Within the neighborhood is Foote Homes Park. In the vicinity is the 10-acre Robert R. Church Park. Named after a local philanthropist, entrepreneur, and millionaire, Robert R. Church built the park and an auditorium. Both became the cultural center for many African-Americans, who at the time were not allowed to use the current recreation centers. Eventually, the auditorium was torn down and in 1993 it was added to the Beale Street Historic District and the National Register of Historic Places. For history lovers, the Historic District is just a short commute from the New Pathways neighborhood, as is the Memphis Rock and Soul Museum.
