Great Park in central Birmingham. Nice to see some green space, very well kept. Still some building work going on by the looks of it too! Loads of people there, joggers, dog walkers. Great for everyone.

Such a GREAT use of space in the middle of the city! This park has open areas for playing, walking paths, a man-made creek and manicured landscaping. There were even ducks on the pond! What a lovely place to walk the dog while on vacation!

This is a very cool park and a great place to check out in Birmingham. We went in the winter for the ice skating, which is small but fun.

Have been here many times to see fireworks, exercise, family walks and for special events including the ice rink in December. A really great idea and well executed.

Railroad Park has changed the area for the better. We love walking there and attending the free symphony concerts in the summer. It's near everything and also close to Regions Park.

To spend more time together, my friends and I decided to venture over to Railroad Park for a afternoon walk. Within a simple lap, you can take in different viewpoints of the city, From businesses in sky scrapers to living residents and activities.
