This a beautiful park directly across from the Civil Rights Museum. Beautiful sculptures of various situations that happened during the Civil Rights movement in Birmingham. Some local homeless people who were harmless and wanted to talk to you about the history of Birmingham.

We were walking Birmingham's march routes (great informative placards through the general area) and ventured into the park, which is situated next to the 16th Street Baptist church and the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute. Be sure to check out the audio tour. Although a lot...More
