Located at the center of Collierville, Town Square is charming and picturesque, and its walkways make for a lovely stroll. During your walk through Town Square, you can enjoy some beautiful scenery, including an antique-style clock, cast-iron fences, and a reconstruction of a log cabin built and used during the antebellum period. In the spirit of the town’s history, the Collierville Depot and the Executive Train Car are located in the Town Square as well. These exhibits were both once fully functional, and their use dates back as far as the 19th century. Additionally, Town Square is home to a community bandstand. Both residents and nonresidents can rent power and cleanup for the bandstand.

Robbins-Halle Nature Preserve
Collierville is committed to conservation. The Robbins-Hale Nature Preserve showcases this dedication. The area constitutes nearly 100 acres of trees and waterways. The park also contains an aquifer recharge area. Future plans for this area include creating trails that connect to the Wolf River Wildlife Corridor and the Collierville Greenbelt system. More trails are scheduled for completion by the end of 2016.
Suggs Spray Park
Suggs is one of two water spray parks in Collierville. The water area is about the size of a basketball court, and two touchstone poles activate the numerous spray stations. During warm months, the park is open six days a week. An automatic timer shuts down the water overnight. This attraction is free for all residents and is very kid-friendly. After playing in the water, you and the kids can dry off in one of Suggs Spray Park’s open green spaces or have lunch in one of the picnic areas. This park is a fabulous, inexpensive option for a full day of fun with family.
