East End Residents Invited to Memorial Park Master Plan Update Meeting

East End Residents Invited to Memorial Park Master Plan Update Meeting

Did you know that Houston’s Memorial Park is twice as large as New York City’s Central Park?

Located inside Loop 610 between I-10 and Buffalo Bayou, Memorial Park offers all types of recreation from picnicking and bird watching to soccer and swimming. Memorial Park welcomes people from all across the city to enjoy nature and recreation in an environment special to Houston. The METRO Bus 6 makes 3 stops in Memorial Park westbound and 4 stops eastbound. Memorial Park is open 6 am to 11 pm 365 days of the year, rain or shine.

Through a new master plan, Memorial Park will be restored, preserved and enhanced for the enjoyment of all Houstonians for generations to come.

The master plan will:

  • Be informed by comprehensive research and public input
  • Restore habitat and a healthy, resilient ecosystem
  • Upgrade amenities
  • Address key infrastructure issues
  • Honor the history of the park—cultural and ecological

Please join Memorial Park Tomorrow for an update on the master plan:

Monday, January 12th, 2015
