This is a pretty park on the waterway. It's easy to walk around and shows a different side of Memphis.

A small park looking over the river. The cannons are copies, and this park commemorates the civil war battle of memphis which lasted about half an hour, and was a naval battle fought on the river.

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.
