One of the oldest and most beautiful areas of Houston lies in Memorial, home to The Villages. These are quiet, verdant communities within the Spring Branch Independent School District and home to some of the most exquisite architecture in the city.
Several beautiful parks follow the shores of Buffalo Bayou, including the 1,466 acre Memorial Park, site of the Memorial Arboretum and Nature Center. the Seymour Lieberman Exercise Trail, tennis. softball, cycling, running trails and golf. Life in the Memorial area has been enhanced by the addition of City Centre, a "vibrant, self-contained, pedestrian community of sophisticated retail, elegant dining, luxurious brownstone lofts, the Hotel Sorella, open air plazas, and beautifully designed green spaces".
The Energy Corridor and its vast oil and gas campuses sit at the western end of Memorial Drive. Access to anything and everything Houston has to offer from the Memorial area is easily accomplished with it's proximity to the Westpark Tollway, Beltway 8, Loop 610, Westheimer Road, Memorial Drive, and I-10.
