This park is a wonderful reminder of the strife and turmoil our country endeavored to ensure all men and women reserved equal rights and treatment under the law. I highly recommend visiting!

Just a small park on the edge of downtown with some old military artillery. Great view of the river!! Lots of shade, a good place to relax.

seems political correctness has hit Memphis and all Confederate parks have been renamed!! This is historical but some people do not seem to look at it this way

This is a pretty park on the waterway. It's easy to walk around and shows a different side of Memphis.

A small park looking over the river. The cannons are copies, and this park commemorates the civil war battle of memphis which lasted about half an hour, and was a naval battle fought on the river.
