I love to walk and exercise at this location all the time. It's a safe and kid friendly environment. Also a great place to just sit and watch the boats go by or sunrise/sunset.

Best few in Memphis of the Mississippi River!! Great place for a walk- and perfect for all different kinds of events- or just to play around on a Sunday afternoon

Basically just a running path along the river, gorgeous sunsets but hardly a piece of shade can be found - take a hat.

I enjoyed the park. Beautiful views and great workout stations. The statute of Tom Lee is great. It is worth knowing his story.

This park is the site of many events, especially Memphis in May activities. It no longer occurs, but the Sunset Symphony was a site to see at the park. Great views of the Mississippi River, Memphis Bridge and Arkansas.

Great park with a paved trail for running/walking. Lots of various markers throughout with bits of history form the river. Enjoyable place to get a run in.

Tom Lee Park is always a lovely place to visit, I particularly enjoy the park in May during the Memphis in May festivities.

We drove a long way to Memphis for Graceland, but came specifically when we could go to the BBQ Festival. We had a handicapped person with us so we got parking closer to the festival (the local police and City workers were great getting us...More

Absolutely! There were many picnic benches and if you take a blanket you can relax right by the river.
