This is a nice place for all to enjoy. Families, couples, you name it. It is a pretty area in downtown Birmingham and well maintained. It was a good place for my Grandson's 1st birthday party. They provided a tent which was needed since there is not much shade. The area is open for Frisbee throwing, etc. A great asset... More

This is easily one of the best offerings that downtown Birmingham has to offer. It's easy to see how it was award numerous recognition for it's design and impact on the overall downtown atmosphere. Highly recommend at least an hour to explore the whole park and see some great views of the skyline.

Very beautiful place. Its right in the heart of downtown and directly across the street from Regions Park. (Home of the Bham Barons). Its a nice place to take a walk for leisure or exercise. Plus, it has a great view of the skyline.

Very beautiful park next to the baseball field. A great place for a family stroll, and lots of things for kids to do. A prefect spot for a picture; family or otherwise. Parking can be hard to come by, and I have noticed that they have recently added more security. Last time we were there someone was getting married in... More

This place is beautiful and has lots of events. Check them out online!! They have movies in the park, exercise, and music. This park is very interactive. They have a food stand with your average over priced bland food (sort of expected). Sometimes there are food and ice cream trucks. The food trucks are the real deal!! I have been... More

Having moved away from Birmingham before this park was created, I had to venture down to see what was done with this area. I was truly impressed with not only the park itself but with the work being done to revitalize the area of town. I visited the park during the work week, so many of the parking places were... More
