Our Galleria apartments in Houston exude luxury inside and out, but one of the best parts of our community is our ideal and central Houston location. You can enjoy the perfect Tanglewood date night, spend the day shopping in Uptown Houston, or do plenty of other things to keep you busy, all within a short distance while calling 1900 Yorktown home base.
Now that summer is here and warmer temperatures are calling for outdoor adventures, you’ll love the fact our Galleria apartments are only 3.4-miles away from one of Houston’s most popular parks, Memorial Park. Memorial Park is known as “the largest urban park in Texas,” and there is always something going on there.
Enjoy A Perfect Day At Memorial Park
Our Houston Galleria apartments are a quick 3.5-miles away from Memorial Park, making a delightful afternoon jog or bike ride easier than ever, and one of the top things our residents enjoy in their spare time. (If working out outside isn’t your thing, our on-site fitness center is open 24/7 for you to enjoy.)
No matter the weather, you’ll almost always see a bunch of people running, walking or biking around the popular park. The 3-mile loop is one of the most trafficked outdoor running spots in all of Houston, making it an ideal spot to exercise, or even a meeting spot with friends to get in a good sweat session together. There is also a huge socialization aspect of Memorial Park, where people gather and meet new friends, or even join running clubs or sign up for the Houston Marathon together.
Read more about things to do at Memorial Park, including swimming, softball fields, sand volleyball courts, tennis courts (you can even rent racquets), and so much more.
Parking is usually pretty easy, unless you hit peak workout hours around 5-6p, but there is plenty or parking to choose from. If you’re looking for a place to meet up with friends, the stretch deck is a great spot.
Memorial Park has 4 million visitors annually, making it one of Houston’s most popular parks.
Check out Memorial Park's event calendar to see all the fun, year-round events held at the park, or hit up the golf course or driving range while you’re there. Memorial Park houses Memorial Park Golf Course, which is such a great course to have in the middle of the city and close to our Galleria apartments.
