  4. 4. Houstonians Speak Up to Renew Memorial Park In 2013, the Memorial Park Conservancy and its planning partners, Houston Parks and Recreation Department, and Uptown TIRZ, launched a citywide public input process to connect with current and future Memorial Park users. Multiple formats were used to offer all Houstonians opportunities to contribute their viewpoints, including large public open houses, small workshops, and 24/7 engagement through a Memorial Park Tomorrow website and social media presence. The input from all of these, have enabled the team to understand ways that people use the park now and would like to in the future. The following broad public priorities are the result: Access Accessibility is valued highly, including: entry points to the Park; connectivity with other parks and parts of the city, via foot, bike, car, and mass transit; and improved parking. Ease of facilities use. Balance Balance—between nature and recreation, and among the needs of all “users” (human and animal). COME ! WELWELEnhancement of Existing Character, Amenities Usage Preserve and enhance Memorial Park’s role as an “urban wilderness”. Upgrading existing amenities and add restrooms and drinking fountains. Safety Security Better safety/security at night and for families; safety for the various types of users; management of vehicle/bike/ pedestrian traffic. Communication Need for stronger communication, including: ample and clear signage and messaging about Park offerings, ongoing public input/ involvement. Long-term Sustainability Preservation and protection of flora and fauna; a resilient ecology; employment of sustainable practices; and “green” facilities. Individual Community Enrichment Easy to connect to other Houstonians as well as to the story of Houston, including: education programs; ways to experience the Park’s location; ways to socialize with others and feel sense of community.

  5. 5. Guiding Principles: TEND Memorial Park needs our care. Let’s be good stewards. MAGNIFY Memorial Park has a lot going for it. Let’s make those things more visible. OPTIMIZE Memorial Park’s parts are out of balance with each other. Let’s arrange them so the park can function optimally. RECONNECT Memorial Park is divided in many ways. Let’s make it whole and plug it into life in Houston. REVEAL Memorial Park holds stories relevant to all Houstonians. Let’s tell them to the world.

  16. 16. Berg Oliver’s preliminary assessment of areas negatively impacted by recent drought and hurricanes Legend Unaffected Areas Affected Areas VEGETATION: Preliminary Assessment 0’ 1000’ 2000’
  17. 17. By examining historical patterns of vegetation, soils, hydrology, and existing site conditions, Berg Oliver developed these preliminary recommendations for the park’s restoration strategy. Legend Pine, Hardwoods Forest Wet Prairie, Savanah Upland Prairie, Savanah Native Prairie Savanah/Forest Savanah Savanah/Prairie Unaffected Areas Initial Recommendations for Plant Community Restoration 0’ 1000’ 2000’

  19. 19. The design seeks to reconnect what is now a patchwork of ecological corridors. Continuous flows of water, wildlife, and plant communities will be restored through restoration of four restoration types: 1. Riparian forests along water ways 2. Pine/Hardwood Forests at park edges and in areas physically appropriate to forest restoration 3. Savannah landscapes in much of the rest of the park 4. Discrete Native Prairie near the center at the highest point on the site.

  20. 20. While road and rail networks are integral parts of Memorial Park and the park’s history and current use, they interfere with how the park functions as an ecological whole and how people and wildlife experience these ecological zones.

  34. 34. Wide and dense forested buffers at the edges of the park create a sense of immersion in landscape spaces along the more urbanized edges. A landscaped berm on northern edge at I-10 will help to buffer noise and pollution. Legend Riparian Forest Pine-Hardwood Forest Pine-Hardwood Savannah Native Prairie Naturalized Golf Course Wet Savannah and Pairie Bog Areas Ponds and Stream Corridors Highway and Neighborhood Buffers 0’ 1000’ 2000’
  35. 35. Currently separated from the park, this will become an iconic entry. It provides access from the west and the south to the Arboretum and the park beyond. This site will provide pedestrian and boating access to the bayou.
