This is a great park to walk and relax. If you are into staying fit it is great for that too. Also, pack a lunch and just enjoy yourself for lunch too. It is safe as well .... Enjoy!

This is probably my favorite park in the Birmingham area. I really enjoy that they always have free events. It also hosts many different ways for a person to get in their daily exercise with either yoga sessions or a run or walk around the track. However, if you just want to enjoy the day with friends, family, or significant... More

Gorgeous Park that offers many free events. A great place to take the kids to run around, go exercise or just people watch. People are often out running, hula hooping, skateboarding, walking their dogs, flying kites and having picnics

This is a very nice urban park, built beside the railroad tracks, and about 4 blocks long and one and a half blocks wide. Nicely landscaped, with a small playground and lots of wide open space and walking trails. This was built in a formerly rundown warehouse area, and has become the centerpiece of a turnaround in the midtown, now... More

This park is a green oasis in the middle of downtown Birmingham. It's a beautiful, friendly place to walk - with the dog, your soulmate, or friends. Hot in the dead of summer but otherwise very pleasant!

This park has lots of activities and can be a great way to burn little energy with a child or pet. Skateboard/bike park, walking track, nice facility, etc.

The park has been made very well. Nice walking trails, small lake with fishes and well maintained laws. Good place for a small walk.
