The park is dynamic and has educational displays that capture the civil rights movement. The locals are friendly and they explain the meaning of the displays and history of them.

We weren’t planning on going into the park but we arrived at the civil rights institute before opening time and this park is right opposite. We wandered around, looked in awe at the statues and read with great interest the information on display. It’s all...More
