Kelly Ingram Park Reviews
Wow, what an incredible place! Not only is the park itself meaningful in terms of its role as a key venue in the Civil Rights movement in Birmingham, but it has a terrific phone-in audio recording... more »
One of four "must see" in that area of town - Civil Rights Institute, 16th Street Baptist Church and Ingram Park. Has several shadows highlighting significant events in the Birmingham Civil Rights... more »
This park was ground zero for Birmingham's civil rights movement. There is a fantastic free audio tour taking you from one amazing and powerful sculpture to the next. This tour was educational and awakening. I love this beautiful park. I'll definitely go back again. You can feel the history here. Very powerful place.
The story of Kelly Ingram is one of valor and camaraderie, but it does not relate to the civil rights movement at all. It is time to rename this park!There are many sculptures sprinkled through the park, and these tell the story of the fight for equality. This park needs a tour on its own to be familiar with the works of art that abound. This park is also the beginning of a walking tour called "the freedom trail". I highly suggest this walking tour, one of many offered by the plaques that stand in the downtown area of Birmingham.
