Dorothy Spears Park (formerly East Thomas Park and Duke Park) is a 23.72-acre public park in Birmingham's East Thomas neighborhood. It occupies the area east of Arkadelphia Road, south of Village Creek, west of 4th Street West, and north of the former Enon Ridge Railway (route of the old No. 6 Pratt-Ensley streetcar line) and 12th Avenue West. Its official address is 700 13th Avenue West, but the main entrance to the park is located on 3rd Street West.

The park houses a public swimming pool, two paved basketball courts, a baseball diamond, a soccer field and a playground. The former railroad bed was repurposed in 2013 as a walking/cycling trail, originally the Dorothy Spears Greenway at Village Creek, now the Enon Ridge Trail.
