It was really cool to walk or ride scooters around Martyrs Park and go across the river. The views are pretty cool too.

We do not reside in Memphis nor do we visit frequently, but we felt fortunate to have found Martyr’s Park on a morning walk. But I have to inquire, how many nearby residents of the city are actually aware of the park and the purpose it salutes?

Vehicles access the 9-acre grassy Park via Channel 3 Drive, which dead ends @ a small but Free Parking Circle adjacent to the Founders Pointe Neighborhood.

The number of Visitors discovering Martyrs Park has exploded since the opening of Big River Crossing to the South 1 year ago. BRC drew 250,000 Pedestrians & Bicyclists in its 1st year. I recommend arriving @ least 1 hour before Sunset. The Walk in both directions is scenic & pleasant.…

Nice park to go for a walk and take a few pictures. Easy access and parking, limited facilities. Got to see a few barges pass bye.
