If you are a runner, over the outdoors, or love to walk and don't consider cement to be a suitable running surface, then Memorial Park is a great three mile run while visiting Houston. Even if you stay a great distance while visiting , or living far away it is worth the drive just to run this track every day. The only thing is the Houston's humity, and heat. Have plenty of water on hand and if you need to rest, you have plenty of shade to relax under.
The energy of the people in the park is fantastic and the path is wide and wonderful. You don't have to worry about people running into you or being in someones way. This is a great asset to the City of Houston and for runners anywhere. You should get their no matter what.
