Park Review: Overton Park

Yes folks! Fall is right around the corner!! Cooler temperatures, crisp leaves, and relief from the summer! It’s time to start thinking about outdoor play and parks!

This park is one of Birmingham’s best kept secrets! Overton Park is situated on Overton Drive in Mountain Brook. It is the perfect park for a toddler. There is a large FENCED green area for general running and play, with a walking path paved around the whole thing. The playground is geared towards toddlers, but there are things for the younger and older too. None of the equipment is too high or dangerous. One drawback is that the covered eating area only consists of a few tables, but just make sure to bring a blanket and picnic instead! The fenced area makes it easy to keep kids contained, and because the park is small, it is easy to keep an eye on the kiddos. There are swings for big kids and for the babes too. There are also tennis courts if you want that as an option!
Check it out, there’s a Bruster’s just down the street where you can get a scoop of birthday cake ice cream on your way!
