Barker Park is a 1.39-acre public park located at 2215 13th Avenue North in Birmingham's Druid Hills neighborhood.

The park is on the site of the former Barker School, which was named for William Barker, the civil engineer who laid out Birmingham's city center street grid and resided in the area for three decades before his death in 1899. The school burned down in 1941. After the fire the site was cleared and dedicated as Barker Park.

In 2018, through the efforts of Lake Hubbard, Nick Zucco, and Robert Hill, who founded the Steel City Soccer Foundation, an outdoor futsal court was constructed at Barker Park.
