Beulah Lewis Park is a 3.25-acre public park located next to the Marks Village housing project in Gate City. It occupies the block between 66th and 67th Street South west of Interlaken Avenue and east of the former Birmingham Mineral Railroad line. Named for Beulah Lewis, the park features a baseball diamond, a swimming pool, two outdoor basketball courts, two playgrounds, and a picnic pavilion.

The park underwent a $150,000 renovation in 2010, with $25,000 from the Gate City Neighborhood Association's discretionary account. The first phase of improvements consisted of resurfacing the infield and replacing the dugouts, announcer's booth, concession stand and outfield fence at the baseball field. The park's restrooms were renovated in the second phase of the project.
