ABOUT MEMORIAL PARK CONSERVANCY With 1,500 acres of forest, cycling and running trails, ballfields, picnic areas, and public spaces, Memorial Park is one of the largest urban sanctuaries in the United States. It is nearly twice the size of New York’s Central Park and equally important to the city. Its size, location, and composition distinguish it from other local parks and also make it unique nationally. Memorial Park has played an important role in Houston’s ecological, economic and cultural history, serving as a home for Native Americans and as a training camp for soldiers in World War I named Camp Logan. Today, Memorial Park truly serves ALL Houstonians. Visitors enjoy the Park’s urban wilderness—which blends multiple regional ecology types, including woodland forest and native plant species—as well as an array of activities that range from running and cycling to croquet, volleyball and bird watching. Memorial Park hosts 4 million visitors per year and, as Houston’s largest urban park, serves as a critical civic asset. The mission of the Memorial Park Conservancy is to preserve, restore, and enhance Memorial Park for the enjoyment of all Houstonians, today and tomorrow. Our vision is to implement principles of world-class park management and stewardship in partnership with the Houston community.
