Linn is a great park downtown Birmiingham, it as good and bad memories. The Statues are a remiinder of our city and the pain it went through during the Civil Rights Movement.

The Christmas tree is in a different spot this year. It looks lovely across from City Hall. The lights in the trees in the park look great.

In the past, we used this park to be the beginning and end of a yearly heart walk and the festivities associated with variable charity events. Now, it is an object of political / racial discord; not even a family -friendly park.

The venue is very nice for an outdoor concert, just too many restrictions. They have enacted a clear bag policy and decided after they had sold tickets.
