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.

Sad they felt the need to rename this park that was to be a tribute to history. The park is nice, with a lovely view of the bridges and the river. Would be a nice place to run as well.

Very beautiful park with lots of walking/running areas which makes it easy for sightseeing or locals running. Overlooking the Mississippi River and the river boats, lighted in the evenings and it is a short trolley ride away from downtown.

Confederate Park is full of the rich history of the War Between The States. The monument placed by the Southern people to honor Jefferson Davis is quite beautiful, as is every other item in the park, whether the cannons or the bust. The layout is beautiful and the view on the bluff is stunning! It is said that the citizens... More

This was a pleasant short visit and walk through the park touring statues and memorial plaques commemorating lives lost and civil war history. Time spent there was informative and full of History and the view atop the bluff of the river area and Mud Island was pleasant. I was pleased to see the ten commandments, also a part of history...

This review is about FOREST Park, since I couldn't find it listed. (I refuse to call it that sissy Health Sciences Park). The park itself is neat to go see and take a few quick pictures of the grave/monument of Nathan Bedford Forest. Parking itself can be annoying since it's limited, but if you can manage it, it's fine.

This is a good place for reflection. Just standing on this point and imagining what the confederate soldiers and the citizens were thinking as they looked out onto the Mississippi as they waited for the next move of the Union troops. Very nice park and not far from the Chamber of Commerce and the Mud Island Tram.
