Birmingham: Crestwood Park
Among Birmingham’s many attributes are its city parks and one of the most popular is Crestwood, referred to by a local as “a nice little park in a nice little neighborhood.” The 12.11-acre park includes a football field and pool, and in 2012 was treated to major renovation. A children’s tennis court was added, along with a new playground and walkways. The 2.56 million renovation led by architects Design Initiative, also included refurbishing existing buildings, new landscaping, seating and a new press box and irrigation system. The city purchased the property for Crestwood Park in 1946 for $6,100.
