Loved this spot. I'd heard about it and wanted to check it out for myself while in town. I can see it serving the revitalized downtown population for years. Very similar vibe to the high line in NYC.

A beautiful park with a great view and plenty of activities! I love to go there, especially during the summer time. You can catch a concert, a movie, just about anything.

It's a really well done park! It is a little small but, very nice place to take a walk or take a yoga class.

A beautiful example of what a city can do when they put their minds to it. Changes in topography abound and make every scene different. You will not be disappointed!!

We love going to this park when the weather is good. Lots of room to spread out, ride bikes, play ball, have picnics, walk, lay out, just whatever you in the mood for. The food they sale out there is overpriced, but sometimes the food trucks setup around the park and the food is good.

This is a nice park developed for the city capable of holding small concerts and events. It features a small trail and some landscaped nature. It's a great place to spend a sunny afternoon.

Loved seeing this side of Birmingham! Such a pretty park, and tons of people exercising and picnicking with families. We loved watching the HUGE koi swim in the pond. Pretty landscape!

There is free wi-fi (!), on the day I was there, there were many carts selling ice cream an other goodies. Families... More

Railroad Park features a very large green space, surrounded by walking trail. There are play areas for kids and a gym-like area. What makes the park so popular is the surroundings as well. Birmingham Light Rails at each end next to the train tracks (North) and the Barons stadium to the South end. This gives you a great view of... More

This is a great park for visitors to get some exercise in when visiting Birmingham. The large loop around the park is approximately 3/4 of a mile, so it is practical and convenient. There are a couple of other path options as well. A very nice place with plenty of family activity!
