I went there basically to take a picture and see the place where Elvis had his first concert however I was really pleasantly surprised. The grounds were beautiful, lots of room to park and a free concert just happened to be playing when we arrived...More

My friends and I were visiting and there was a concert and food trucks - nice place to chill out and listen to some music. Cool to learn that Elvis played his first concert here.

The free concert series here during the summer is amazing. I hope the people of Memphis can appreciate how fortunate they are to have the support of weekly, or more often, concerts from top-rate artists. If you live in Memphis and haven't been, GET OUT...More

What a magical place! Too bad there are only 50 free concerts. The place to be June thru October. Have seen great local Memphis bands and internationally known groups such as Nora Jones, Roseanne Cash and St Paul and the Broken Bones.
