Memorial Park Houston TX Homes & Real Estate Guide

Memorial Park Houston Real Estate Guide

The historic Memorial Park, a sprawling 1,400-acre green space, is home to one of Texas’ top municipal golf courses, miles of multi-use trails, and various sports and outdoor facilities.

Nestled south of I-10 and east of Loop 610, the Memorial Park area is one of the most popular neighborhoods within the Inner Loop.

Residents living near the park enjoy proximity to its many amenities and its unique “close to nature” vibe.

  • MEMORIAL PARK GOLF COURSE: The 18-hole municipal golf course covers 300+ acres, and features a golf museum, a clubhouse, a lighted driving range, and putting and chipping greens. First opened in the 1920s, Memorial Park Golf Course today welcomes more than 60,000 visitors every year. The John Bredemus-designed course has a 73 course rating and a 122 slope rating. (See Houston’s Best Golf Course Communities)
  • SPORTS FACILITIES: Memorial Park residents have easy access to the park’s many sports facilities, including a croquet court and sand volleyball courts. The park’s various sports fields can be used for rugby, softball, baseball, and flag football. The Memorial Park Tennis Center features 18 hard courts, while the Memorial Park Fitness Center offers an indoor swimming pool and exercise equipment.
  • MULTI-PURPOSE NATURE TRAILS: Memorial Park is known for its many trails, varying in size (from small paths to wider roads), surface (from paved to rougher sections), and degrees of difficulty (color coded from easy to advanced). Mountain bikers, nature trekkers, joggers, and skaters frequent specific trails, including the popular Picnic Loop and the Seymour Lieberman Exertrail. Most Memorial Park neighborhoods have direct access to the park’s trails.
  • BUFFALO BAYOU INTEGRATION:  The Buffalo Bayou and Beyond initiative aims to connect Memorial Park and its vast trail system to several other parks along the bayou, including the newly renovated Buffalo Bayou Park and Trail. Upon completion, this “linear park system” will stretch 10 miles from Memorial Park to the Turning Basin.
  • EXCLUSIVITY: Glen Cove and Crestwood feature some of Houston’s most expensive real estate. Homes in these neighborhoods have a median sale price of over $1,500,000. Caceres, an upscale Houston gated community, is also within a few minutes of Memorial Park.
  • GREAT ACCESSIBILITY: Downtown Houston is about 4 miles away from Memorial Park. Residents have relatively easy commutes via main roads like Memorial Drive, Washington Avenue, I-10, Loop 610, and Allen Parkway. The Galleria, another major employment centers with 2,000+ companies, is less than 5 miles away.

Due to the number of neighborhoods, communities, and residential buildings in the area, buying or selling a home in Memorial Park can be tricky. The Crestwood and Glen Cove neighborhoods are deed-restricted, which may be good or bad depending on your long term goals. Some homes are located near main roads and freeways, while others are older and may need to be updated.

Memorial Park and most of its surrounding neighborhoods used to be a part of Camp Logan, a World War I boot camp.

Camp John A. Logan was commissioned shortly after the United States declared war with Germany. Constructed between 1917 and 1918, the camp trained more than 30,000 soldiers for service, and was later convered into a military hospital and golf course.

Decommissioned shortly thereafter, the land was sold back to the city of Houston. Memorial Park opened in 1924.

Today, Memorial Park covers about 1,400 acres and is one of the three largest urban parks in Houston (alongside Hermann Park and MacGregor Park). Lined with miles of trails and several forested areas, the park features several outdoor and indoor sights and activity areas.
