This expansive park is a great addition to Birmingham. A great place to picnic, play, jog, or fly a kite. Lots of pond and flora areas. Playground area is small so if taking kids, bring some bikes, balls, etc. We felt safe and would recommend...More

This has become a local staple and a tourist attraction alike. While it is a fairly new park, there are many amenities and things to do for everyone. Walking trails, climbing areas, play areas for kids.

Soon this will be a trial head for a 3 mile walking trail connecting it to the Sloss Furnace. Birmingham is becoming a wonderful place to visit.

The sponsors paid your admission to the concert. A great night in a pleasant surrounding on a nice night. If you haven't been to Railroad Park, what are you waiting for?
