Eddie Kendrick Memorial Park
The park, on the site of the former Brock's Drugs building, was dedicated on October 16, 1999. The park uses Kendricks' family name sans the "s", which was added early in his career. It features a bronze sculpture of Kendricks by local artist Ron McDowell, as well as sculptures of the other Temptations, set into a granite wall. The singers' cuffs each have a letter on them, together spelling "BHAM" from left to right.
Inscribed on the granite are the names of Temptation's hit songs. Recorded music can be heard throughout the park, featuring songs by Kendricks and the Temptations.
The dedication ceremony included live music at the park by the Birmingham Heritage Band. A block away at the Carver Theatre, stages were set up inside and outside and performers included Ona Watson, Logan, Red Light District, Tekneek, Cleve Eaton, Supreme and Big Maul, DBC, Bernard Williams & Mt. Mariah Baptist Church Choir, Trinity, Allison Kile, Prince Yelder and New Hope Baptist Church Choir. That evening, the Temptations Revue performed at Fair Park Arena.
