Mindfulness Walks

Mindfulness walks are based on the Japanese concept of shirin-yoku, or “forest bathing.” These short and slow walks are to help participants take advantage of the physical, mental, and emotional benefits from spending time in by nature.

While visitors may choose to bring a mindfulness approach to any of their visits to Overton Park at any time, these facilitated Mindfulness Walks are an opportunity to hold space and time in community.

Dates: Second Friday of May, June, and July

Time: 7:30 AM

Where:  Rainbow Lake Playground Kiosk

Overton Park Conservancy is the nonprofit organization that has been caring for Memphis’s central green space since 2012. With the generous support of our community, we work each day to make the park a beautiful and welcoming place for all Memphians, as well as a valuable source of urban habitat for wildlife.

The Conservancy must raise roughly 85% of our budget each year from people like you who care about the many things Overton Park has to offer. A gift of any amount helps us maintain and improve the park.
