Parking meters proposed in parts of Memorial Park


HOUSTON – The Memorial Park Conservancy has proposed installing parking meters in part of the park to generate additional revenue for maintenance.

The proposal calls for metered parking in about a quarter of Memorial Park -- near the golf course, tennis courts, swimming pool and the new Eastern Glades.

The remaining parking spots will continue to be free.

The metered parking has been in the works for years. Paid parking at the park was approved by Houston City Council in 2015.
