The park is right across the street from 16th Street Baptist Church and the civil rights institute. The large fountain was not working and filled with debris but the statues were amazing. I listened to the free guided tour on my phone.

It's the park beside the Civil Rights Institute. Has a lot of info, sculptures and plaques to view. We took about 15 minutes to walk and take photos. We hurried because it was cold, but well worth visiting.

The audio tour of this park is quite worthwhile. Throughout the park there is signage and each piece of sculpture has a number. The dial-in number is on the sign. The park is right across the street from the Civil Rights Insititute.
