  • This was the center of the racial conflict in 1963 Birmingham. The park is interesting and worth the visit, but the characters who hang out there will have you ready to leave in a hurry. 
  • Beautiful. I've never seen a neon green butterfly until i visited here. Very important part of American History was captured here in statue and plaques. A lot of homeless people hanging in the park, but weren't a bother. They were very kind with greetings. We did happen to get one gentleman a mean at a Resturaunt called Ms B's a block away. We didn't eat there, so i cant give it a review.
  • Lovely park. I was immediately approached by a fella who I believe was homeless. He took me around and really gave me a good tour and told me things that I would not have known otherwise. He did expect to be paid for his services. That would have been fine....but I was approached by 4 other gentlemen for money while I was trying to get back to my car. Maybe the city could pay some of those guys to give tours. And discourage others from panhandling in the park.
  • Beautiful park with excellent sculptures and displays on the Civil Rights Movement. However - the homeless panhandlers will ruin your expirence
  • Beautiful statues and a powerful message. Well worth walking through.
  • Historic park with a lot of vagrants. I don't feel safe there.
