Typical small park, except for the view of the river from the bluff. There is a statue of Jefferson Davis, a couple of Civil War cannons and a couple of historical markers. There is an illustrated marker discussing the naval battle of Memphis and another on the history of the area.

This easily missed area is essentially a small grass patch with a few cannons facing the river hardly a park and hardly worth stopping for or noting...... additionally let's remember nobody really cares about Confederates in 2017 they were at the losing party! Fundamentally in America it's embarrassing to even have a park named Confederate Park!

This little park is located along North Front Street. It is a memorial to the Civil War. It was dedicated in 1908. The park provides a good perspective of an important battle that took place in Memphis. The focal point of the park is the statue of Jefferson Davis who lived in Memphis from 1875 to 1878. Actual Civil War... More

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.
