Looking for a blooming, nature-lovers paradise just outside the buzz of Houston’s center streets?

Welcome to Memorial Heights!

Proguard Storage is proud to have serviced the residents of this quaint residential area for almost 20 years.

Don’t get us wrong: we LOVE the action, hubbub, and energy of central Houston, but you can’t deny the simple, quiet beauty of a neighborhood like Memorial Heights. Smiles are bigger, streets are wider, and parks are plentiful!

Here’s a list of our favorite attractions and hotspots in the area: please tell us which spots you’ve visited in the comments below.


1: Memorial Park: Challenge yourself with over 30 miles of hiking trails, spend a quiet afternoon on the grass, or become a “citizen scientist” and track wildlife sightings!

2: Buffalo Bayou Park: With an amazing collection of unique experiences, including boat tours, audio guided adventures, and an unforgettable journey to Houston’s first underground reservoirs, you can count on an awesome Sunday in the park.

3: The Lee and Joe Jamail Skate Park: Strap on those wheels and get ready for the adrenaline rush. Catch some air at this FREE outdoor attraction. Not much of a skater? Bring your lunch and watch the “dudes” do their thing.

4: Downtown Aquarium: This isn’t your average aquarium: ever took a train through an exhibit? Dined amongst breathtaking aquatic life? Ogled at the rare white tiger? Experience all this, and more, at the  Downtown Aquarium.

5: Glenwood Cemetery: History buffs, this one’s for you. The century-old cemetery has been the final resting place of governors, presidents, country-shaping historical figures, and countless other influential figures whose tombstones are testament to their amazing accomplishments. Might we recommend a visit to Ogun Art + Wine restaurant afterwards to lighten your mood?
