Trotwood Park is a small residential subdivision located east of the Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport and north of I-59, that served as a track for harness racing in the late 19th century.
The 100-acre property then owned by the Birmingham Matinee Club, was sold in December 1904, but the buyer never produced the payment. The purchaser claimed that the property was mortgaged and could not be sold unencumbered as required by his contract.
