Mud Island River Park
The River Walk is one of the most unique representations of
the Mississippi River in the world. It is a 5-block long replica of
the lower Mississippi river, from Cairo, IL, to New Orleans, LA.
Each 30" stride is equivalent to one mile on the actual river.
Along your journey, you'll revisit historical events and learn
about geographical transformations.
The "1,000" mile journey concludes at the Gulf of Mexico,
a one acre enclosure that holds 1.3 million gallons of water.
There, visitors can enjoy a leisurely pedal boat ride around the
Gulf area with the Memphis skyline in the background. Restaurants
Mud Island River Park has two concessions areas to purchase food.
The River Center Deli in the main building, and Gulf Port Grill located
at the southern end of the River Walk. You"ll find a variety of sandwiches,
ice cream, snacks and beverages to satisfy those appetite cravings
