Located just minutes from the city amenities of Memphis,
the town of Collierville offers both exciting adventures and
peaceful retreats. Currently, the town offers 20 parks, 30
athletic fields, 10 tennis courts, greenbelt trails, play
structures, an active community center and theater, as well
as much more.
Unfortunately, many residents are unable to fully enjoy
the attractions of their town due to suffering from neck
pain and headaches. So what could you be doing to stay
active and have fun in Collierville if you didn't have pain?
1. Cycle the Greenbelt
Grab your bike (or sneakers if you prefer)! The entire
Greenbelt system has over 60 miles of trails and sidewalks
connecting parks, schools, and neighborhoods throughout
our community. Bike along the Wolf River and Nonconnah
Creek taking in the natural vegetation and protected
wildlife habitats. There is easy Greenbelt access for most
2. Play Disc Golf at Hinton Park
Looking for something new to try? The newest addition to
Collierville Parks and Recreation is Hinton Park. The
nearly 110 acres includes two 9 hole Disc Golf courses. If
you can throw a Frisbee, you can enjoy this sport. It's a
healthy lifelong activity, easy to learn, and accessible to
people of all ages and fitness levels.
3. Fish at Herb Parson's Lake
Bring a picnic lunch, fishing pole, and some chicken livers
if you want to snag a catfish. This 177 acre fishing lake
includes bait shop and rental boats. In addition to catfish,
fishermen will find a variety of fish including perch,
sunfish, bluegill, crappie, and large mouth bass.
4. Shelby Farms Stables
Hit the trails of Shelby Farms park with a trail guide!
During a one hour guided ride through the forest you
may come across deer, geese, rabbits, raccoon, and hawks.
This is a great experience with highly trained staff if you
are new to riding or just getting back in the saddle
(especially a hiatus due to injury).
5. Take a Boat out at Shelby Farms
Enjoy beautiful Hyde Lake, part of the new expansion of
Shelby Farms Park Conservancy. In the heart of this
unique urban park, you can rent canoes, kayaks, and stand
up paddle boards during the spring and summer months
from the boat house. Great fun and exercise for all ages!
6. Downtown Memphis Attractions
We may be in the suburbs, but the big city isn't far away.
How long has it been since you have been a tourist in your
own city? Walk along the river, explore the pyramid, take
in some great food, music, or a basketball game. Whether
it is scenery, history, or night life you will find it a plenty
when you explore downtown. . . by foot, trolley, bike, or
horse drawn carriage.
7. Walking Tour of Town Square
We can't complete this list without the trademark of the
town. . .a walking tour of the 1.33 acre Historic Town
Square. Climb aboard the executive train car that has
many original fixtures and unaltered since the 1940's.
The square appears untouched by with turn of the
century walkways, quaint shops, restaurants, cast iron
fences, and charming bandstand.
