What’s Happening in Memorial Park

And speaking of Memorial Park, two projects associated with the Park’s Master Plan reboot, the Land Bridge and Prairie, are nearing completion this year. The Land Bridge will unite the north and south sides of the Park through a wooded hill (land bridge) built over Memorial Drive whose double roadway will be rerouted through a pair of breathtaking tunnels underneath. The Prairie adjoins the Land Bridge on both sides and will re-introduce native Gulf Coast prairie and wetlands severely damaged by Hurricane Ike and the 2011 drought. Even unfinished, both projects are visually stunning and, more importantly, serve the habitat and stormwater management functions of the Park’s Master Plan. Memorial Park is located at 6501 Memorial Drive, Houston, TX 77007. For more information visit memorialparkconservancy.org.
