Dog Run
“Great park in midtown to enjoy the outdoors. There are several small trails and a paved area for biking. There is a nice dog park for your furry friends to run around in!”

“Overton Park’s Old Forest -- 172 acres of old-growth forest that’s listed on the National Register of Historic Places. These days, the only traffic the wide road gets is from runners, walkers, and cyclists. Since it was designed for two-lane traffic, the path offers plenty of room to spread out, meaning runners don’t have to worry about being rolled over by cyclists. The paved road takes users in a circle around the forest -- past the Memphis Zoo, the East Parkway pavilion and playground, and more primitive running trails through the forest. If you run through those trails early enough in the morning, you might catch a glimpses of snakes, foxes, or even the infamous Midtown coyote.”
