Overton Bark Park in Midtown!

by Your Key to Memphis Team

A much welcomed and anticipated new feature for Overton Park in Midtown Memphis is the new "Overton Bark". The Overton Park Conservancy's revitalization efforts include a feature that is sure to be enjoyed by many park visitors as well as their four-legged friends. This amazing dog park has handmade benches and dog obstacle courses made from fallen logs and shade trees. There are two gated playing sections for dogs to enter, one for large dogs and one for smaller dogs. If you or your dog get thirsty, both of you can get a drink at the same time at the green water stations, with one spout at normal fountain height and another near the ground. Take your dog to the "Overton Bark" in Midtown; you and your dog will have a wonderful time together!

Everyone had a wonderful time and it was great seeing Scott and Ashley all settled into their new house. Click Here to see photos from the party.
