Residents of Crestwood and Glen Cove enjoy a world-class 1508-acre public park next door that features Houston's first golf course (which is under going a massive renovation in preparation to be home to a PGA event in 2020), a recently expanded and improved soft jogging trail, along with hiking and biking trails, picnic grounds, ball fields, tennis courts, multiple children's playgrounds, a public swimming pool, an arboretum and more. Memorial Park is the largest inner-city park in America. Check out Park updates in the drop down menu to the left. Our neighborhood is in a great location, only a few miles from downtown Houston and easy access to all major thoroughfares.
In 1917, the United States leased a large tract of land from the well-known Hogg family, and it became Camp Logan, a sophisticated training camp for U.S. Army soldiers. Camp Logan operated as a military establishment and a charity hospital for several years before the sons of Texas Governor James Hogg regained control of the land. In 1925, the Hogg family conveyed to the City of Houston much of this property for the development of Memorial Park as a dedication to the memory of World War I soldiers.
