The Midtown region of Memphis covers a significant part of the area and actually spans several neighborhoods, including Central Gardens to the south and Medical District to the west. Midtown has many cultural attractions and historical architecture, but your pooch will bark in excitement at the prospect of visiting Overton Park, not far from the Memphis Zoo. There’s an aptly named dog park, Overton Bark, within the park. Your mutt will be able to play in the 1.3-acre fenced area divided in two parts for small and large pooches. The locals love the place, so if you want to make a few new fur-iends, Overton Bark is your place to visit. There are plenty of dog-friendly cafes in the area not far from the park. Madison and Monroe Avenue are full of different eateries, which are happy to welcome leashed dogs at the outdoor tables, such as The Second Line or Local On The Square.
