What is there to do?

Open year round from 6am - 7pm is the increibly popular Mud Island River Park, which is found the heart of the mighty Mississippi River and it's just a short walk from downtown Memphis.

It's at Mud Island River Park where you can see the new and very impressive 50-ft "MEMPHIS" sign (don't forget those cameras, it makes for a great photo opportunity!), as well as an impressive scale model of the Lower Mississippi River, AND you also get to enjoy fantastic views of the Memphis skyline. 

To really gain an understanding of the Mississippi River's incredibly important role and influence over Memphis, don't miss the free Mud Island Riverwalk experience. This is where the scale model really can be appreciated along the riverwalk which spans five city blocks and is marked with a number of cities, bridges and historic markers to give visitors perspective on the river and its people. 

There is also plenty of park space for you to just enjoy time as a family! Relax, spend the day enjoying a picnic, or playing games, or just taking in the beautiful sights of the Memphis skyline and Mississippi River!

C'mon kids it's park time and we LOVE a good old fashioned park day out!
