Memorial Parkway TX History

Memorial Parkway is one of Greater Katy’s older, more established neighborhoods. It was built during the mid-1970s through to the early 1980s. During this period, the area was experiencing a lot of growth and a number of other subdivisions and communities were built.

Residential developments, like Cinco Ranch, Kelliwood, Green Trails, and Memorial Parkway grew thanks to the completion of Interstate 10 (Katy Freeway) and Houston’s westward expansion. Demand for housing outside the city, the highly sought-after Katy ISD, and easier commutes drew homebuyers into the Greater Katy area.

Today, homes in communities like Memorial Parkway are still in great demand. With its award-winning schools, peaceful atmosphere, and central location, Memorial Parkway’s appeal is hard to resist.
