Overton Park Tours

Overton Park

Offering the beautiful outdoors, music, and history, this 342 acre (138.4 hectare) public park is what Memphis is all about. A visit to Overton Park can provide you with a relaxing afternoon filled with whatever activities you desire. If you're in the mood to lounge in the sun, play a game of Frisbee, or have a picnic, head over to Greensward, one of the largest open areas (about 3 acres/1.2 hectares) in Memphis with no designated purpose other than outdoor recreation.

If you came to Memphis for the music, then be sure to check out the historic Shell Theatre, the site where Elvis Presley gave his first paid concert in 1954. Nature lovers should visit the Old Forest Arboretum, a forest tract and natural arboretum. Walk along its trails and see over 300 different kinds of plants, and 32 species of trees. Veterans Plaza, which contains memorials to the veterans of Memphis and Shelby County, is also worth checking out.

Overton Park is also home to the Memphis Zoo and a 9-hole golf course.
