This article is about the subdivision. For the 1956 novel by Ethel Miller Gorman, see Red Acres (novel).

Red Acres is a residential subdivision located on the slope of Red Mountain south of Glen Iris Park and east of George Ward Park in the Glen Iris neighborhood in Birmingham's Southside.

Though it was only 5% developed, with about 20 mostly brick veneer houses at the time, appraisers for the Home Owners Loan Corporation gave Red Acres an above-average grade for mortgage security in their 1938 redlining map.
