Overton Park is the “crown jewel” of Memphis and its Park System. The Park’s historic Old Forest State Natural Area, Greensward, Rainbow Lake, and surrounding areas are considered to be some of the most beautiful and pastoral settings in the city.
In late 2011, the city of Memphis entered into an agreement with Overton Park Conservancy to manage the Park. The OPC is dedicated to enhancing the amenities of the Park and improving the overall customer experience.
The Special Event & Rental Program was created to provide customers the privilege of reserving different areas of the Park for private or public usage for a certain date and time. Revenues earned by this program will support Overton Park Conservancy’s operating budget.
Please consider Overton Park for that special event or private function you are planning. If you would like to tour the Park to see the different areas that available to rent, or are interested in the rental rates, please call Susan Green, Director of Events and Volunteers, at (901) 214-5450.
