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

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

Glad to see green space in B'ham. We're here for the food truck fest and had an enjoyable afternoon. Very relaxing with lots of activity and music.

Having moved away from Birmingham before this park was created, I had to venture down to see what was done with this area.

This beautiful park across the street from Regions Park is a welcome green space downtown. An added bonus is the ability to watch and hear trains. Several daily activities ranging from Zumba to Yoga to boot camp meet every day at 6pm - check the schedule for the most up to date events.

Enjoyed my walk about the park. There were lots of people out and about, but I had zero problems concerning security.

Took the family for fireworks on 4th of July and Jazz in the Park. very safe, friendly place to enjoy a light concert and chill for the fireworks. Drinks, snacks, and other concessions sold on site. Neat amphitheater with lost of railroad traffic. Cool urban setting.

I really enjoyed walking the park. It is clean and very well maintained. Felt safe, as there was law enforcement sitting on a bench. There are often free events here...very nice park!
