Welcome to our site–a source for community news and information about Red Mountain Park in Birmingham, Alabama.
For the last few years, a collection of individuals, non-profits, corporations, and governments have been working together to create one of the largest urban greenspaces in America (40% larger than New York’s Central Park). In 2008, roughly 1,200 acres was purchased from U.S. Steel and is now owned by the Red Mountain Park Commission. 2012 was a big year for the park: the eastern trail system opened to the public with over 10 miles of trails; a Zip Line Adventure course launched and saw more than 7,500 visitors flying through the trees; and several trail runs were staged. In 2013 even more trails were developed and the Hugh Kaul Beanstalk Forest opened—a unique aerial obstacle course that has entertained and challenged thousands of guests.
Now, in 2014, even more attractions and amenities are in the works! Please come enjoy the progress!
