Memorial Park/Washington Corridor
Fresh-faced crowds swarm this eclectic mix of luxurious lounges, honky tonks, wine bars and some of the most-loved restaurants in the city. The strip, which stretches east from Memorial Park to Downtown, recently experienced a resurgence, as dilapidated properties were torn down and replaced with townhouses, mixed-use developments and high-energy hot spots.The Memorial Park/Washington Corridor is home to both upwardly mobile young professionals and families who prefer convenient access to downtown Houston. In the past, the area was host to mostly older bungalows, but modern townhomes are continually being built to accommodate the migration of young professionals to downtown Houston. The Western Corridor is also adjacent to Memorial Park, one of the largest urban parks in America. Dubbed "the largest urban park in Texas," Houston's Memorial Park, just inside Loop 610 at Woodway, includes Texas' top-rated municipal 18-hole golf course, as well as facilities for tennis, softball, swimming, track, croquet, volleyball, in-line skating, cycling, and a popular three-mile running course. Many contemporary and luxury homes are found on the eastern edge of the park, providing both a serene atmosphere and easy access to downtown Houston's amenities.
