Jemison Park is located in Mountain Brook, a suburb of Birmingham. Alabama. It’s almost like a Central Park for Mountain Brook with tons of hiking trails in the middle of a neighborhood!

Mtnbrook.org has this to say about Jemison Park: This 54-acre linear park designed for preservation as a green way, is used for walking, jogging, reading, bird watching, and enjoying a picnic. Visitors are able to relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature while strolling along Shades Creek. Owls, hawks, raccoons, and fox are among the animals residing in the area, along with abundant native plant species. The natural beauty of the area makes Jemison Park one of the most popular walking attractions in Mountain Brook. The one mile concrete trail connects with the Nature Trail and the Watkins Trace Trail. Because it is tied in with the City’s sidewalk system, it is easily accessible to residents. There are also several parking spaces along Mountain Brook Parkway for parking.

Jemison Park is very dog friendly and has everything nature has to offer in the middle of the city where 2 worlds have collided!

One of the highlights of this micro adventure was an old grist mill. While privately owned it’s a beautiful sight in the middle of the Mountain Brook area. Here’ what the hikingproject.com had to say about the old mill: This is a historic mill built by Robert Jemison Jr. who was also known as the “Father of Birmingham”. The mill is nearly 90 years old and once functioned as a tea room where people came to enjoy tea and soak up the scenery along the banks of Shades Creek. The mill is a picturesque spot, and when the leaves are green and the creek is running high, it makes a great spot for photos.
