This is one of three wedge-shaped parks in the Fan along Park Avenue. The shape of these parks is created by the convergence of east-west streets with Park Avenue. The Confederate monument in the center of the park is dedicated to the Richmond Howitzers artillery battery (1892, William Ludwell Sheppard). The monument, which faces east, consists of a Doric base supporting a Confederate artilleryman with his hat removed and a rammer at his feet.
