  • What a beautiful place just bursting with history. The Freedom Walk was incredibly powerful and moving. When my son is old enough to understand, we will visit Birmingham and this park together.
  • Beautiful place. I seen previous posts about the homeless....they are there but didn't bother us. I did see as the day went on they were talking to some people at the park. I wouldn't let this discourage you from visiting this beautiful historical important place!
  • Visited this park on a whim. Made a two hour drive because of an episode of Malcolm Gladwell's Revisionist History podcast. The episode, Foot Soldier, is dedicated to a sculpture in the park. The park provoked a lot of thought and reflection about race in America and the evolving Civil rights movement. I recommend going during the day. I witnessed a man with mental illness become really agitated and aggressive when I was there. The police were able to de-escalate the situation and calm him down quickly, which was impressive - I didn't expect thing to go so smoothly. Hat's off to the officers who responded. That was the only drawback of the visit. We found a hotel without a reservation and enjoyed the night and next day in the city. Listen to the podcast and visit the park with someone you enjoy talking with. It's worth it.
  • A lot of black history is commemorated and on display in this small park on the north end of downtown Birmingham. My Great, Great Uncle has a statue here. Julius Ellsberry, Pearl Harbor...(google it)
  • Nice place to visit, there will be homeless people in the park and some might ask for a handout.will be a good experience
