.S. Army soldiers. Camp Logan operated as a military establishment and a charity hospital for several years before the sons of Texas Governor James Hogg regained control of the land. In 1925, the Hogg family conveyed to the City of Houston much of this property for the development of Memorial Park as a dedication to the memory of World War I soldiers.
