First time for me at this park. It was a very beautiful place... I really enjoyed getting to break away from the hectic place of business and just enjoying nature. You should check it out if you are close by.

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.

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.

Situated almost in the center of downtown and several nearby venues, this park is like a heartbeat to Birmingham. Whether early in the waking hours to late after the sunset you'll catch people walking/jogging, biking, skating/boarding, taking their pets for a stroll, exercising, or just...More

Hi, Aaron. It is open and dimly lit, but I would be very uneasy around there at night. There is a ballpark and great brewery right around there, so the area will be full of people, but very few will be hanging out in... More
