This is very nice nature center. Large, clean, lots of buildings and gazebos to sit and rest. The most amazing huge lotus pond with gigantic flowers. Truly an amazing board walk thru the lotus pond. Interactive things in main building for children. Nice walking trails.

A nice place to take a walk and have a picnic lunch. The nature center was well-maintained and the staff were very friendly. We enjoyed seeing the live animals.

We've been members for years and frequent the Lichterman Nature Center often but our most recent visit was a disappointment... We picked up sandwiches and planned a picnic and brought our GPS to get the new geocaches there. We checked in with the desk to provide our membership card and request the sheet of coordinates for the geocaches (they don't... More

The nature center is an oasis bordered by commercial, school and residential properties. The idea of saving this space for viewing nature and learning in museum setting is genius. Trails around the main pond are well maintained. However if one strays beyond the paved trails you will encounter barricades of fallen trees and bridges marked as unsafe to cross. On... More

It is nice enough park, but it isn't worth traveling out of your way to visit. The staff is friendly, the restrooms were clean, there are some nice animal displays inside. I went on Tuesday when there was no fee, I would have been highly disappointed if I had paid to enter. The paths are short, and there is not... More

I live within a mile of Lichterman Nature Center. They have beautiful educational facilities and equally stunning grounds. Sixty-five acres of lake, meadow, forest and trails. A real delight, but...of immense irritation are their limited hours (Tues.-Thurs. 10-3; Fri.-Sat. 10-4; closed Sun. and most holidays). Don't count on taking an evening stroll after work...even when it's light until after 8:30... More

There for a banquet. Very organized layout. Would be great for an outdoor experience. Parking is not a problem. It is a little out of the way for tourists, however locals should visit.

Nature trails and Interpretive center, very well maintained. The lotus-covered lake is beautiful. Plentiful free parking and helpful employees/volunteers.

Lichterman is a gem of a park in the middle of Memphis. Very peaceful, wonderful trails and ponds, tons of birds to see and hear. A great combination of education and fun.
