This is convenient to downtown hotels, hospitals and UAB. It was very crowded, so it wasn’t as serene as I had hoped but a great place to escape the hospital and get some fresh air. But I will say, don’t let your guard down.

This is something new, recently renovated. The cool part is that you are in the park and have a view of the downtown (sorrounded by tall buildings).

Very well-kept park! Beautiful addition to the bustling city. Grassy space for picnic, restrooms, playground, fun statues, history timeline of Birmingham, several walking paths, workout equipment, a few ponds, beautiful landscaping, convenient parking, coffee shop and brewery near by, and pretty views of the city!

Want to unwind, walk, jog, sit, read,,,,,, then try Railroad Park. Located on Bham Southside near new Barons ball field, its a great place to grap some fast food and chill. Take in the city view near the famous UAB Medical Campus.

Hi, Aaron. It is open and dimly lit, but I would be very uneasy around there at night. There is a ballpark and great brewery right around there, so the area will be full of people, but very few will be hanging out in... More
