Family visit to Memphis

Nice little park with views of the river. There are some civil war era cannon on display here as well as some historical markers.

This is a sweet little park located right on the Mississippi River. We took an evening stroll through the park and really enjoyed it. There are Confederate cannons on display and a couple historical markers.

It is a cute little park with fantastic views of the Mississippi River, and the canons and statues are interesting, but I find it hard to commemorate the Confederate leaders and soldiers in such a 'proud' way. If I didn't know what actually happened in history, I would believe the south won the war based on these plaques.

Canons and statues and a lot of plaques depicting the history of a great invasion by union troops and a River naval battle during the Civil War. Memphis "lost" to the union, and re-taken later.

The navigator for this location was not accurate. Quiet park setting. You have to pay to park anywhere near the location. Cool statues & cannons.

Took a stroll before we left town. This park was right across from our hotel. Nice quiet area to sit and chat. Several historical plaques to read. Nice view of Mud Island.

An interesting piece of history. We enjoyed the walk around the park. Many people having their lunch in the park during the week, people watching was fun.

This park is a nice place to relax, enjoy the view and just slow down from all the activities in Memphis. Also, there are historical markers for history buffs

Beautiful day, and a real pretty park. Had a great view of the Mighty Mississippi River. It was starting to get late and a beautiful sun set over the Mississippi River. It has some old Civil War Cannons a very nice place to sit on the benches and just unwind.
