Memorial Park/Washington Avenue is a corridor stretching from the northern edge of downtown on the east to Loop 610 on the west. It includes many of Houston’s most historic sites such as Memorial Park, one of the city’s primary environmental assets located on the former grounds of Camp Logan, a World War I Army training camp. Residential areas, in the west, adjacent to the park, are rapidly redeveloping with high end single-family homes. The eastern end of the area includes First and Sixth Wards, political geographic units, which date from the 19th Century. Sixth Ward contains the city’s best Victorian era buildings. Interstate 10 creates a barrier on the northern boundary.
