Stonewall Jackson statue

Jackson Park consists of 0.4 acres and includes all of the property bordered by Jefferson Street, Fourth Street N.E., High Street and the Albemarle County Court Building. A large equestrian monument of Thomas Jonathan "Stonewall" Jackson, by Charles Keck, is the focal point of the park. The park also contains well-maintained flower beds and a number of benches.

Land for the park was given to the city by Paul Goodloe McIntire[1].

The city's comprehensive plan classifies Jackson Park as an 'urban' park[2].
