Parkside plays a lead role in the rebirth of downtown Birmingham. Central and accessible to the whole city, the district links important green spaces and neighborhoods from east to west and north to south. Railroad Park and Parkside are a major urban trail head for the Jones Valley Trail Corridor. It is the place for us to come together as one city.
Within easy walking distance of the historic Central Business District, the Loft District, UAB, Five Points South and more, Parkside also serves as an urban trailhead to begin your exploration of Birmingham on a human scale, at a human pace—whether that’s on foot, your bike, skateboard, rollerblades, or with the kids in strollers, Parkside is a great jumping off point to experience Birmingham.
