“This popular ~3 mile exercise trail loops through the heart of Memorial Park.
— Marcus Da
Expect to see a large portion of Houston's running community on this trail on any given weekend. With a wide, buffed-dirt tread that makes a near-perfect 5k, it works great for leisure jogs as well as speedwork all the same.
This is one of the most popular running trails in the city. The loop extends for about 2.9 miles, providing you with a shorter length if you so choose, but of course you can lap it to extend your distance. It is primarily a flat, smooth-dirt tread that loops its way through the trees along the perimeter of the golf course.
Pets are allowed but should be leashed and picked up after. Bicycles are not allowed on the exercise path, so you'll only have to share it with other pedestrians.
This part of the park also features a public golf course, a driving range, baseball fields, tennis courts, and a running track for your leisure.
