  • It has a great concept: to commemorate all hardships balck people had to endure to get equal rights. The monument to child victims of hate crimes is heartbreaking. Unfortunately, it's full of homeless people who will harass you if you are by yourself. Some are quite aggressive and hostile. The monuments are really worth seeing, but come in a daytime and as a group. Otherwise it's scary and unsafe.
  • The park is beautiful in both nature and architecture but not inviting. Not only is it in the center of Birmingham's roughest neighborhood but is also crawling with beggars with no security to offset them. One went as far as to ask if I needed to know where to find "any kind of drugs or thugs I could need" directly on park property
  • Definitely a must for any visitor and resident. Really is demonstrative of Birmingham's role in the Civil Rights Movement. Helps those of us that didn't witness the history better understand its significance.
  • Quiet place to reflect your thoughts or just hang out.. go only during the day tho
  • Stark reminder that African Americans died and suffered immensely for this Nation. People forget.
