Whether for recreation or simply enjoying the outdoors, over four million people have access to Memorial Park each year. The Park is a magical combination of amenities and nature, recreation and respite. Centrally located, commuters drive through winding, wooded roads, free of billboards and commerce, as they head to work. Thirty miles of hiking trails provide a respite from urban life, while local sports enthusiasts flock to the Park’s many amenities and facilities. Through sustained leadership, meaningful investment and strategic efforts, Memorial Park Conservancy, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, protects, restores and preserves Memorial Park for the enjoyment of all Houstonians, today and tomorrow. We work in collaboration with Houston Parks and Recreation Department. We believe the quality of life in Houston is directly impacted by the quality of its parks.
