Great park to relax or jog
Railroad Park is an urban park in downtown Birmingham, Alabama and one of the prettiest parts of the city. It was built over rail lines and in fact a lot of the materials they found were used to built the actual park. To say that Railroad Park is an oasis of ponds and trees is to sell it short. It has a lake, a really beautiful water curtain, and several ponds and streams that run through the park.
I'd also like to add that there's a path that circles the park that is a little under a mile long. It's the perfect place to go jogging if you're looking for a little peace and fresh air. Also, there is free wi-fi throughout the entire premises so next time you need to catch up on some work you can ditch the Starbucks and head for a nice bench by the lake.
