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 brought the public opening of a trail system with over 10 miles of trails, plus a Zip Line Adventure course launched and saw more than 7,500 visitors flying through the trees! 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.
Every year brings even more trails, attractions, and amenities! Remy’s Dog Park, the Kaul Adventure Tower & Mega Zip, and two new tree houses are exceptional new additions. Please come enjoy the progress in 2015 and beyond. Every time you visit you’re likely to find something new!
