Wildwood Centre South is the main section of the Wildwood Shopping Center located at 217-265 Lakeshore Parkway, to the west of the Wal-Mart Supercenter and across the parkway from Homewood Commons (originally Wildwood North). It was constructed in 1991.

The center, originally 225,921 square feet straddling the city limits of Homewood and Birmingham, is accessed from Wildwood Parkway and Wildwood Circle, and backs up to Shades Creek and the Wildwood Preserve.

In 2005, the western section of the shopping center within Birmingham's corporate limits (259–265 Lakeshore Parkway) was demolished, leaving 194,560 square feet on the eastern, Homewood side. The largest building, at 217–251 Lakeshore Parkway is 114,025 square feet.

The shopping center was acquired by an affiliate of the TPA Group of Atlanta, Georgia for $12.05 million in early 2016. They sold it to a group affiliated with CRS Realty of Houston, Texas for $17.8 million in October 2019. The 259 Building, formerly housing Office Max, was bought separately by a New York City-based investment group for $3 million.

The center is leased and managed by SRS Real Estate Partners.
