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.

To spend more time together, my friends and I decided to venture over to Railroad Park for a afternoon walk. Within a simple lap, you can take in different viewpoints of the city, From businesses in sky scrapers to living residents and activities.
