North Birmingham Park is a Birmingham city park located on 28th Street North between 35th and 38th Avenue North, backing up to Norfolk Southern's North Alabama West End District trackage.

The park features a baseball diamond, a paved outdoor basketball court, and the North Birmingham Park Recreation Center.

During the Great Depression in the 1930s, the Civil Works Administration carried out improvements to the park, including 6 new shuffleboard courts, a graded picnic area, 11 barbecue pits and 100 picnic tables. CWA crews also trimmed trees throughout the park.
