Award-winning urban oasis.
Railroad Park is a Public/Private Partnership. That means it relies on funds from many sources. Keeping the park open, lush and full of activity requires municipal dollars, corporate donations and individual contributions. It takes everyone working together.
Since opening in 2010, Railroad Park has transformed the mindset and physical landscape of Birmingham. Railroad Park has been a catalyst for economic development, downtown living and fun. More than 600,000 residents and guests of the Magic City will participate in Park programs and activities this year. Railroad Park continues to generate positive local and national publicity for our region.
And Railroad Park doesn't work without you.
Have you been prouder of Birmingham since Railroad Park opened, or had more fun in the city since we've been here? If you've taken a jog, eaten a lunch, had a play date, a yoga class, a meeting, an afternoon nap or taken a shortcut to a Baron's game at Regions Field, please consider making a donation. Any amount makes a difference. Any amount makes Railroad Park programs and operations possible.
