“A gem in Birmingham”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2014

I'm not a fan of Birmingham. There aren't many parks or great open spaces compared to other cities.
Railroad Park is a diamond in this city. It is great for exercise, relaxation, and spending time with friends or family. You can easily take a lawn chair or a blanket, a frisbee, and a picnic, and have a wonderful day or afternoon.
There are clean and modern bathrooms. Some concession services. There are free exercise classes at different times.
I go alone all of the time and have never experienced a problem. I usually park a little further away to keep any open spaces available for families.

Notes:
DON'T go when the Barons are playing unless you want to park FAR away. Parking needs to be SERIOUSLY improved in the area.
There aren't many restaurants or shops in the near vicinity.
Free wifi at the park.
Pet friendly, bring bags. I've not seen a lot of 'bag stations'
Alcohol allowed in certain areas when the concessions are selling.
DO go to Good People brewing after. I usually go to the park on Sunday then wander over to GP for a drink and enjoy their Sunday music series.

“Really GREAT park!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2014 via mobile

This park is clean & wide open! A really fantastic place for the kids to run around. It's even better if your family enjoys seeing trains. You could easily spend a couple hours sitting on the lawn, playing on the playground, watching the koi & carp in the pond or just taking a stroll. I wish we found this park a day earlier. A must-visit in Birmingham!

“Great park, do not listen to naysayers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2014 via mobile

Despite what a few overly-critical individuals say, Railroad park is a great place to spend an afternoon with the family. The city has really done a terrific job in revamping the park and it feels very safe and inviting! Right next to the ball field, it is a great development in the heart of downtown!

“Quaint park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2014 via mobile

The park is really quite nice. I didn't expect much for the location but it is a nice little park for jogging or walking. I came here for a day vacation and thought the park was a nice thing to just walk around and see a little bit of the city. It is well taken care of.
