Shain Park, across from the Townsend Hotel, looks like a completely different block than just a year ago this fall. After undergoing extensive renovations, the park now includes a children’s play area, statues, a stage area and a new parking lot. The park is covered with trees and landscaping and looked amazing during the color changes just a few weeks ago.
Now, even though it’s getting colder, the park’s children’s area is finally open. The opening of this part of the park, for the most part, completes the project. Once the weather warms up, it will certainly be a destination for Birmingham residents looking to relax and still be close to downtown. This will especially be the case on Wednesday nights in the summer when the park features different free concerts.
