Park Access

Need a way to get to the Park? Here are some options:

Multi-Modal Transportation

The extended trail system created through forthcoming capital improvements will significantly expand multi-modal transportation opportunities to and within the Park, thereby reducing the need for car access.

Metro Bus

The number 20 bus line runs east and west on Memorial Drive with multiple stops within the Park. Numbers 33 and 84 both stop at the station located at I-610 North and Woodway Drive. For more information about bus lines and fares, please visit the Metro website.

Bike Rack locations

If you bike into the Park, you’ll find bike racks located at the Cullen Running Trails Center, the Tennis Center, and Eastern Glades.

  • There are two Houston BCycle stations located in the Park – one at the Cullen Running Trails Center and one at the entrance to Picnic Loop. BCycle bikes can be rented at and returned to any station in the City, so you can bike to Memorial Park from any location with a BCycle station.

  • You can see a full station map here to learn how you can connect to and from Memorial Park.

  • Houston BCycle is $3 per 30 minutes for single trips and $9 per month for unlimited hour-long rides. More information can be found on the BCycle website.

Free Parking

Free parking is available throughout the Park for nearly 2000 combined lot and on-street parking spaces.

Paid Parking

During the public input phase of the Master Plan planning process for the future of Memorial Park, Houstonians asked for the Park to remain an urban wilderness park. In keeping with this desire, Memorial Park offers little opportunity for earned income to offset the costs of maintaining one of the largest urban parks in the nation. In 2015, Houston City Council unanimously approved the Memorial Park Master Plan. Recognizing a critical need for funding the day-to-day care of Memorial Park, the subsequent agreement called for paid parking to be implemented as part of the Master Plan.

How Does My $1 Help Memorial Park?

100% of parking income directly supports Memorial Park’s greenspace and trail maintenance. The fee system also provides a platform for those who visit the Park that are not taxpayers in Houston to contribute to the Park’s upkeep.

Where are the Pay-to-Park Spots?

Paid parking, $1 for three-hour increments, uses City of Houston meters. Users can pay with a credit card, cash, or pay-by-app via ParkHouston. Parking meters are active 5:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. daily in the following areas:

  • Eastern Glades Parking Lot
  • Golf Course Parking Lot
  • Tennis Center Parking Lot
  • Fitness Center Parking Lot
