Memphis Park

Sitting high on the fourth Chickasaw bluff, this three-acre park in Downtown Memphis offers an expansive view of the Riverfront under beautiful shade trees. The park is bounded by Jefferson Avenue to the north and North Front Street to the east, with the University of Memphis School of Law and Cossitt Library across Court Avenue to the south. Its sister green space, Mississippi River Park, is located to the west, just over Riverside Drive. This cool green spot allows visitors a respite from the concrete and asphalt of the city, instead enjoying the soothing roll of Old Man River.
