PPoplar Estates Park has a 6970 Wolf River Blvd address, but you can't get to it off Wolf River Blvd. You have to enter the neighborhood and find your way to Poplar Estates Parkway to find the park. When I first moved to Memphis, about 5 years ago, I looked for this park and gave up, assuming the park was the greenway on the opposite site of Wolf River Blvd, which is quite nice too. But, don't be fooled. This charming little park is worth the extra effort to find it, not to mention the letterbox located there.
Take the path toward and past the playground toward the big open grassy field. walk all the way to the back of the grassy field, all the way to the back of the park, to the fence separating the park from the tennis courts on the other side of the fence. Turn right, follow this chain link fence along the back of the park. This chain link fence meets another chain link fence that ends about 4 steps to the right. Take those 4 steps, and then take about 20 more, and you will see the the start of another chain link fence. The box is located behind and to the right of the big tree next to the first post of the next fence, tucked in the roots.
