I really felt at peace in this park across from the front courtyard of our hotel. Composed mostly of dog walkers and joggers one can feel completely safe. I could not get enough of the historical markers and statues that adorn this most peaceful place. Walking to the back of the park, you will get wonderful views of the river,... More

Once you find the parking (metered on the south side of the park) it's a nice little spot has a nice view of the river and some cool history.

a nice park to see the remnant's of a Historical event that happened for us to learn from. History is what happened in the past, and Should NOT be Forgotten or Erased, but Learned from.

I visited the park during a walking tour. Seemed sort of depressing - war canons on display and a statue from a bygone era - perhaps better put in a museum. There were a lot of squirrels there! LOL

The park has several historical markers, Civil War cannons, and a large statue of Jefferson Davis. The park has been renamed by well intended but rather ignorant city leaders in the hopes that they can erase a piece of American history and do something more politically correct. Of course, it won't work, but the sad deconstruction continues. Glad I saw... More

This park overlooking Mud Island has two plaques, one dedicated as the Confederation Park and the other as Jefferson Davis Park. I was surprised to find this tranquil oasis just across the street from our hotel as we walked down toThe Beale Street Landing. A few benches, a few cannons and a great view of the Mississippi.

Confederate Park gives you a glimpse into a small, but major part, of the history of our country!! Truly a great place to see first-hand and walk where the sliders walked!

Be sure and take a stroll through Confederate Park. Or take a buggy ride and have your driver take you through the park. Only two Civil War battles were fought on the ground in Memphis and they were short ones. The Mississippi River tells quite a different story. It was very active during the Civil War. A lot of history... More

The name of this park is now Memphis Park. It has thankfully been renamed. It's a great little urban park. Good place to take in the view.
