Central Gardens is a small, residential community located in Memphis, Tennessee. It is roughly three miles southeast of the downtown area. It is a historic, residential neighborhood and was named a great 'Old House Neighborhood,' because of the beautiful and vintage architecture. Several of the houses themselves are historical landmarks and some are open to the public while others are available to rent for private events. Besides the beautiful, standalone, single-family homes, Central Gardens also has a local country club, several schools, churches, a national-chain grocery store, and a convenience store.

As a neighborhood with only one greenway, Central Gardens still doesn't feel too much like a strictly urban neighborhood. In 2008, the state of Tennessee has classified Central Gardens as a Level 3 Arboretum because of the neighborhood's plethora of large, old trees. To achieve Level 3 status, neighborhoods or sites need to have trees that are at least 80 years old and at least 90 different species of trees. So, despite the lack of greenways, Central Gardens has plenty of natural elements in the neighborhood. While walking, these amazing and protected trees will provide you and your pup shade on sunny days. Additionally, this community has plenty of maintained sidewalks so you and your furry friend will be safe from traffic.

The boundaries of Central Gardens include Union Avenue to the north, South Rembert Street to the east, York Avenue and Lamar Avenue to the south, and South Cleveland Street to the west.
