A decent park, very well kept and clean. Great place to walk, jog and bike ride, there's also a play area and exercise area. Events are sometimes held here on occasions as well.

Excellent venue for large-scale outdoor activities, with great views of the City. Night concert on the 4th of July was so fun, especially with evening trains moving through the downtown and a gorgeous sunset as the backdrop.

Nice little park. Terrible area of town. If you visit get out early evening. Lots of druggies in the neighborhood. Be prepared to be accosted by panhandlers and junkies.

We all took our bikes to the park, from the 5 year old twins to my 70 year old husband. We rode and played in the water and talked with other families. There is a play area and you can either bike on flat paths or try a few manmade hilly areas. Fun was had by all, we stayed for... More

Really nice park in the middle of a busy city. Nice for a picnic or pictures! They regularly have different types of entertainment such as the Symphony.

If you are in downtown Birmingham and have 30 minutes to spare, it's worth walking around this park. This green space acts as a little oasis in this industrial area. I wouldn't recommend walking there alone at night, as the surrounding area isn't the nicest.

This is a great stop for parents with young kids. Lots of great trails to run, a playground, covered seating for a picnic, and more. My son loved the trains!

We found a spot in the shade and enjoyed the free concert at Railroad park. The park was clean and felt very safe wandering around it. This place will be a huge return on Birmingham's investment on it. The fireworks after the concert ended were wonderful and traffic not too bad to get back to hotel since near all the... More

This is a nice park set across from the ballpark. The railroad tracks by it adds a nostalgic look. Nice place for a walk or jog, saw a lot of families out enjoying the day.
