Owner description: A serene wooded area in the middle of the bustling city of Memphis: great for hiking and biking.

Frisbee, cook-outs, playground, BBQ options all around the entrance to the city zoo and a few other cool places. Nice place to hang out and unwind between sites.

Besides the excellent Memphis Zoo, Overton Park is the site of the Brooks Museum of Art, which attracts excellent exhibits, and an art school. The wild part of the park is a remnant of old-growth southern hardwood forest that has never been logged over. Memphis has preserved this small area in spite of many challenges.

Great place to walk and stop off at the Brooks or the Zoo. Right in the heart of Midtown.

A very nice setting that frames the well-done Memphis Zoo and a better than average Brooks Museum of Art. However, be prepared to face possible safety concerns, open drug use and public sexual activity in this park.
