Did you know that Memorial Park is actually a memorial? The trees planted in the park (planted in the middle of Houston) are in memory of Houston soldiers who lost their lives in WWII. Since Ima Hogg donated the money to build the park, Houstonians have been enjoying the amazing outdoor retreat. Located on Memorial Drive and Loop 610 North, Memorial Park is a convient oasis for many on their way into or out of the city. Whether you choose to run on the 3-mile track, practice your swing at the driving range, lob the ball around at the tennis courts or kick a goal on the soccer field, Memorial Park offers a multitude of choices for you to enjoy Houston’s fall weather.
