Work Begins on Memorial Park Master Plan

Work begins on Memorial Park Conservancy’s  $200 million Transformational Master Plan at  Houston’s 1,466 acre Memorial Park. The park is almost twice the size of Central Park in New York City.

The Memorial Park Conservancy recently announced that work on the plan will begin in November 2015. The first stage of development is a 113-acre area located north of Memorial Drive that will be called the Eastern Glades. Plans include shifting East Memorial Loop Drive eastward, back towards Downtown Houston, in order to connect a surrounding 83-acres that are currently divided…then this park space between the Crestwood subdivision and Memorial Park Golf Course will become a “passive recreation area” surrounded by a restored savannah and pine-hardwood forest.

Houston-MemorialPark-Trees-ctThe partners in the park project are the Memorial Park Conservancy, the Houston Parks and Recreation Department and the Uptown Houston TIRZ. The Master Plan could take 20 years to complete, assuming funding becomes available for all of the projects.
