Memorial Park Houston History


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 on Germany. Constructed between 1917 and 1918, the camp trained more than 30,000 soldiers for service and was later converted 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.

Memorial Park homes enjoy having easy access to these facilities, and a relatively central location within the Inner Loop.

The Houston Arboretum and Nature Center, on the other hand, opened in 1967. Covering about 150 acres in the southwest corner of the park, the center provides educational facilities for children.
