Some 16 months ago as a newcomer, I was eager to explore Memphis (still am, BTW). My then-roommate and I had gone for an afternoon stroll starting at Tom Lee Park and consequently ended up in downtown at *this* park. I was clueless as to where we were. Here’s the excerpt from that post:
We walked block after block after leaving the (Autozone) ballpark. I lost track of which street we were on and which direction (north? east?) we were headed. I do know at one point we ended up in some public park. We weren’t welcomed because members of the State Bar were having a shindig and under the protection of uniformed guards.
I honestly thought it was only a few months ago, not over a year ago. Time sure flies. It’s time to finally let ya’ll in on the name of the park and nearby “unknown” building. :p
Court Square, a public park in existence since 1819, is a block east from my fave park, Confederate Park. Between Main Street (where the trolleys run) and 2nd Street, the park is surrounded by buildings, and has both a gazebo and fountain. During lunchtime in the summer, local musicians perform for the public while a hot dog vendor is also close at hand.

I’m a little indecisive about my next post. It will either be Chocolate Chip Bread or Orpheum…..or neither. :pTweet
