I recommend visiting the Civil Rights Institute first which describes in detail with video of the Children's March that occurred here. The sculptures make a powerful statement of the horrors those brave children suffered. As far as the grounds, the entrance across from the Civil Rights Institute is beautiful but the rest could use a little attention. And, yes, there are what appeared to be "street people" hanging out at the park but none approached us. Unfortunately, what shortened our visit was a person who possibly had mental issues who was screaming at another person sitting on a bench. We could hear this person across the park the entire time we were there. A shame because I would have liked to see the entire park. Regardless, still well worth a visit.
