Fodor's Review

Overton Park houses the popular 70-acre Memphis Zoo, which includes a 9-acre Cat Country and Primate Canyon. In total, there are about 3,500 animals here, representing over 500 species. Don't miss giant pandas Ya Ya and Le Le. The Northwest Passage features polar bears, seals, and sea lions. The zoo has some nice eateries, shops, fountains and a farm discovery center.

Overcrowded The beautiful greensward is being overrun by visiting cars, who aren't aware of ample free parking in surrounding neighborhood streets. The zoo is pleasant enough, but they have no regard for the park f which they are a part.
