Look at our website for specific info: https://wmst.swimtopia.com.
Please remember that any exterior change to your home requires approval
from the Homeowners Association prior to performing the improvement
and/or addition. You can find the governing rules and application process
on the Association website at www.westmemorial.org or by contacting
management at email@example.com.
We are seeking volunteers for several upcoming projects. More
homeowner participation would be appreciated. Please email
firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or questions.
Animals that are not properly restrained pose a threat to all our residents.
While you may know your pet is friendly, an animal running at someone
who is walking by is very scary for that person. Many children are afraid of
animals and become frightened, which could result in the child getting
hurt trying to avoid the animal.
Veterinary Public Health (formerly called Harris County Animal Control)
advises that “All dogs and cats must be kept under restraint while in the
unincorporated areas of Harris County, Texas. The custodian of a dog or
cat is not authorized to have, harbor or keep any unlicensed dog or cat,
nor to allow any dog or cat to become a stray.”
Restraint is defined as “the control of a dog or cat under the following
1. When it is controlled by a line or leash not more than six (6) feet in
length, if the line or leash is held by a human being, who is capable of
controlling or governing the dog or cat in question.
2. When it is within a fully enclosed vehicle.
3. When it is on the premise of the custodian and the animal does not
have access to sidewalk or street.”
While it may be nice to have your animal out in the yard while you work
or play, it is against the law, unless the animal is properly restrained.
Let’s all help keep our community a safe and comfortable place for all
our residents by being responsible pet owners. This will not only protect
anyone who may be walking or bicycling in the area, but also the pet
owner who could be held legally responsible or possibly sued for failing
to properly restrain their pet. Please carry a bag when walking dogs and
pick up your dog’s bowl movements and keep our community clean.
Do not hesitate to call Harris County Animal Control at 281-999-3191, if
you see animals that are roaming the neighborhood unleashed.

2 HOURS OF HOUSTON TX
It’s summertime and that means it’s time to get out the camping gear, fishing
poles and sun screen! There’s no better way to relax than to sit outside of the
tent you just set up and breathe in.
SAM HOUSTON NATIONAL PARK: NEW WAVERLY, TX
This gorgeous national park offers tent pads, picnic tables, parking spurs
for trailers, lantern posts, grills, potable water, and toilets. Hiking is very
popular in the spring when the climate is milder. Water activities get
going in the summer on Double Lake with canoes and paddleboats that
can be rented from the park. Deer is the most popular game animal in the
Sam Houston National Forest, with squirrels second. Quail and dove are
found around newly regenerated timberland. For the water sportsman,
fishing and duck hunting can be enjoyed on area lakes and streams.
BRAZOS BEND: NEEDVILLE, TX
This park has got plenty of options for activities during your stay. Lots
of trails, some of which are even wheelchair friendly, wind through the
woods and bring you to the water’s edge of the lake. Just make sure you’ve
brushed up on your alligator safety because they’re not uncommon in
certain areas of the park. Aside from walking or biking the trails, there’s
also the option of horseback riding on one of the multiuse trails.
LAKE CONROE KOA: MONTGOMERY, TX
Here’s a KOA that’s got your back this weekend if you’re trying to relax
to the max. Bring your RV here, up to 80’ and enjoy the cable tv, wifi,
hookups and pools to lounge in all day. If you haven’t got an RV, don’t
feel left out! You can stay in one of the 35 cabins that have bathrooms and
a full kitchen. Tent campers are welcome as well. Visitors can explore the
area and find the nearby golf course, restaurants and the lake has plenty
of recreational activities.
GALVESTON ISLAND STATE PARK: GALVESTON, TX
This park is a freaking island, so as far as camping goes you really can’t
go wrong with this option. There is hiking, biking, fishing, bird watching
and lots more. One of the many things that make this island campground
unique is the paddle trails they boast. Though, if you decide to go on these,
you’ll need to bring your own canoe or kayak because they don’t rent them
out. Outside the campground, there is an educational theme park called
Moody Gardens. Bring the kids along and there’ll be plenty of nature for
people of various interests to enjoy and participate in during the stay.
STEPHEN F. AUSTIN STATE PARK: SAN FELIPE, TX
This lovely State Park has six miles of hiking trails that are open to bikers
as well. Campsites have full hookups and some sites even hold up to 60
people. Stephen F. Austin State Park also holds events for youth over the

HUNTSVILLE STATE PARK: HUNTSVILLE, TX
Here’s a State Park full of relaxation. You can go and unwind in the shade
of the trees and go fishing from one of the fishing piers or off your boat
or canoe. There are watercraft for rent including paddleboats, canoes and
kayaks. There’s even a bird blind to enjoy watching the local feathered
friends who flit about the forest.
SEA RIM STATE PARK: SABINE PASS, TX
This park has 4,000 acres of marsh and a boardwalk going through so you
can enjoy without getting your feet wet. Campers, cabin-dwellers and
RV-goers all have a place here at Sea Rim State Park. Feel free to fish from
the boardwalk or explore with your rented or own canoe or kayak. Sea
Rim also has the option to explore its grounds from home via their virtual
tour of the trails map.
NORTHLAKE RV RESORT: HOUSTON, TX
Come to Northlake RV Resort if you’re looking for a nice and relaxing place
to kick your feet up and breathe deeply. This resort has got a massive list of
amenities so it’s ridiculous to try to write them all here, but if you’re interested
you should definitely check out their website. Some of the best aspects of
this resort are the park-wide wifi, the stocked fishing lakes and the fire pits.
This place allows for extended stays and weekend trips, so regardless of your
plans you’ll definitely have plenty of options right next to home!
TRADERS VILLAGE RV RESORT:
Traders Village is a short drive for you and a wonderful place to stay. The
electric and water hookups are free, there is a pool for swimming, and
there’s wifi. Bring your picnic supplies so you can eat outside at the picnic
tables while enjoying the weather. You’re welcome to lounge around
and enjoy relaxing or you can go next door to the flea market that hosts
events and activities for visitors.
ALLSTAR RV RESORT: HOUSTON, TX
At AllStar RV Resort, they’ve got anything you could need while camping
in your RV and more. If you’ve got yourself a Fido who wanders himself
into a smelly situation, there’s a dog washing station here for your (and
your nose’s) convenience. Take advantage of the swimming pool, the
computer room, the recreation room and more. There’s also a stadium
nearby for baseball fans to watch their games.
ESCAPE THE PAVEMENT: HOUSTON, TX
There are actually two camping sites associated with Escape the Pavement
near Houston. There are four aspects to Escape the Pavement: Heyne
Ranch, Lake Houston Wilderness Park, Blackwood Land Institute and Big
Thicket National Preserve. It’s actually super great, because no matter
your flavor preference of outdoors experience, this place has got you. One
is a ranch for you and your horse to enjoy pastures, rivers and wooded
trails; perfect for a day trip. You’ll also love the bonfires on the beach! One
of their campgrounds has over 4,000 acres of forest and a creek that you
can go ahead and explore the trails winding around through it on your
horse, bike or on foot. The other area available for camping is restricted to
primitive camping only because it is located on a preserve. Lastly, the land
institute is a great educational place for kids and adults alike. Check out
their website if any of these interest you and start planning a trip!

ideas on Lake Somerville. There are picnic areas for campers or day hikers
to sit, enjoy the view, and munch on their sandwiches. Birdwatching,
volleyball, hiking and horseback riding are popular pass times. Overall,
this is a wonderful place to relax and play in the great outdoors.

West Memorial | August 2020 7
SHELDON LAKE STATE PARK: HOUSTON, TX
Sheldon Lake State Park is open to fishing and wildlife observation. You’re
welcome to take your boat out for a ride or fish off the banks, so long as
you’re wary of the alligators inhabiting the park. The learning center has
tons of activities for the kids that you can sign up for and enjoy. Some
of these activities are more hands-on, like catch and release fishing
and some are visual demonstrations like green building technologies
or smart wildscape demonstrations for gardening and using beautiful
BASTROP STATE PARK: BASTROP, TX
A forest with a history and personality, the Lost Pines located on Bastrop
State Park used to be a luscious and well-groomed forest before being
damaged by floods and fires. Now, the forest’s recovery is just as beautiful
a sight. The story itself is a perfect reason to visit, but Bastrop also has
swimming, biking, hiking and geocaching as an incentive. If you’re
looking to exploring the surrounding area, Bastrop also has museums
and restaurants to check out on your vacation!
BUESCHER STATE PARK: SMITHVILLE, TX
Experienced bicyclists looking for a challenge will enjoy the bike trails
here at Buescher State Park. This park connects with Bastrop State Park via
a paved road with great views of the area. Unfortunately, there is currently
no swimming in this park, but if you adventure the short commute to the
nearby Bastrop you’ll find a nice swimming pool for visitors like yourself.
Lastly, if you’re hankering to float along in a tandem kayak or a canoe, you
can do so through rental at Buescher State Park.
LOCKHART STATE PARK: SMITHVILLE, TX
This park has a pool, grounds for camping, trails to hike and a nine-hole
golf course among many other things that allow you to get active! If you
want to go fishing but don’t want to lug around your equipment, you’re
in luck! The park has fishing equipment available for guests to use during

church event, there is a Group Recreation Hall that also has a kitchen
capable of holding up to 75 people at once.

If you’re looking for a beautiful place to host a family reunion, try looking
here! Campsites have full hookups and there are rentable screen shelters

your way in and out you can stop at the souvenir shop that sells treats
LAKE LIVINGSTON KOA: ONALASKA, KOA
Here’s a popular KOA that you’ll probably need to make a reservation for
ahead of time to ensure you get yourself a spot for the night. There is
a beautiful pool with lounge chairs for you to relax and sink into while
soaking in the sun. Your kids will enjoy the playground. If you love
enjoying the great outdoors and its many inhabitants, there is a local bald
eagle named Eddie who supposedly flies around the area frequently.
There is also fishing, a pavilion to admire the scenery in, and is known for
the sunset views.
VILLAGE CREEK STATE PARK: LUMBERTON, TX
Campers interested in sleeping in tents, RVs or cabins are welcome here.
You’ll be able to go swimming, fishing, biking, hiking and more with your
friends and family. If you prefer to learn about your surroundings and its
history rather than being emerged in the real deal, there are programs
and museums aplenty for you to observe and glean information from
during your stay.
PALMETTO STATE PARK: GONZALES, TX
This little oasis has a multitude of thirsty plants that cannot live in other
areas due to the lack of water. The park is named for the dwarf palmettos
that grow beneath the trees. As a visitor, you can also enjoy the copious
amounts of flowing and stagnant water by swimming, tubing, fishing
and canoeing. Those interested in keeping dry will enjoy bird watching,
hiking, geocaching or staring at the dwarf palmettos.
VICTORIA COLETO CREEK LAKE KOA: VICTORIA, TX
Come to this RV and tent camping site to enjoy the lovely wildflowers,
scattered oaks, birds and other wildlife. There is a pond with catfish that you
can relax on the edge of while fishing and other areas for freshwater fishing.

weather should you decide to vacation here! There are plenty of places in the
area for you to check out, making it perfect for both short or extended stays.

Alzheimer’s Care, Support and Research. The Alzheimer’s Association®
is invitingKaty, Fulshear, Cypress, Richmond and other West Houston
area residents to join the fight to end Alzheimer’s by participating in the
Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s. The Walk will take place
on Saturday, September 26, 2020,at La Centerra Shopping Center in Katy,
Texas. On walk day, participants will honor those affected by Alzheimer’s
disease with Promise Flowers during the poignant Promise Garden
Ceremony - a moving display of hope to represent the personal reasons
participants join together to fight Alzheimer’s. This year’s challenge is
whether we will be able to come together of 1,300 walkers or not. So
we have two plans - Plan A is to have the big event. Plan B is to have
a virtual event that may be held in various neighborhoods, businesses,
schools and other smaller communities where people can come together
and Walk to End Alzheimer’s. In addition to the 3-mile walk, participants
will enjoy a fun-filled experience that includes valuable information,
celebrations, entertainment, corporate sponsors and so much more.
Participants can join a team or register to walk as an individual at www.
alz.org/walk. Even though the office has been closed, the Alzheimer’s
Association has continued to offer support through various avenues than
before the stay-at-home order. The 24/7 Free Hotline can be a lifeline for
those who suffer from the disease and those who care for them, call
800-272-3900. Support Groups are meeting virtually, please check www.
alz.org for times and locations. Facebook Live sessions are held every
Wednesday at 11 AM. Find the live sessions and lots of other programs
and events on the Facebook page, “Alzheimer’s Association: Houston &
Southeast Texas Chapter.” Virtual classes are offered to cover many issues
each week. To join one of the virtual programs, please visit www.alz.org/
