With a population of 35,457, Olive Branch is the perfect size for anyone looking to start a new phase in life. This city has so much to offer that we just had to put our College Crossing Community in the middle of all the fun! Here are just some of the gems that Olive Branch has to offer.

Olive Branch City Park

This park provides “recreational and educational programs for all citizens”. Whether you’re looking for an area to host your special occasions or just want to get some fresh air and enjoy the scenery, this park is the place to be. There are also several programs year round for its citizens enjoyment. For more information, follow the link in the header.

Mid-South Ice House

For those who would rather stay inside and have fun, Olive Branch offers an ice arena for public ice skating, hockey, figure skating and more! Mid-South Ice House is the only NHL regulation ice skating arena open year-round in the Greater Memphis Metropolitan Area. If that’s not incentive enough, enjoy classes that vary from beginner to advanced and other programs such as private lessons, theater on ice and group skate!
