Tom Lee Park in Memphis, TN

357 Riverside Drive Memphis, TN 38103
Tom Lee Park is the perfect way to enjoy the natural beauty of the Memphis area and continually hosts a number of large-scale events in the area.

Running for about a mile and a half along the banks of the Mississippi River, there are few places to go for a better view of this historical river. The Mississippi River isn't the only big attraction the park offers though. Throughout the year there are also a number of large scale events, such as barbecue contests and jazz festivals that always bring out a friendly atmosphere and spark a great time at the park.

The park is fittingly named after area resident Tom Lee. It is said Tom Lee rowed a small boat through the currents of the Mississippi to save victims of a sinking steamboat, despite his inability to swim. Whether you're visiting the park for a day of outdoor fun, for one of its many festivals or simply to pay tribute to Tom Lee,  you're sure to find a great experience waiting.
