Jemison Park is a linear park along Mtn Brook Parkway designed for preservation as a greenway. The concrete Jemison Trail runs between the Parkway and Shades Creek. There are three crushed stone spur trails that offer a variety of scenic views. Connecting all of the trails, this provides a nice 2.5 mile + walking path along the greenway.
A 54-acre area designed for preservation as a green way, the trail at Jemison Park is used for walking, jogging, reading, bird watching, and enjoying a picnic. Visitors are able to relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature while they stroll along Shades Creek. Owls, hawks, raccoons, and fox are among the animals residing in the area, along with abundant native plant species.
The natural beauty of the area makes Jemison Park one of the most popular walking attractions in Mountain Brook. The one-mile trail connects with the Nature Trail and the Watkins Trace Trail and ties in with the City’s sidewalk system, allowing residents easy access to the park.
