Get ready to shout wheee! The ice rink at Birmingham’s Railroad Park returns Friday, November 22 with a brand new addition—a huge ice slide.
Yep, that’s right! What was once just an ice rink will now become a the city’s winter adventure “cool” spot.
As someone who loves slides, whether at a playground or waterpark, this news couldn’t be any more thrilling!

And based on the looks on the faces of absolutely everyone we’ve told about the new ice slide, we’re doing that on a whole other level this year.Camille Spratling, Executive Director, Railroad Park Foundation.
