“Great Location!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Beautiful park in a great central location with a great view. Walk over to good people brewery or catch a baseball game at Regions field. The park has several fun and exciting festivals throughout the year. Definitely try to catch Break'n Bread!

“Fantastic Urban Park”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Railroad park is simply gorgeous. Fantastic views of the downtown skyline. Playgrounds for kids. It's worth a drive to walk around the park, grab a hotdog from the food stand, or better, bring your own picnic. Good People Brewery and Regions ball park are across the street. Take a walk around the park, grab a couple of local brews, and catch the game. Great afternoon!! More businesses will pop up in the coming months...This is an up and coming area for Birmingham, great things are happening in this area.

“Terrific”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

I live by the BJCC (just about 5mins from railroad park) and I can honestly say the railroad park is beautiful and I'm very happy they decided to make it. It is a big hang out spot for a diverse age/race/personality type. People from all over the city hang out here. As for those that made comments about crime? They don't really know what they're talking about. The people that live in the suburban areas tend to be a little outdated with what happens downtown. The actual downtown area does not have very much crime. Its a simple matter of street smarts. Its like what someone tells you in college. If you choose to go at night time you should have a group just to be safe. However morning time is perfectly fine. I saw a man roller skating downtown at 10pm. Haha its pretty dead down here at night... The crime has definitely went somewhere else in the past 10yrs. There is crime by club heat at night time though so I wouldn't go walking in that area at night.

“Beauty in the Beast”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

This is a beautiful place in the beast of downtown Birmingham. It is a wonderful place to get away from work for a lunch break and nice walk, or a nice place to come on an afternoon off with the kids.

Haven't been to the park in awhile but did enjoy the view. It was clean and not crime noted the day I went.
