The T.O. Fuller State Park is a state park and recreation area in Memphis, Tennessee. It is the only state park and located within the city limits and is the second state park in the US to be opened for African Americans.

Named after the noted Dr. Thomas O. Fuller who worked hard in empowering and educating African Americans, the T.O. Fuller State Park was originally established as a recreation area for African Americans by the Civilian Conservation Corps or CCC during the Great Depression. During the excavation of the site for the creation of a swimming pool, workers found evidence of a prehistoric Indian village, leading to the creation of the CH Nash Museum at Chucalissa, which is now a National Historic Landmark.
