Memorial Park is a preferred location for Houstonians to take pleasure in the outdoors and one of the largest urban parks in the nation. Opened in 1924, the park was called “Memorial” to honor the soldiers who battled in World War I and trained at Camp Logan, a U.S. Army training school formerly found on what is nowMemorial Park
Today, Memorial Park is amongst the very best locations to go to and a terrific free thing to do in Houston year-round. The impressive park covers almost 1,500 acres inside the 610 Loop, a 38-mile highway that loops around the central city. For viewpoint, Memorial Park is almost double the size of Central Park in New York City.
