Official Position of Park Friends Inc.

Park Friends Inc. has posted a "Position on Retaining and Enhancing Overton Park and the Overton Park Forest, more commonly known as The Old Forest or Old Growth Forest."

The Memphis Zoo and PFI both refer to the 17.5 acres of fenced forest as "the Zoo's land." This is an easy mistake to make, given that this public parkland is currently closed to the public. We want to remind everyone that this land (and the forest growing on it) is still owned by the City of Memphis and its citizens.

Sounds like PFI got sucker punched by the Zoo. Let us all learn a good lesson.
