Small park, next to Mud Island park with a view of the Mississippi. Across from the Court Square with the Courtyard, Springhill and Renaissance Inns across the street. Not much to see but still nice. Not something to go out of your way for

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
