The little one enjoyed. She could run around and climb. It is definitely nothing special though. Nice corner for a sunday afternoon.

Good place to get out and take a stroll; see a part of Tuscaloosa history. Very close to downtown and Bryant Denny Stadium

Not a lot to see, but the ruins are really pretty! Very photogenic, but not thrilling to visit. Tuscaloosa used to be the capitol of the state and these are the ruins of the building.

This is a great place to enjoy the outdoors, learn a little Alabama history, take photos for events or just hand out for the Pokémon Go stops! My boys love running around while waiting for the Pokémon stops to reload.

A bit of history here. Former State Capitol location. Land is well groomed in beautiful green grass. Perfect for wedding pictures, wedding ceremonies, starting point for charity walk/runs.

It's an open park. No gates or anything. I assume that it is open as long as the sun is up. I don't think it would be much of an attraction in the dark anyway.
