Memorial is a richly forested residential area complete with many large and popular shopping centers, such as Memorial City Mall, Town & Country Village and City Center. Bordered on the south by Buffalo Bayou, Memorial has multiple parks that are densely populated with runners, dog walkers and bikers on days where the heat isn't entirely unbearable. Notably, the Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center resides just across Gessner from Memorial City Mall. This large tower holds Memorial Hermann's headquarters and is considered one of the top ten most affordable hospitals in Texas.
Blue Willow Bookshop resides in the west portion of Memorial, and has been here since October 1996. Our merry bunch of opinionated booksellers reside all over the Houston area, with a concentration in West Memorial. Blue Willow is a neighborhood bookshop with outreach throughout the Houston area, and we welcome you to come browse our shelves for books, games, puzzles, stationery, and more. From East Memorial, we are a short drive down I-10. Turn left onto Dairy Ashford from the feeder, and turn left into the HEB shopping center from Dairy Ashford, just past the high school where you'll see a Wing Stop.
