Situated with views across the Mississippi this park is clean small but relaxing. Few monuments and information plaques to read. Worth a stop if passing.

Well policed small park with some civil war memorials still intact, our dog went crazy with all the squirrels there must have been 20 in this small green area, the cop laughed at her and said all the dogs go nuts for the squirrels.

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

Come see and feel the history. Walk around the park and see the beautiful view of the Mississippi river.

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.
