The pics inspired me to visit inspite of homeless population. Maybe that day I will provide meals into my plans. The rollback of opportunities (businesses moved overseas immigrants hire their own) and the drug push in all our neighborhoods (Crack first, now the Opiate fallout)...More

The most Tasteful and respectful monument to the civil rights movement. Tasefully done, without compromising the tremendous sacrifices and struggles that took place in the Park, which was central to the movement.

A lovely park with interesting monuments. Phone numbers are provided at each statue to give a recorded message providing a background to each. If attending the civil rights institute, make time for this park! We attended in cold and rainy weather. I wouldn’t recommend that...More

An amazing park, worth the visit. There are sculptures spread through the park with associated plaques telling the story of 1963 Birmingham. Many of the sculptures are extremely moving, evoking fear, sadness, and anger, but also hope for a better world. I went around sunrise...More

We had some time before we could enter the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, so we walked through this park which is filled with statues, sculpture, and explanatory material pertaining to the Civil Rights history of Alabama. The park is well landscaped and small enough that...More

This park is across from Birmingham Civil Rights Center and is a great place to wander, look at the memorials, sit and reflect. The atrocities committed by whites on the black civil rights protestors is brought full on and the Park memorializes those brave protestors....More

Mention Birmingham and 1963, and anyone familiar with American history will recall the iconic Civil Rights struggle that took place. They should know the name of Bull Conner and how he faced hundreds of African American children with hoses and vicious attack dogs while filling...More

The park is right across the street from 16th Street Baptist Church and the civil rights institute. The large fountain was not working and filled with debris but the statues were amazing. I listened to the free guided tour on my phone.
