This is a very beautiful and peaceful park. The sculptures and statues that honor both known and unknown heroes and victims of the civil rights movement are just spectacular. Very moving. You can begin the civil rights trail here, and see both the 16th Street...More

The park was small, thought there might be more. We might have gotten more out of it if we downloaded the audio on our phone. We went on a Sunday and was disappointed that no one was there. There were maybe 7 of us in...More

We visited Kelly Ingram Park, along with the 16th St Baptist Church and Civil Rights Institute with about 20 seventh and eighth graders. Grounds are a beautiful green space that does an outstanding job of educating on the importance of Birmingham in the civil rights...More

The statues looked amazing. Historic area was of interest but too many sketchy characters lurking around so we viewed from the car and split. There were families there taking photos and enjoying the outskirts but not our family.

We did not listen to the audio tour, but having just experience the Civil Rights Museum, we really appreciated the historical significance of the area and the beautiful sculptures in the park.

With or without a visit to the Civil Rights Museum, this park is a must-see. The sculptures are varied and vivid. The benefit to visitors is to stand among life-size, 3-D re-creations of what people of this era experienced. Some sculptures are horrifying; others made...More

Kelly Ingram Park is now part of the National Monument in Birmingham. Birmingham's rich civil rights history comes to life in this park. The park is across the street from the AG Gaston Motel, The 16th Street Baptist Church and the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute.

Excellent adjunct to the Civil Rights museum next door. Excellent depictions of the Civil rights trauma that you can see as you stroll the park. Not large--you can see it all in 15 to 20 minutes, but you can also take more time and enjoy...More

We went to the park for the Women's March. Although I live in the Birmingham metro area, I'd never been to the park before. I should have. It's small, but packed with history. The area is steeped in the struggle for civil rights, the 16th...More
