Eiffel Tower Park
A 70-foot replica of the famed Eiffel Tower.
The first city founded in west Tennessee was named after Paris, France in honor of the general Marquis de Lafayette. As several other locations have this namesake, a scale replica of the famous European tower was also introduced to Paris.
In 1993, students from Christian Brothers University built a 60-foot tall, wooden tower. It was so popular that a permanent metal structure was installed to replace it a few years later. The new tower was 70 feet tall and set off a little rivalry between Paris, Texas about whose tower was the largest.
Eiffel Tower Park provides tennis courts, a public Olympic-sized swimming pool, soccer fields, two walking trails, two children’s playgrounds with pavilions, a splash pad with its own Eiffel Tower, and a frisbee golf course.
