bike, outdoor-adventures, run

Experience the river from the river, with a unique place to explore in Downtown Memphis.

A really fun spot to play and learn about the landscape of Memphis is Mud Island Park located right in the middle of the Mississippi River. To get there, you can take the sky bridge, walk, bike or even scooter. There is an available bike share so you can easily cruise over to the park. 

The park hosts two free concert series in the Mud Island Amphitheatre, and it is also just a great place to relax and people watch. You can kayak, play frisbee, or just chill out with a book in a hammock while the kiddos run and play. Guided paddleboard tours are available or join a yoga class with SUP here. There are several cafes on sight and the Mississippi River Park and Museum.

Natalie Proctor is what some would call a “Southern transplant” in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. She grew up in Memphis, Tennessee before attending the University of Arkansas to pursue a degree in advertising and public relations with a minor in marketing logistics. Natalie attributes her love of the outdoors to her parents always encouraging her to have a deep appreciation for nature and all that the world has to offer. As a family, they spent many years growing up going on camping trips, skiing, rafting, and traveling together. While Natalie loves the seasonal lifestyle in Jackson, she was ready to become a part of something bigger and challenge herself. She found Happy Active Family at the perfect time, upon meeting Caitlin and Thomas, and strives to help other families spend meaningful time together, just as she has been able to with her own.
