    This is a great park to relax and study in. It gets really crowded but you can find quiet spots.

    Things to do at Overton Park: bring your dog, throw a frisbee, see some music at the Shell, check out the Brooks and the Zoo, accidentally get involved in a drum circle.

    I love to go longboarding at Overton. I always take my American Bulldog to the dog bark when we're in the mood for a good time!
