Vulcan Park and Museum
#5 of 12 Nature & Parks in Birmingham
Equipped with a Museum and (Coming soon: Spring/Summer 2018) a small amphitheater, enhanced gardens, with master plans to "loop" the city with a 5-6 mile long walking trail will only enhance the park.
The gigantic Vulcan statue is definitely impressive, but, beyond that, it's relaxing to walk around the park, with its superb views of the city of Birmingham.
Birmingham Zoo

The splash pad park, train, carousel, and the farm petting zoo were great fun for both me and my 8 year old daughter.

East Lake Park
#12 of 12 Nature & Parks in Birmingham
Sitting on the beautiful benches and watching the geese fly in and land in the water or even when they are just walking around the park, it is just wonderful to see.
I think that this park is very beautiful and nice for the kids and for the family.
