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.
