Recommended by our taxi driver, we went to LaFayettes which I would highly recommend if you like live music and fabulous burgers! Great relaxed atmosphere great venue. This area is more up market than Beale Street.

I'd give it a 4 for folks who are yearning to just be outside. I went to see the bike sculpture gate, being a new car-for-bike-trader, and in search of all things bike and trail. Good for picnics, ride, walk, greenery. Art Museum in same complex. City bus system serves at least 3 sides of the park.

Been enjoying the park for 25+ years. My children attended Saturday School & Summer Camp at the Memphis College of Art located in Overton Park. Very enjoyable to play Frisbee, walk, read while they were in class. It is great they are working so diligently to preserve the outdoors space in the heart of the city.

Overton Park has come along way from what it was when I was a kid. I enjoy seeing it's artistic statues and the new editions to it. It's easy on the eyes coming off I-240 and it's wonderful to walk around despite noise from traffic.

I run in this park weekly, and I go to free shows at the Levitt shell throughout the summer and fall. This park is fabulous. Plenty of green space, nice dog park, great trails, and the museum is also located here. Plus the Memphis College of Art adds a nice visual. I can't say enough about this place, as I... More

Essentially this is a sad little park with a cute little entrance - not worth going out of your way for.

Overton park is a wonderful destination. I found the grounds to be immaculate and they were beautifully landscaped and designed. There are several points of interest in the park. The entrance itself was beautiful. For art lover's the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art located within the park is a must see attraction. It was the concert area that drew me.... More

Very nice and well maintained park just how you would like. Famous for where Elvis was first 'really' discovered. Lots of history here. Check it out.
