Houston is an active city, and our residents are a true testament to that! According to a recent report from website WalletHub, Houston ranks 42 out of 100 in their annual list of the best and worst cities in America for active lifestyles. One of the best things about living at our Montrose apartments are the nearby parks, which Houston has many of. (Our Montrose apartment community also got a recent update to our 24-hour fitness center, complete with brand-new cardio equipment, free weights and more to make your workouts from home much easier.)
We are so lucky to have two of the city’s best parks so close to our Houston apartments: Buffalo Bayou Park and Spotts Park, which is located between Memorial Drive and Waugh. Both offer many activities, ample green space and are easily accessibly from Jackson Hill.
Our close proximity to them both makes Buffalo Bayou and Spotts two of our favorites in the entire city. Buffalo Bayou Park is one of the country’s great urban green spaces, offering 160-acres stretching from Shepherd Drive to Sabine Street, close to downtown Houston. The recently renovate park is one of Houston’s most popular and fit-friendly locations boasting numerous running and biking trails, beautiful downtown skyline views, and the stairs to take your cardio up a notch and more.
Buffalo Bayou Park has so many unique components to it, like The Lee & Joe Jamail Skatepark, a free and open-to-the-public 30,000-square-foot-in-ground facility and the popular two-acre Johnny Steele Dog Park that Houston dog-lovers can’t get enough of. Located at Allen Parkway and Montrose Boulevard, the dog park offers shade structures, water fountains, a pond and more. Did we already mention that our Montrose apartments are pet-friendly and in a super walkable Houston neighborhood? If you have a pet, we think you’ll love our Montrose neighborhood.
You’ll also find Spotts Park in the heart of Houston on 16.24 acres boasting one of the city’s most popular outdoor destinations. The multi-use park offers basketball and volleyball courts, a children’s playground and walking and running trails. You’ll often see pickup games, Houston Marathon training, workout classes, picnics, outdoor birthday parties and more here.
Not only are we close to so many parks and Houston fitness studios, we are located near the brand-new Buffalo Heights H-E-B, which is perfect for all your grocery shopping needs for fresh, healthy meals. Don’t miss their Healthy Living section with vitamins, supplements, bulk food and more to keep your healthy lifestyle on track.
