Memorial Park Conservancy
A percentage of the proceeds from the Houston Half Marathon & 10K go to support the work of the Memorial Park Conservancy.
Memorial Park Conservancy is engaged in a wide range of activities to preserve the park’s native habitat, and at the same time, ensure the enjoyment of Memorial Park by the public.
The Conservancy’s 30-member volunteer Board of Directors works in partnership with the City of Houston Parks and Recreation Department, Houston Parks Board and other organizations. Houston City Council approved the park’s Master Plan in 2004. The Conservancy is working to make the Master Plan a reality through fund raising, education programs and volunteer activities.
Memorial Park Conservancy is dedicated to the preservation of the native habitat of Memorial Park for future generations; to the public use, enjoyment and education in accordance with conditions of the conveyance to the city by the Hogg family; and to the on-going support of the Houston Parks Department.
