  • It's one of the most beautiful parks in the city. VERY crowded though. There are more quiet spots if your more of the sit with a book type of person. Beautiful nature trails though my suggestion would be if you aren't looking for other things lol to stay on the main road of the nature walk (the paved road) or the trail just next to the paved road until they finish revamping everything. Cute dog park, the museum is still there so far. They have exhibits from the Memphis college of arts that studies there. Right now I believe they are doing an exhibit on Fashion using African prints and fabrics. Early morning is the most peaceful to me.
  • This was such a fun park to visit with my family! My two boys are toddlers and they loved the play area! There were lots of things for them to climb on, slide down, and explore. There is also a nice little pond with a walking trail right by the playground.
  • My son loves it here. He throws a fit when he has to leave. The only problem we ever had was when a little kid was pushing my son’s (1 y.o.) head on the bars. We usually go when the bigger kids are at school where we don’t have this problem any more. Also it’s so shady it is chilly there only go when it’s warm to keep him out of the sun
  • Overton Park is the jewel of Memphis! There are many cultural amenities here including the Brooks Museum and the Levitt Shell. There's also a super playground for children as well as a wide open greensward great for running and playing. My only complaint is the Memphis Zoo which continues to bully the other attractions in the park and encroach on the greensward and the irreplaceable old growth forest.
  • I live fairly close to this park and often visit to relax, cycle, or go for a walk. There's allot to see and do near the park and the park itself is very open and safe. There are usually a good number of people here but it never feels crowded. The walking trails are peaceful and the dog park is nice. There are also fences around the dog park and playground for peace of mind.
