T.O. Fuller State Park
Open: Open all year
T.O. Fuller State Park was the first state park east of the Mississippi River open to African Americans and only the second in the nation. The park was later changed from Shelby Bluffs to T.O. Fuller State Park in 1942 in honor of Dr. Thomas O. Fuller who spent his life empowering and educating African Americans.
The park is located in Shelby County within the southern limits of the city of Memphis. The park encompasses a total of 1,138 acres with a diversity of wildlife. With its abundance of local flora and fauna from the Mississippi flood plains to its high and overshadowing bluff ridges makes this area an ideal place for the birdwatcher or outdoor extremist.
There's a lot to do and see at T.O. Fuller State Park! The 18-hole golf course is a par-72, 5,986-yd challenge. Grassy fields provide for outdoor games such as frisbee, ballgames, and other types of open-space activities. There is a softball field, basketball and tennis courts. Children's playground equipment is located near the picnic area. The Park has over 6 miles of hiking trails from moderate to rugged. There is also a nature center open during summer months and annual events and planned programs to enjoy!
