MEMORIAL PARK

Memorial Park, a municipal park in Houston, Texas, is one of the largest urban parks in the United States. Opened in 1924,

the park covers approximately 1,466 acres (6 km2) inside the 610 Loop, across from the neighborhood of Memorial.

Memorial Drive runs through the park, heading east to downtown Houston and west to the 610 Loop. I-10 borders the park

to the north. The park includes the 18-hole Memorial Park Golf Course, Texas’s top-rated municipal golf course which

opened in 1936. The park also has facilities for tennis, softball, swimming, track, croquet, volleyball, skating, and cycling.

The park is very popular with Houston joggers, and is home to the Seymour Lieberman Exercise Trail, a 2.93 mile crushed stone pathway that sees almost 3 million visitors annually. In 1951, the Houston Arboretum & Nature Center was established, consumes a little over 150 acres of the western portion of the park, and offers 5 miles of walking trails, a Discovery Room, Reference Library, Gift Shop, and classrooms. On the south side of Memorial Drive, there are miles of multi-use trails through the woods, a 'picnic' loop which is used heavily by road cyclists, softball fields, sand volleyball courts and a field for playing rugby or soccer.

 

FIRE PROTECTION

Living next to a heavily wooded park has obvious benefits. Some risks also exist, especially during dry conditions. Here are some helpful hints for minimizing the risk of fire to your home prepared by the International Firechiefs Association: Fire Protection

MASTER PLAN

 

The Master Plan project is a blueprint for the future of Memorial Park, the largest park in Houston's urban center and one of the largest municipal parks in the state. With over 1500 acres of woodland environment, the Master Plan was begun to ensure that Memorial Park meets the needs of its citizens while at the same time maintaining a healthy, functioning ecosystem. It began based on the collective concerns of the City of Houston, the Memorial Park Conservancy, and the Houston Parks Board, Inc. that increasing pressure to add more facilities to the Park without a plan or guiding principles would create a situation unacceptable both to those whose responsibility it is to care for the Park and those who care about and use the Park.

 

The Conservation Master Plan was commissioned to create an objective basis for resolving the multiple concerns that face Memorial Park, ranging from concern for the natural environment to concerns about the uses that occur in it. The plan brings these concerns into focus by considering the Park's origins, the terms under which the park land was conveyed to the city,

and the role the Park plays as a recreational and environmental asset.

 

Master Plan Overview
