  • It is a nice park. But you don't have to make a special detour for. You can walk but watch out for the poison ivy!! Stay on the path and do not walk between the plants. The large lotus pond is very beautiful. There are a lot of living and stuffed animals.

  • Clean picnic tables. Ticks. A very nice lady working the backyard area (they feed critters at lunch if you want to watch). But nothing inspiring. Some of the tracks are too rough for a normal stroller... You'll regret bringing one, because sometimes they dead end into gravel. You either press on and hope for the best or turn around and walk a mile back. The welcome center with the stuffed critters is nice.
  • I've enjoyed this place since I was a kid. My children like it so much, we've had their birthday party there!
  • Beautiful place. I wish there were picnic tables to sit at.
  • Beautiful!! 3 entire miles of trails and loved the geese.
  • Lived in Memphis for years and had never been. Went for a wedding last week to this beautiful park. Gorgeous location with great helpful staff!
