When people mention the Memorial, they are referring to both the street, Memorial Drive which runs from just inside the 610 loop on the west side to Hwy 6, and the area around it. It is one of the most beautiful areas and runs parallel to Interstate 10 on the south side of the highway. There are very few residential leasing communities in this area as it is mostly free standing homes and more on the expensive side than not. Most of the area is zoned to Spring Branch I.S.D. known for their great schools and quality of education. The Memorial area is very scenic, highly wooded also and features a huge park. Memorial Park has a 3 mile jogging trail, bike & hike, golf course and tennis facilities, and a croquet court all just minutes from down town.
