The park is nice and very peaceful. Be careful in the evening as lately there have been armed robberies in the area.

We went as a group of 50 on the coach ~ naturally because that is where Elvis went! It was wonderful to imagine him enjoying this lovely place ~ we could see where the picture we have of him came from. Absolute must!

we toured and had a grand time again this year. new sights and visited old favorites. The food, the cultural highlights, as well as having family in Memphis all help to round out one grand time once again. Loved it!

My pup loves hanging out at the off leash dog park. Occasionally there is an owner who isn't paying attention to their dog's bowel movements, which is annoying. But overall friendly owners, good amount of room for running and playing.
