September 26, 2014 -- In late September, construction began for the Running Trails Center. For many years, the Seymour Leiberman Exer-Trail in Memorial Park has been one of the most highly-utilized running trails in the City of Houston, with more than 10,000 runners using the three-mile running track each day. The 2004 Master Plan identified the need for a new locker/changing and visitor orientation facility near Memorial Drive. The Running Trails Center will be available to runners, bikers, hikers, rollerbladers and other visitors that utilize the southern section of the park. It will feature lockers, shower, restrooms, a multi-purpose room, Memorial Park Conservancy offices and a Houston Police Department office. The Center was graciously funded by the community through a capital campaign led by Mindy Hildebrand. Construction is expected to be complete in late Spring 2014.
