  • This was my first time at the Memphis Kiddie Park, bit it definitely won't be the last. My 4 little ones range in age from 2-7 and they totally loved it. Very affordable and lots of rides for kids. I would highly recommend if you are looking for things to do with kids under 50".
  • For the little ones, it's terrific. Nicely maintained, clean, with a number of shady spots, it has a staff of retirees and young adults who are friendly helpful and knowledgeable. There is also a miniature golf course on the grounds. There are park benches and picnic tables on which to rest or enjoy food. Tickets are valid from one year to the next, in case you buy a book of them and don't use them all.
