Center Point Parkway is the name of Alabama Highway 75 as it passes northward through Center Point. It begins at approximately 2 miles from Highway 75's intersection with Exit 134 at I-59 (where it starts as Roebuck Parkway and continues northward as Parkway East), at the southern intersection of Huffman Road in Huffman. It is known as Center Point Parkway for approximately 4 miles, and runs through the city limits of Birmingham, Center Point, Pinson, and parts of unincorporated Jefferson County until its intersection with Sweeney Hollow Road in Pinson, where it becomes Center Point Road. At its most southern section, it is 6 lanes wide, narrowing to 4 lanes at approximately around the 1200 block, and continuing as 4 lanes through the heart of Center Point and continuing as Pinson Boulevard. Beginning with the northern intersection of Huffman Road at around 16th Avenue, Center Point Parkway serves as the dividing line between avenues which run east to west. Avenues which continue west from the parkway are labeled "Northwest" and those traveling eastward are labeled "Northeast", with street numbering beginning at 1 in either direction.

Several businesses in the 2300 and 2400 blocks were damaged or destroyed during the January 2012 tornado outbreak.
