Drove by here on May 18, 2018. This park is nice and surreal and very well kept. It is easy to get in and out of.

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
