Thanks to the vision of E. C. Hinds – a local entrepreneur who wanted the people of Memphis to have a beautiful place in which to feel inspired and spiritually uplifted – Memorial Park is much more than a focal point in times of bereavement. Hinds’ vision – “of lakes and fountains, broad driveways, spacious lawns, beautiful trees and flowers” – has been realized at this remarkable property.
Among the park’s features are a gracefully curved reflecting pool and three-tiered fountain at the entrance, stone bridges, and fascinating structures by Mexican artist Dionicio Rodriguez. They include the Crystal Shrine Grotto – described as the only man-made crystal cave in the world – the Annie Laurie Wishing Chair and Rose Garden, the Wishing Well, and the Fountain of Youth.
